Trump makes veiled threat to GOP on Obamacare

President Donald Trump on Sunday evening again called on Republicans to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, adding in a veiled threat that the "repercussions will be far greater" than lawmakers might expect.

"If Republicans don’t Repeal and Replace the disastrous ObamaCare, the repercussions will be far greater than any of them understand!" the president stated on Twitter on Sunday evening.

Since Trump took over, Republicans have been working in fits and starts to alter or discard the Affordable Care Act. Last week, Republicans in the Senate failed to garner enough votes to pass their legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare, but may try again this week.

Earlier in the day, Trump went after members of his own party, saying Republicans "do very little to protect their President."

The president also criticized The New York Times and the Washington Post on Sunday night.

"It’s hard to read the Failing New York Times or the Amazon Washington Post because every story/opinion, even if should be positive, is bad!" Trump tweeted.

Trump has disparaged both newspapers before for their critical coverage of him during both his campaign and the opening months of his presidency. The president has had a strained relationship with numerous news outlets, often times attacking them on Twitter and calling them out at his rallies.
