New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker (D) hit President Trump on Thursday by retweeting the president's criticism of ObamaCare from three years ago and drawing comparisons to the GOP healthcare bill.

In 2014, Trump tweeted "It’s Thursday. How many people have lost their healthcare today?" in a jab at then-President Barack ObamaBarack Hussein ObamaBudowsky: Biden or Beto: Where's the beef? Super Tuesday bonanza raises stakes for Dems Whatever happened to nuclear abolition? MORE.

Today, Booker, who has been mentioned as a possible 2020 White House contender, retweeted it, adding "Yes it's Thursday Mr. President & if your bill passes at least 24 Million will lose care as the wealthy like u will get a huge tax cut."

Booker's tweet refers to a report by the the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office that estimated 24 million fewer people would have health insurance in a decade under the GOP plan.

The House was expected to vote on the new bill Thursday, the seven-year anniversary of ObamaCare becoming law. But early in the afternoon, a delay of the vote seemed possible amid reports it may lack the necessary support among Republicans.
