President Trump on Saturday took to Twitter to address the failure of the ObamaCare repeal bill, promising a “great healthcare plan FOR THE PEOPLE” eventually.

“ObamaCare will explode and we will all get together and piece together a great healthcare plan for THE PEOPLE. Do not worry!” Trump tweeted.


It was Trump’s first tweet about the GOP’s healthcare bill since it was pulled from the House floor Friday after it became apparent the bill would fail.

The tweet echoed Trump’s words to the media Friday afternoon, when he turned the blame on Democrats.

“We were very close, it was a very tight margin. We had no Democrat support, no votes from the Democrats,” Trump said Friday.

“I think the losers are Nancy Pelosi and Chuck SchumerCharles (Chuck) Ellis SchumerNo agreement on budget caps in sight ahead of Memorial Day recess Ex-White House photographer roasts Trump: 'This is what a cover up looked like' under Obama Pelosi: Trump 'is engaged in a cover-up' MORE because now they own ObamaCare,” the president added, referring to the House and Senate Democratic leaders.

“When it explodes, which it will soon, if they got together with us and we got a real healthcare bill, I would be totally open to” working with Democrats, Trump said. 

The president followed up his healthcare tweet Saturday with a promotion for a Fox News show.
