“Dems want to greatly raise taxes for really bad and non-personal medical care. No thanks!” 

Thousands of people marched in London over the weekend to protest funding cuts to health services, according to reports.

Trump's tweet came after former UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage discussed the march on "Fox & Friends," BuzzFeed noted.

Republicans repeatedly failed last year to repeal and replace ObamaCare. The repeal of ObamaCare's individual mandate, however, was included in the GOP tax overhaul that passed late last year.

Then-President-elect Trump said in an interview early last year that his health-care plan would include “insurance for everybody.”

“We’re going to have insurance for everybody,” he told The Washington Post. “There was a philosophy in some circles that if you can’t pay for it, you don’t get it. That’s not going to happen with us."
