President Donald Trump appears to be losing faith that the Republican-controlled Senate can pass a healthcare bill.


"If Republican Senators are unable to pass what they are working on now, they should immediately REPEAL, and then REPLACE at a later date!," Trump tweeted Friday morning.

This is not the first time the president has admitted the current Republican bid to repeal and replace Obamacare may not succeed.

Trump met with Republican senators on Tuesday, just hours after Majority Leader Mitch McConnell delayed a vote on the party's healthcare bill, saying that if it doesn't pass he would "understand."

"This will be great if we get it done," Trump said. "And if we don't get it done, it's just going to be something that we're not going to like. And that's okay, and I understand that very well."
