Donald Trump threatens to sabotage healthcare for millions of Americans in massive Obamacare strop : Mirror.

Seething Donald Trump threw a massive strop about his failed plan to scrap Obamacare, and threatened to deliberately destabilise the healthcare system for millions of Americans.

President Trump, who is under criminal investigation for obstruction of justice, suffered a humiliating defeat on Friday, after Democrats and Republican rebels scuppered his plan to axe Obamacare.

And while his tweets in the hours following the crunch vote lacked Trump’s usual vigour, he returned to the social network last night with renewed fury.

He has previously threatened to “let Obamacare implode” if he can’t scrap it in Congress – and it looks like he plans to give it a helping hand.

He tweeted: “After seven years of “talking” Repeal & Replace, the people of our great country are still being forced to live with imploding ObamaCare!

“If a new HealthCare Bill is not approved quickly, BAILOUTS for Insurance Companies and BAILOUTS for Members of Congress will end very soon!”

In his flurry of tweets, the President of the United States appears to be threatening to deliberately destabilise the system that provides affordable health insurance to more than 10 million Americans.

Under the Affordable Care Act, the Government subsidises insurance companies who offer reduced costs for low and middle income people.

Scrapping those subsidies would likely cause insurance companies to pull out of the Obamacare marketplace altogether, sending premiums for the companies who remain skyrocketing.

    President Donald Trump just who does he represent and is he governing for all Americans. From the views he campaigned on you would feel he was there for the oppressed Americans who voted for him and believed in him and many of whom still do.

    But many of the policies which he is trying to bring into force appear to be, in the main, for the benefit of the rich in America, both individuals and corporations.

    This appears, certainly in the case of health care, ‘Trump Care’ has failed to progress on a number of occasions and if it did succeed could well not provide health care for those in most need, if you take into account all the rhetoric.

    However, Trump still wishes to stop ‘Obama Care’, in anyway possible to make it fail, thereby taking much needed health care away from those in most need.

    How can he believe he is doing all he can for all the people of America.
