Trump takes aim at McConnell and Obama on Twitter while on vacation
On Thursday morning, President Donald Trump started out the day by attacking Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and former president Barack Obama.
“Can you believe that Mitch McConnell, who has screamed Repeal & Replace for 7 years, couldn’t get it done. Must Repeal & Replace ObamaCare!” he tweeted.
This is the second time in as many days that Trump has come after McConnell for the failure of the health care bill.
Can you believe that Mitch McConnell, who has screamed Repeal & Replace for 7 years, couldn’t get it done. Must Repeal & Replace ObamaCare!

What’s more, Trump also retweeted a poll from a right-leaning Twitter account called ProgressPolls that showed a survey saying 61 percent of people thought he was a better president than Obama.
The Twitter account has no accompanying website and appears to be a Twitter-only polling account that follows only 60 accounts, most of which are right-leaning news outlets and politicians. Other polls run by the account have shown people in opposition to Jim Acosta and have also shown people saying that the gender pay gap does not exist.
Although Trump is currently on a “working vacation,” he has not stayed out of the national spotlight, taking to Twitter not only to double down on his recent inflammatory rhetoric against North Korea but also to make attacks like this on his political enemies.
Who is a better President of the United States? #ObamaDay
