The president took to Twitter on Tuesday to express his plan for what happens next regarding healthcare.
He tweeted: “Based on the fact that the very unfair and unpopular Individual Mandate has been terminated as part of our Tax Cut Bill, which essentially Repeals (over time) ObamaCare, the Democrats & Republicans will eventually come together and develop a great new HealthCare plan!”
The tweet comes on the heels of a Twitter battle the president had with Senator Bernie Sanders over the Christmas break. It’s also the second time that the president used softer language when referring to the individual mandate. Perhaps he now realizes the tax cuts won’t do much for the middle class unless something is done about the high costs of Obamacare.
The change in tone from Trump comes after Dennis Michael Lynch tweeted to the president that he was incorrect in declaring the individual mandate as the most hated part of Obamacare. DML reminded the president that the monthly costs and high deductibles are the worst part of the failed program.

I support you Mr President, but ur tweet is wrong. The mandate is bad, but the most hated part of ObamaCare is the monthly cost and the insane deductibles. The tax cuts, although appreciated, don't cover the premiums. I ask u not 2 open the bubbly until we all can. #EndObamaCare
