President Donald Trump praised his party's newly unveiled plan for replacing Obamacare on Tuesday.

He called the GOP-backed bill "wonderful" in a morning post on Twitter that also slammed Obamacare as "a complete and total disaster."

Later, he returned to Twitter with more commentary on the subject, responding to a discussion on Fox News' "Fox & Friends" with radio host Laura Ingraham.

Ingraham lamented the bill did not contain language to create more competition by allowing competition across state lines.

"I don't see any transparency and control of the skyrocketing prices of healthcare," Ingraham said. "I certainly don't see the competition across state lines.

"The drug companies, nowhere, no provisions about that as far as I can see.

"Trump went across the country, supported by both Democrats and Republicans, and a lot of what he was saying there, none of that, as far as I'm reading today, none of that is in the bill so far."

He later chimed in on drug prices:
