President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Wednesday to slam Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski for her opposition against the healthcare bill Tuesday night.

Murkowski was one of two Republican senators who voted against even opening debate on the measure; she and Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, believe no such repeal of Obamacare should happen without a suitable replacement plan.

Nine Republicans altogether voted against the healthcare measure, which needed 60 votes for passage; it got just 43.

Trump issued a warning Tuesday to Republican senators who vote against any of the sundry bills being floated in the upper chamber.

"Any senator who votes against repeal and replace is telling America that they are fine with the Obamacare nightmare," Trump said at a rally in Youngstown, Ohio. "And I predict they'll have a lot of problems."
