President Donald Trump told GOP Senators Monday night they should go ahead and simply vote to repeal Obamcare now, then work out a replacement.

Trump tweet came after two more Republican senators, Kansas' Jerry Moran and Utah's Mike Lee, announced they will not support the current replacement legislation. Their two "no" votes, added to those of Kentucky's Rand Paul and Maine's Susan Collins — in addition to all 48 Democrats and independents — make the bill impossible for Republicans to pass.

Repealing and replacing President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law, known officially as the Affordable Care Act, has long been an effort of Republicans on Capitol Hill and was one of Trump's key campaign promises.
