President Donald Trump ripped congressional Republicans on Twitter over the weekend because "he's hoping they'll join him in pushing forward" his agenda, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday.

"The president is very committed to a robust agenda and changing America for the better — and Republicans have both the House and Senate," she said at the daily press briefing.

"He's hoping they'll join him in pushing forward."

On Sunday, the president slammed GOP legislators — "even some that were carried over the line on my back" — for not protecting him since taking office.

Sanders declined to identify any Republicans Trump might have been targeting, but she cited repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act as an example of where legislators needed to "step up."

"A lot of the policies that most of those people campaigned on, like repealing and replacing Obamacare — that's a perfect example of Republicans needing to step up to commitments that they made during the campaign and since being elected, and get those things done."
