WASHINGTON — With only a few days left for Republicans to try one last time to repeal Obamacare, President Donald Trump on Wednesday stepped up the public pressure on GOP lawmakers to get behind the legislation.

The president targeted Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who has already come out against the Graham-Cassidy bill, calling him a "negative force" on health care.
 
Trump then targeted all Republican senators, urging them to "fulfill their promise" to voters.
 
Paul responded that Graham-Cassidy is "amnesty" for Obamacare and said he would work with Trump to put a full repeal in place.
