Donald Trump tweeted Wednesday morning that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) would not do its job “for the people of the United States,” according to Axios.
“You can’t do your job as a president when you are acting in opposition to the people,” Trump said in a tweet, which was later deleted.
The President-elect also said that the FCC would not follow through on its promise to repeal and replace the Obama-era ObamaCare law that has been widely criticized for its flaws and lack of progress.
“Instead of trying to kill this horrible law, they want to get rid of it, and then the Democrats will be all over it, just like they did last year, when they were so busy trying to repeal the ACA, they didn’t even do the job,” Trump wrote.
“The only difference is they will be doing it for the people.
They will not do it in opposition.”
Trump has repeatedly called for the FCC to repeal or replace the Affordable Care Act, a law he has argued has made the United State less safe.
In June, Trump called for a repeal of the ACA after a federal judge struck down portions of the law, which he argued would have been harmful to the country.
Trump and other Republicans have argued that the law is the foundation of the country’s economic recovery.
But the law’s backers have argued the law has improved the lives of Americans.
The FCC has previously been criticized for failing to pass major reform of the ObamaCare system.
Earlier this month, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, who is also a Trump appointee, said the agency’s current repeal efforts “do not provide a clear path to success for the American people.”
“We’re not going to be able to repeal Obamacare for the simple reason that the current Congress doesn’t have the votes,” Pai said.
“But, we will be able, in a few years, to repeal it if and when the American public asks for it.”
