In a Monday tweet, President Donald Trump seemed very confused about what exactly "Medicare for All" means.
"Everybody agrees that ObamaCare doesn’t work. Premiums & deductibles are far too high - Really bad HealthCare! Even the Dems want to replace it, but with Medicare for all, which would cause 180 million Americans to lose their beloved private health insurance," Trump tweeted.

The reason people would "lose" their "beloved private health insurance" is because they would get free healthcare through "Medicare for All." Presumably, that's why it's called "Medicare for All" and not "your believed private health insurance," which is the existing health plan.
The Republicans have been trying to unmake the Affordable Care Act since 2010, but have not been successful. Despite promising "repeal and replace" of the law, Republicans have yet to propose a replacement in nearly a decade. The majority of Americans support the law, despite few pieces that the GOP has been successful in striking down.
"The Republicans are developing a really great HealthCare Plan with far lower premiums (cost) & deductibles than ObamaCare. In other words it will be far less expensive & much more usable than ObamaCare. Vote will be taken right after the Election when Republicans hold the Senate & win back the House. It will be truly great HealthCare that will work for America. Also, Republicans will always support Pre-Existing Conditions. The Republican Party will be known as the Party of Great HealtCare. Meantime, the USA is doing better than ever & is respected again!" Trump also said.
