President Trump Hammers House Freedom Caucus
US President Donald Trump hammered the conservative House Freedom Caucus Thursday and warned members to get on the Republican Team — FAST.
The Tweet from President Trump
The Freedom Caucus will hurt the entire Republican agenda if they don’t get on the team, & fast. We must fight them, & Dems, in 2018!
The caucus, made up of about 36 conservatives, helped to kill the White House-backed GOP healthcare plan.
“We are not an independent group,” Rep. Joe Barton, a Freedom Caucus member and the senior member of the Texas Republican congressional delegation, said before the president’s tweet. “We are part of the Republican conference. We have an obligation to govern.”
