Washington: President Donald Trump has threatened Freedom Caucus by vowing to fight against them in the 2018 midterm elections, if they don’t get on the team.
“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!” Trump tweeted.
In an another tweet, Trump called out three members of the Freedom Caucus saying that if they got on board, “we would have both great healthcare and massive tax cuts & reform.”
“If @RepMarkMeadows, @Jim_Jordan and @Raul_Labrador would get on board we would have both great healthcare and massive tax cuts & reform. Where are @RepMarkMeadows, @Jim_Jordan and @Raul_Labrador? #RepealANDReplace #Obamacare,” Trump said in a series of tweet.
This came as a warning sign for Freedom Caucus members, who are opposing the American Health Care Act.
Trump had earlier criticized Freedom Caucus for nixing the party’s ObamaCare overhaul plan, saying that Democrats are “smiling” because the latter saved the struggling health care law and Planned Parenthood.
“Democrats are smiling in D.C. that the Freedom Caucus, with the help of Club For Growth and Heritage, have saved Planned Parenthood & Ocare!,” Trump tweeted.
The Freedom Caucus, also known as the House Freedom Caucus, is a congressional caucus consisting of libertarian and conservative Republican members of the United States House of Representatives (ANI)
