Trump Rips House Freedom Caucus Ahead of Vote On American Health Care Act

Trump

President Donald Trump was back on Twitter this morning with a new target in his crosshairs: The House Freedom Caucus.

The tweets reveal Trump’s obvious frustration with the recalcitrant Republican bloc, which has long been a thorn in the side of GOP leadership.

Hours before Speaker Paul Ryan postponed yesterday’s vote on the American Health Care Act, Trump huddled with Freedom Caucus members in an attempt to iron out a deal. The White House said the meeting went well, though Freedom Caucus chairman Mark Meadows said they failed to reach a deal to convince leery conservatives to get on board with the bill.

Trump has vowed to move on to other priorities if the current healthcare plan fails to advance.
