Mark Meadows, the Republican leader of the House Freedom Caucus, reacted on ABC’s This Week this morning to President Trump calling out the caucus in a tweet:
Democrats are smiling in D.C. that the Freedom Caucus, with the help of Club For Growth and Heritage, have saved Planned Parenthood & Ocare!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 26, 2017
Meadows had no words of criticism for the president, telling George Stephanopoulos that there’s been a lot of discussion in the past 48 hours about how Republicans can come together to “get this over the finish line.”
He said that Democrats shouldn’t be applauding what happened, because America’s health care system still requires some serious changes. Meadows admitted he’s done some “self-critiquing” lately, but this isn’t the end of the debate.
“The most valuable player,” he said, “will be President Trump on this, because he will deliver.”
Meadows also said this is not a “great failure” for Trump because “he’s done more in 65 days than any president in modern history.”
