On Thursday, after President Trump ripped the conservative Freedom Caucus on Twitter, threatening “we must fight them” because they stood up for conservative principles and derailed his healthcare plan, one Freedom Caucus member and another GOP House member who supports them, struck back with a vengeance, noting that Trump’s campaign promises to “drain the swamp” were precisely the reverse of what had eventuated.
Trump prompted the fiery responses with this:
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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 30, 2017
Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) of the Freedom Caucus struck back less than an hour later:
