Appearing on CNN's State of the Union Sunday, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) hit back at President Trump for his remarks about the House Freedom Caucus, of which he is a prominent member. First, host Jake Tapper set up the situation:
"President Trump is still licking his proverbial wounds after the stunning defeat of his healthcare bill at the hands of his own Party, and he is pinning the blame squarely upon the Freedom Caucus, a group of hardcore conservatives in the House of Representatives. The president tweeting: 'The Freedom Caucus will hurt the entire Republican agenda if they don't get on the team, and fast. We must fight them, and Dems, in 2018!'

So, will the president's threats work? Let's ask a top member of the Freedom Caucus who has been singled out by President Trump, Congressman Jim Jordan of Ohio...President Trump, as I don't need to tell you, is blaming you and two of your colleagues in the Freedom Caucus for the healthcare debacle. He tweeted: 'If Mark Meadows, Jim Jordan, and Raul Labrador would get on board, we would have both great healthcare, and massive tax cuts and reform.' The president seems to be placing the blame squarely on your shoulders. Is that fair?"
