Rep. Mark Sanford: Trump Threatened Me With Primary Opponent If I Didn't Vote For American Health Care Act (AHCA)

Appearing on CNN's State of the Union Sunday, Rep. Mark Sanford (R-SC) flatly stated that President Donald Trump sent Office of Management and Budget (OMB) director, Mick Mulvaney, to threaten him with a primary opponent if he didn't vote for the American Health Care Act (AHCA):
"He [Trump] sent as his emissary Mick Mulvaney, who I've known for a long time – he's from our state, and he's now the OMB director – he said: 'The president hopes you vote against this because he wants to run somebody against you if you do.'
LISTEN to Sanford's comments ABOVE
I think that those kinds of threats are counterproductive; he's made those kinds of threats to any number of different members within the conference; and you know, it all, I guess, fits in love, war, and politics – but I don't think it's particularly productive to his own legislative agenda. We'll see what comes."
