Days after blaming Democrats for the failed attempt to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, President Trump took aim at the House Freedom Caucus on Twitter Sunday morning.

Echoing a similar tweet from Friday, Trump said the conservative caucus had "saved Planned Parenthood & Ocare!" 

Many members of the caucus refused to support the American Health Care Act, leading House Republicans to pull it from a vote. Trump vowed to move on to other issues and let Obamacare "explode." 

Here's Trump's Sunday morning tweet.

White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus said some GOP leaders were "scrambling."

In a Fox News interview Sunday, he said some conservatives may have been overly perfectionist.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich said Republicans should have involved Democrats more in the process.
