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!"
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
Here's Trump's Sunday morning tweet.
The irony is that the Freedom Caucus, which is very pro-life and against Planned Parenthood, allows P.P. to continue if they stop this plan!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 24, 2017
And here's a similar one from Friday.
This is not the end of the debate ... It's like saying that Tom Brady lost at halftime.
Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), chair of the Freedom Caucus, said on ABC's "This Week" Sunday that this was not the end of the fight to repeal Obamacare. He compared the political situation to the Super Bowl, where the New England Patriots' odds of victory looked dismal before a historic comeback.
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.
ObamaCare will explode and we will all get together and piece together a great healthcare plan for THE PEOPLE. Do not worry!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 25, 2017
Trump warned that Obamacare was due to "explode."
