President Trump tweeted Sunday morning that despite previously declaring that Republicans "must fight" members of his own party to achieve its agenda, the "love and strength" in the party would keep alive hopes of repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act.
Anybody (especially Fake News media) who thinks that Repeal & Replace of ObamaCare is dead does not know the love and strength in R Party!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 2, 2017
Here are Trump's morning tweets.
Talks on Repealing and Replacing ObamaCare are, and have been, going on, and will continue until such time as a deal is hopefully struck.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 2, 2017
The real story turns out to be SURVEILLANCE and LEAKING! Find the leakers.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 2, 2017
He also pivoted from health care to talk about the ongoing Russia scandal.
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
The "love and strength" message is a far cry from the "must fight" tone on Thursday.
He even called out certain Freedom Caucus members by name.
One of them, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), dismissed Trump's criticism.
Trump's approval rating has dropped to 40 percent, with a disapproval rating of 56 percent in Friday's Gallup poll. However, 50 percent approve of his handling of the economy, according to a recent AP poll.
