|The "do-nothing" Republican Freedom Caucus is about to oppose Donald J. Trump.|
This is a well-known public feud going on within the Republican Party. The moderates, rank-and-file, and conservative members of the House of Representatives are infighting.
It's proving that Republicans are failures at governing. And of course, the pledge to "drain the swamp" was "words and speeches."
Fuhrer Donald J. Trump is none too happy with the Republicans right now. He is pretty pissed that the "repeal and replace" Obamacare bill failed. He took to social media to blast the "do-nothing" Freedom Caucus.
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 fuhrer called out specifically the leaders of the "do-nothing" Freedom Caucus. He blames them for the partisan gridlock in Washington.
Trump threatened to knock off members of the Freedom Caucus in next year's elections if they don't fall in line --- this move noted by the Washington Post is extraordinary.
The fuhrer is willing to take on a block of conservatives who were instrumental in getting him into the White House.
Trump said that he would be motivated to recruit candidates willing to support his agenda.
The "do-nothing" Freedom Caucus scoffed at Trump.
Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) remarked in response.
It didn't take long for the swamp to drain @realDonaldTrump. No shame, Mr. President. Almost everyone succumbs to the D.C. Establishment. https://t.co/9bDo8yzH7I— Justin Amash (@justinamash) March 30, 2017
This "civil war" between Republicans has become a big issue. This eliminates Donald J. Trump's promise to work along party lines.
