POLITICS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “President Trump is threatening the conservative group that opposed him on health care, raising the specter of intraparty opposition in next year’s midterm elections.
‘The Freedom Caucus will hurt the entire Republican agenda if they don’t get on the team, & fast,’ Trump tweeted. ‘We must fight them, & Dems, in 2018!’
The threat comes a week after opposition from members of the House Freedom Caucus blocked a House vote on a health care plan designed to “repeal and replace” the legislation President Barack Obama signed in 2010.”
