The Freedom Caucus is a select group of the most conservative and libertarian members of the House of Representatives and very much in line with the Tea Party movement.
The group’s members are what some would call “outside the swamp” of Washington, D.C., and also credited with putting the brakes on the proposed American Health Care Act which failed to pass in the House last week.
President Trump suggested that the Freedom Caucus was only hurting itself and its interests by not supporting the bill. However, on Thursday, Trump went a step further.
The president tweeted: “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!”
