Freedom Caucus Member Urges Trump to 'Remember Who Your Real Friends Are'

Rep. Raúl Labrador (R-Idaho) urged President Trump on Thursday to remember who his real friends in Washington are.

"Freedom Caucus stood with u when others ran. Remember who your real friends are,” Labrador tweeted to Trump. “We're trying to help u succeed.”

Earlier on Thursday Trump again attacked the caucus, tweeting, “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!”

Labrador argued the caucus, by opposing the American Health Care Act, was not hurting the GOP agenda, but was in fact trying to help Trump.

@realDonaldTrump R's promised to repeal ACA's "knot of regulations, taxes, and mandates." AHCA fails to to do so and polls @ 17%,” Labrador added.

Not all Freedom Caucus members took the high road, however. Rep. Justin Amash was quick to hit back at Trump.

“It didn’t take long for the swamp to drain @realDonaldTrump,” wrote Amash. "No shame, Mr. President. Almost everyone succumbs to the D.C. Establishment.”
