Trump Slams House Freedom Caucus, Says They'll Be Supporting Planned Parenthood If They Oppose AHCA

President Trump issued an ultimatum to Republicans Thursday night about the GOP’s healthcare legislation, and now he’s turning up the pressure with some pointed comments aimed directly at recalcitrant House Freedom Caucus members.

“The irony is that the Freedom Caucus, which is very pro-life and against Planned Parenthood, allows P.P. to continue if they stop this plan!” Trump tweeted Friday morning.

Ouch.

Just prior to that, he tweeted that “After seven horrible years of ObamaCare (skyrocketing premiums & deductibles, bad healthcare), this is finally your chance for a great plan!”

The vote is being held Friday and Trump threatened he will walk away, leaving Obamacare law of the land, if Republicans don’t pass the bill.

As Guy reported Thursday, Trump’s ultimatum may have led some GOP lawmakers to come around.    

This is our “art of the deal” president at work, folks.
