President Donald Trump continued his attacks against the House Freedom Caucus, saying they must be fought in 2018.

“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!” he wrote on Twitter Thursday morning.

Trump was highly critical of the caucus as negotiations over the American Health Care Act were underway. He said their opposition to the legislation meant they were supporting Planned Parenthood and Obamacare.

 “Democrats are smiling in D.C. that the Freedom Caucus, with the help of Club For Growth and Heritage, have saved Planned Parenthood & Ocare!” he tweeted after the bill was pulled.
