Speaker shares Trump criticism of Freedom Caucus

He also said he had no hard feelings toward the Freedom Caucus, who he described as "friends of mine".

President Donald Trump and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan both went after the group of far-right Republicans who keep torpedoing Republican legislative efforts.

A White House source says the president is sitting back, letting the Freedom Caucus and Tuesday Group work to see if they can find points of agreement before stepping back in.

His vote won over Mary Broecker, president of the Oldham County Republican Women's Club and a strong proponent of a full-blown repeal of the 2010 law. In that effort Bannon had some allies within the Freedom Caucus, who did successfully push his predecessor John Boehner out of that position. In the end, about a dozen mainstream Republicans and the majority of the Freedom Caucus said they wouldn't back the bill.

"The Freedom Caucus is trying to change Washington", he said.

Congressman Thomas Massie (R-KY), though not a Freedom Caucus member, was one of the most vocal House members against the American Health Care Act. Shortly after Mr Trump fired his Thursday morning broadside, Justin Amash, a prominent member of the Freedom Caucus, offered his reply. They complained the bill didn't do enough to get the government out of health care.

"In my district, we're very conservative so If he gets me out of office, he's going to get someone more conservative than me", DesJarlais said. So I'm disappointed. I'm a little surprised I could tell you.

We were supposed to support Trump because he was the guy who was finally going to break the corrupt Republican 'establishment.' Now he's the guy launching tweet-storms on behalf of the establishment and against the House Freedom Caucus-the guys who actually did break the GOP establishment. "Nearly everyone succumbs to the D.C. Establishment".
