As GOP schism grows, Trump attacks fellow Republicans

In an interview with CBS This Morning, House Speaker Ryan said the Republican health care bill did not survive because the members of his party are going through a "very painful growing pain".

Reporters asked Rep. Amash if Trump's tweets serve any negotiating goal or have any constructive purposes.

But, as noted, there is one respect in which Trump's tweet was a clever move. "It defies to me to understand where they're coming from".

Their tactics on health care prompted yet another call for party unity this week from House Speaker Paul Ryan.

Speaking to reporters later Thursday, Ryan amplified Trump's comments. "I share (the) frustration".

Trump's tweets, showing an increasingly aggressive and hard-edged view of the Freedom Caucus, represent his own unfiltered take on a group that is viewed inside the White House as threatening ambitious agenda.

Over the course of the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump voters time and time again said they were supporting their candidate because they wanted to disrupt the political order in Washington and get things done.

Poe's exit is the group's first defection since it emerged in 2015.

Ryan repeated that "90%" of his caucus is for the health care measure, but would not commit to a timeline on holding another vote. It's a good way of reinforcing the firm conclusion some House conservatives have already reached: Trump is not one of them, and their sole area of mutual interest is rhetorical railing against the establishment.

Trump will argue he is immune from lawsuits until he leaves office
She said Zervos 'seeks vindication of her rights and reputation, ' and that 'We look forward to arguing this issue in court'. She said at a later meeting at a California hotel he became sexually aggressive, kissing her and touching her breasts.

But, sources say, it's a threat that could eventually ring true if the Freedom Caucus doesn't change its tune. Texas Rep. Ted Poe, one of the original members of the caucus, resigned from the group this week after the failure of the GOP health care bill, voicing disagreement with how the group handled negotiations. But we don't know the name of every lawmaker in the group because the Freedom Caucus doesn't make membership public.

The Republican leadership in the House of Representatives avoided to take sides, but offered lukewarm support for Trump.

Griffith's communications director, Jessica Paska, said in an email: "Congressman Griffith said, 'I have been on board with the health care legislation, including voting for parts of it in Committee".

"When you're thinking, 'I gotta get this bill passed, I gotta have 218, ' sometimes you forget what it was you used to have press conferences and fuss about".

"It didn't take long for the swamp to drain @realDonaldTrump", Amash wrote on Twitter. "No shame, Mr President".

But behind the scenes, Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and chief strategist Steve Bannon pushed for a vote even after it was clear the GOP bill did not have enough support to pass. "That would help the country, that would be the best way to reform health care, I think it would change his numbers". Rep. Chris Collins (R-N.Y.), a Tuesday Group member, told reporters there is an agreement among its members that outreach from the HFC has been a waste of energy.

Meadows, uncharacteristically declined to weigh in on Trump's tweet. Nearly everyone succumbs to the D.C. Establishment."On Tuesday, Trump expressed optimism about getting healthcare legislation through Congress despite the failure of the House bill last Friday, telling a gathering of senators "that's such an easy one" and that he expected lawmakers to reach a deal "very quickly". BUT IF you go after the conservatives in Congress.we are done.

"He's got a mindset and that's his mindset, apparently", said Weber.
