Trump Slams Freedom Caucus, Political Twitter Responds: ‘What a Stupid Mistake’

”If you come at the Freedom Caucus, you better be prepared for a fight,“ conservative radio host Joe Walsh tweets

President Trump took to Twitter early Thursday morning to criticize the Freedom Caucus, lumping the group in with Democrats, and saying the “Republican agenda” will suffer if they don’t get on board.

The Freedom Caucus is a congressional caucus consisting of conservative Republican members of the United States House of Representatives. The group helped kill the GOP health care plan last week.

The Freedom Caucus has a reputation as “anti-establishment agitators,” according to NPR. Trump’s tweet against fellow Republicans has caused quite a stir on social media.

Former congressman and conservative radio host Joe Walsh tweeted, “If you come at the Freedom Caucus, you better be prepared for a fight. You’ll risk losing your majority in 18, Don.”

Walsh also wrote, “This sounds more like a threat that he’ll work with Dems and GOP establishment. Repeal Obamacare. Bring Jobs. Lower Tax. Let’s go, Donny.”

Political columnist Ben Shapiro wrote, “Trump tweets he wants to fight the Freedom Caucus and Dems. That leaves him with 216 votes in House. He needs 218 to pass anything. Genius.”
