After days of negotiations with the House Freedom Caucus over legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare, President Donald Trump lashed out at the GOP’s uncooperative conservative wing Friday morning, telling his millions of Twitter followers that their stubbornness is working in favor of Planned Parenthood.
“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 wrote on Twitter Friday morning.
The president, who on Thursday demanded an up or down vote for the imperiled White House-backed legislation, also said Friday morning that the proposal “is finally your chance for a great plan!”
“After seven horrible years of ObamaCare (skyrocketing premiums & deductibles, bad healthcare), this is finally your chance for a great plan!” Trump wrote on Twitter in a post that preceded his Planned Parenthood dig.
