Trump Signals He's Ready to Work With Democrats

Updated on

President Donald Trump said he is ready to “fight” the conservative House Freedom Caucus, citing several Republicans by name and warning it could drag down the GOP’s entire agenda, a sign of deep disarray after the embarrassing setback on its attempted Obamacare repeal.

“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!” Trump tweeted Thursday morning, raising the stakes on next year’s congressional elections as party leaders try to turn their attention to a promised tax overhaul.
