Trump Not Just Pointing the Finger at Democrats Over Healthcare Bill Failure

President Donald Trump lashed out at Republican leaders and groups on Sunday for the defeat of the bill to repeal and replace his predecessor’s health-care law, after blaming Democrats for the loss on Friday.

In a Twitter posting to his 27 million followers, Trump criticized the House Freedom Caucus, the conservative Heritage Foundation and the free-market advocacy group Club for Growth, which opposed the bill for not going far enough to erase Obamacare, the system implemented by Democrats under President Barack Obama.

“Democrats are smiling in D.C. that the Freedom Caucus, with the help of Club for Growth and Heritage, have saved Planned Parenthood & Ocare!” Trump said.
