LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:
by Micah J. Fleck
Thomas Massie recently spoke with CNN regarding the latest claim that President Trump will now work with the Democrats to rework his agenda since the GOP was split on the initial reform plan and said plan fell through.
The Blaze reports:
Freedom Caucus ally Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) told Poppy Harlow of CNN that he thought President Trump was bluffing on working with the Democrats on his agenda items after the health care bill he backed was defeated partially by the caucus. He made the comments Friday.
“Are you as worried as your Speaker Paul Ryan is about this president working with Dems?” Harlow asked.
“I think thats a bluff,” Massie responded, “You know the president bluffed several times last week. He said there was gonna be a vote, whether it passed or failed. Well that didn’t happen.”
“He also said that negotiations are over,” Massie explained, “well, that clearly wasn’t true. And so, you know, I think this is just another one of his bluffs. Because within 12 hours he lashed back out at the Democrats, in that same tweet. So I just don’t see how he gets to 218 if he tries to alienate everybody.”
Is Massie correct? Or is President Trump truly serious this time?
