Health care defeat means GOP risks blame in '18 elections

Health care defeat means GOP risks blame in '18 elections

Rep. Amash did publicly respond to Scavino on Twitter, referring to the blending of the Trump administration and the establishment that his campaign once railed against as the "Trumpstablishment".

Amash and Stanford are not the first Freedom Caucus members on Trump's political hit list.

"The Freedom Caucus will hurt the entire Republican agenda if they don't get on the team, & fast", Trump tweeted Thursday. Rand Paul has a competing ObamaCare replacement bill, said White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney told him: "The president asked me to look you square in the eyes and to say that he hoped that you voted "no" on this bill so he could run (a primary challenger) against you in 2018", according to the paper.

In a tweet on Saturday, Dan Scavino, the White House director of social media, called on voters to defeat congressman Justin Amash of MI.

Britain and Spain have engaged in centuries of squabbling over the territorial status of "the rock", and the EU's stance is likely to intensify those arguments.

Scavino, who also serves as a senior aide to the president, called Amash a "big liability" in a tweet posted Saturday.

Trump admin & Establishment have merged into #Trumpstablishment.

Spokesmen for the White House did not immediately reply to requests for comment on Scavino's tweet.

Ethics lawyers who worked for both Republican and Democratic presidents said Scavino violated the Hatch Act, a federal law that limits political activity by government employees.

Now, however, Mr Rutte begins the painstaking task of pulling together a new coalition, which could still take months to form. As EU leaders meet in Rome next weekend they will no doubt take heart as a result of the Dutch election.

Scavino's criticisms of Amash come from his personal Twitter account, rather than his official White House account.

Richard Painter, who at one time was the chief White House ethics lawyer for President George W. Bush, called attention to the description beneath the photo on the account Scavino has designated as personal. "WH staff can't use an official or de facto govt Twitter acct (which this is) to call for defeat of a candidate", he wrote on Twitter. Although this means that the comments should not be construed to represent an official position of the White House, it's still notable that someone so close to the president would openly attack a congressman from the president's own party.

Two days after Trump himself tweeted a threat to the conservative House Freedom Caucus, a group of fellow Republicans, Scavino followed up Saturday by singling out Rep.

Also that day, The Post and Courier newspaper in SC reported that Trump dared Freedom Caucus member Rep. Mark Sanford, R-S.C., to vote against the overhaul bill.
