At Least One Freedom Caucus Member Revolts After Trump Ultimatum

by Tyler Durden

However, if the following very direct message to the president, just tweeted by one of the more vocal members of the Freedom Caucus, is any indication, the market may once again be unduly optimistic as Trump's ultimatum appears to have backfired with at least one conservative Republican:

This is what Rep. Thomas Massie tweeted moments ago: "If Exec branch tells Legislative branch "when 2 vote" "how 2 vote" & "what it will b allowed 2 work on if vote fails," is that a republic?"

If Exec branch tells Legislative branch "when 2 vote" "how 2 vote" & "what it will b allowed 2 work on if vote fails," is that a republic?

Should other members of the Caucus share Massie's sentiment and feel compelled to join him, Trump's last ditch gamble for a successful vote after the close on Friday, may yet backfire bigly.
