Trump to NC congressman: ‘I’m coming after you’

Republican Rep. Mark Meadows of North Carolina is coming under fire from President Donald Trump after saying he would refuse to support the Republican healthcare bill in its current form. Last week, Meadows told MSNBC he would need reassurance that premiums would come down and make healthcare more affordable. In the interview, he also said: “I am willing to invest the political capital to get it right. The next week is critical.”

According to NPR Politics, Meadows is “leading the charge” against the GOP healthcare plan. In a closed-door meeting on Tuesday, Trump delivered a message of tough love to his own party, warning members to support the bill or run the risk of being in a contentious primary. Another NPR article stated that “according to people in the room, Trump said, ‘Mark Meadows. I’m coming after you.'”

Meadows supported Cruz during the 2016 presidential campaign and was silent during the summer when asked if he’d support the party’s presumptive nominee.
