Donald Trump says ‘we must fight’ Republican party members in 2018 election

Donald Trump has effectively declared war on dozens of members of his own party, urging his supporters to “fight” the House Freedom Caucus in the upcoming midterm elections.

Members of the influential conservative group effectively helped kill the White House-approved health care plan last week, sparking several attacks from the President on Twitter.

But the bellicose leader signalled a dramatic intensification in his rift with the group, calling on his supporters to oppose Freedom Caucus members when they are up for re-election in 2018.
