A House Freedom Caucus member is defending the group's opposition to the failed GOP health care bill. That's after President Donald Trump lashed out at the Republican conservative group Thursday morning.

Jim Jordan of Ohio says, "I respect the president, but our focus is on the legislation."

Trump tweeted that the caucus will hurt the Republican agenda if they don't get on the team fast, and added, "We must fight them, & Dems, in 2018!"

The caucus contributed to the humiliating failure of the GOP health care bill that would have replaced Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act. They complained the bill didn't do enough to get the government out of health care.

Jordan cites polls showing opposition to the bill, saying, "It doesn't change Washington like we told them we were going to change Washington."
