Minutes after Mr. Trump’s post, his Republican critics took to Twitter to respond, in Trump-ese: "It’s a swamp not a hot tub. We both came here to drain it. #SwampCare polls 17%. Sad!" wrote Representative Thomas Massie, a Kentucky Republican who often sides with the [conservative] caucus on votes.
"It didn’t take long for the swamp to drain @realDonaldTrump," said Representative Justin Amash of Michigan, a member of the Freedom Caucus....
Michael Flynn Jr., a conservative activist — and son of Michael T. Flynn, Mr. Trump’s former national security adviser — went even further. "Why is @realDonaldTrump siding w/ estab Repubs (which we know r closet Dems) and looney Dems like Pelosi and Schumer? NOT WHAT WE VOTED FOR."
And the kicker!
On Wednesday — about 18 hours before Mr. Trump’s Twitter attack — senior officials from the White House invited two dozen leaders from conservative groups for a closed-door session to plot a path ahead.
