The Wrestling Congressman Responds to Trump

Jim Jordan was a two-time NCAA Division I wrestling champion. He is a strong Christian. He is unyielding in his belief that government has gotten too big. And he has come under attack from President Trump for failing to support the health care legislation that would have locked Obamacare into place.

Now, Congressman Jordan is responding and won’t be bullied.

“Tweets and statements and blame don’t change facts,” Jordan, an Ohio Republican, told Jake Tapper on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “And the facts remain the same. When you look at the document, when you look at the legislation, it doesn’t repeal Obamacare.”

He also has promised to do everything he can to help Justin Amash get re-elected should the White House carry out Dan Scavino’s threat to primary Amash.
