US President Donald Trump is taking time out of his July 4 schedule to celebrate Michigan Rep. Justin Amash leaving the Republican Party.
Trump in a tweet calls Amash “one of the dumbest & most disloyal men in Congress.”
Amash has been critical of Trump in recent months, but did not mention the president in his op-ed announcing his departure from the party, which he attributed to hyperpartisan politics.
“A total loser!” Trump says.
Great news for the Republican Party as one of the dumbest & most disloyal men in Congress is “quitting” the Party. No Collusion, No Obstruction! Knew he couldn’t get the nomination to run again in the Great State of Michigan. Already being challenged for his seat. A total loser!
