From Showtime's 'The Circus': Mark McKinnon goes behind closed doors inside a meeting of the House Freedom Caucus, many of whom oppose the GOP health care bill, where Senator Rand Paul has a message for the group's conservative members that President Trump and readers of "The Art of the Deal" might be familiar with.
One quote he used to educate the Freedom Caucus about dealing with Trump, with the caption: USE YOUR LEVERAGE:
"The worst thing you can possibly do in a deal is seem desperate to make it. That makes the other guy smell blood, and then you're dead." -- Donald Trump
Sen. Paul said to the Freedom caucus: "Right now, what I'm hearing at the White House the other day, I heard that they're already giving this, giving this, giving that, so you have to decide to you like the bill, or are you with some of us who would like to do a clean repeal."
Host Mark McKinnon commented: We saw enough members in that room to kill the bill."
