A top aide to President Donald Trump is urging the primary defeat of a conservative House member from Michigan. Saturday's tweet by White House social media director Dan Scavino Jr. comes two days after Trump threatened conservative lawmakers who thwarted a House vote on health care legislation. Scavino targeted congressman Justin Amash of Michigan, a member of the conservative Freedom Caucus criticized by Trump.

President Donald Trump trained his fire on members of his own party Thursday, declaring in the aftermath of the Republican's failed health care push that the conservative Freedom Caucus will hurt the entire GOP agenda. He vowed to "fight them" in 2018 if they don't get behind him.

Michigan Representative Justin Amash joined a number of Republican's who are calling for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to recuse himself from FBI investigations of Russian interference during the Presidential election. 

In a tweet sent out Tuesday, Amash said "AG Sessions should recuse himself from the Russian investigation."

Call it what you want, says President Donald Trump in a Wednesday tweet, but his executive order to restrict travelers from seven Muslim-majority countries to enter the U.S. is about keeping "bad people" out.

U.S. Representative Justin Amash disagrees calling it unlawful.

The Cascade Township republican spoke with WGVU about his recent Facebook post that says "President Trump's executive order overreaches and undermines the nation’s constitutional system."

Grand Rapids’ Betsy DeVos is considered by many democrats to be one of the more controversial of Donald Trump's cabinet nominees.

Tuesday, DeVos won Senate Health, Education, Pensions and Labor Committee approval to be education secretary.

“I’ve been supportive of Betsy. She’s worked in the education field for a long time and I’m hopeful she can make a difference.”

That’s Cascade Township Republican, U.S. Representative Justin Amash providing his views from the House.

The next Commander in Chief has made it standard operation using Twitter to get his message across. President-elect Donald Trump tweets at all hours and a number of them have been controversial. 

Earlier this week, one tweet struck a nerve with some members of Trump’s party. For one West Michigan Congressional leader it wasn’t that one tweet, it’s the non-stop tweeting in general. WGVU sat down with the man who authored the tweet heard ‘round the world.

“I just said, ‘Dude, just stop!’”
