Senate Republicans getting fed up with Trump

25 August, 2017, 01:39 | Author: Valerie Burke

Here's an example of why: In last year's election, Trump carried MI by less than 0.3 percent and the state has at least 21 official white-oriented hate groups, as tracked by the Southern Poverty Law Center. That led to another contentious conversation with Republican Senator Thom Tillis, who is working on a bill with Democratic Senator Chris Coons to ensure Trump can not fire special counsel Robert Mueller in the middle of his investigation into collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign. After Trump's defense of some of the white nationalist protesters in Charlottesville, some members of the party stepped up their criticism. Sen.

Trump in recent days has praised Flake's primary challenger, former state Sen. "I think I got caught up in a wave".

An unscripted and angry President Trump unloaded on Congress at a campaign rally in Phoenix, leaving lawmakers increasingly apprehensive about the party's ambitious fall agenda that includes an overhaul of the entire federal tax code.

In public, Republican leaders have tried to downplay any challenges with Trump."The President and I, and our teams, have been and continue to be in regular contact about our shared goals", McConnell said in a statement Wednesday afternoon. You'll remember John McCain hasn't just spent a lot of time rebuking Trump's rhetoric and actions but also put the final nail in the coffin for the GOP's plan to repeal and replace Obamacare.

Like Schatz, I would rather be governed by McMaster, Kelly and Mattis than by Trump. "He did at times, but then he wavered back and forth in his message".

In the book, Flake warns that "conservatism has become compromised by other powerful forces - nationalism, populism, xenophobia" as reflected by Trump's rise to power.

Unattended package near White House fence sparks Secret Service, police response

Two per cent backed either Senator Ben Sasse, or Senator Tom Cotton, one a Trump critic, one a rising star. When Barack Obama was president, she was the sole member of the GOP to vote against a series of show votes that party leaders held to repeal Obama's signature achievement, knowing that he would not sign them.

There has been plenty to criticize Congressional Republicans over during Donald Trump's term.

House and Senate Republican leaders, recognizing that a shutdown could be punishing for their majorities, might decide to send Trump a bipartisan bill to the president's desk that dodges hot-button issues altogether.

To date this year, Congress has lived up to its do-nothing reputation, with not-too-many major legislative accomplishments; Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch's confirmation, benefits for veterans, and various regulation rollbacks are perhaps the most notable exceptions. "I strongly condemn neo-Nazis, white supremacists and the KKK".

But in general, Trump has stronger support in the House, where GOP lawmakers tend to represent more conservative constituencies. Further ruptures risk a government shutdown, a blow to the country that would tar Republicans in the White House and Congress.
