Trump Threatens Shutdown, Attacks GOP Senators During Angry Rally

25 August 2017

I am merely calling attention to how much power we already have conceded, expressly and by implication, to the officer corps and how much more we may depend on them before the Trump presidency is over. "I don't think anyone is interested in having a shutdown". He went after Sen.

And it's part of a pattern of this administration that's trying to bully or threaten senators like they did with John McCain and with Lisa Murkowski of Alaska during the health care vote. "Your other senator, who's weak on the border weak on crime".

" is a principled legislator & always does what's right for the people of #AZ", McCain tweeted shortly after Trump's criticism.

Republicans in the capital, losing their ability to be shocked at the president's words, now see an opening to take charge.

On Jan. 21, 2021, whether Donald Trump is a former president or reinaugurated, the GOP will begin anew the search for its next leader. "Legislative wins can serve as a welcome distraction from these internecine battles". "They have to appeal to a broader segment of the electorate than do House members, especially those in gerrymandered congressional districts", said Republican pollster Whit Ayres. So, I ask them what they want their legacy to be. The bill cleared Congress overwhelmingly last month and Trump grudgingly signed it on August 2. And even if Flake holds her off, a costly and unnecessary primary race could weaken him in the general election, while draining resources Republicans should be using to target vulnerable Senate Democrats and expand the GOP's Senate majority. "That just can't help his relevance".

Steven Law, a former chief of staff to McConnell and current CEO of the Senate Leadership Fund, a super PAC endorsed by McConnell to elect Senate Republicans, said that Republicans will be hyper-focused not on Trump but on tax reform in the fall.

But the following day, the White House essentially doubled down, refusing to say that Trump had backed away from his shutdown threat over the wall. In fact, the only noteworthy accomplishment of this legislative session has been a bill that severely restricts Trump's ability to negotiate with Russian Federation lest he be tempted to roll back sanctions placed on the country for meddling in the 2016 election.

"I think this is more a symptom of the president's frustration".

Apple to build $1.4bn data center in Iowa
The Apple data center in Maiden, North Carolina. "Waukee is proud to welcome Apple", said Waukee Mayor Bill Peard. Like Apple's other U.S. data centers, the Iowa one will produce 100 percent renewable energy, he said.

In a new report released today, the Quinnipiac Poll says many American voters believe the Republican Party is moving too far to the right and the Democratic Party too far to the left.

Apparently, Trump thinks it is in McConnell's power (and job description) to protect him from the Russian Federation probe.

Trump was not supportive of sanctions Congress overwhelmingly passed against Russian Federation earlier this summer, even though he did sign them into law.He has publicly attacked McConnell, suggesting he should step down as leader and blaming him for the failure of health care legislation.

A rump GOP caucus in Congress.

Trump appears to have support in high places among Republicans for including border wall funding in an anticipated stopgap spending measure, including from House Speaker Paul D. Ryan.

The White House tried to downplay any sense of tension between the president and Senate Republican leader Wednesday night.

Beyond the party leadership, the U.S. president has publicly attacked a string of Republican lawmakers - including Senators John McCain, Jeff Flake, Lindsey Graham, Dean Heller, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski - at the risk of weakening his chances of driving legislation through Congress.
