How Lawmakers Are Responding To President Trump

Tony Fabrizio, a GOP strategist who worked for President Trump's 2016 campaign, tweeted out a poll Wednesday arguing Donald Trump's invincibility in the 2020 election - but the data he was showcasing told a different story. "I don't think anyone is interested in having a shutdown". 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.

Billionaire Robert Mercer, one of Trump's top donors, recently cut a $300,000 check for Ward (he gave her twice that much last cycle).

Unless Congress approves a new funding bill, the government will shut down on October 1. If Trump demands a concrete wall, it is hard to see Democrats agreeing to it or Republicans going to bat for it.

"Trump has been known to see a senator on TV or think about an issue and immediately ask White House assistant Madeleine Westerhout to dial the senator", the report reads.

My only hope is that there are enough of them to save us from Trump.

The "us" against "them" strategy targets Senate Republicans like Jeff Flake and John McCain.

"Senators clearly are more visible elected officials, and nearly all of them have more heterogeneous constituencies than House members". All superb ways to encourage support from a thin GOP Senate majority.

"If we have to close down our government, we're building the wall", Trump said to the cheering crowd in Phoenix.

At face value, the fact that the Republican president and the Republican leader in the Senate engaged in "a profane shouting match" is itself a dramatic development, to the extent that intra-party warfare may affect GOP policymakers' ability to govern in the Trump era.

Collins, who said she wrote in House Speaker Paul Ryan in the previous election, joined the hoards of leftists and establishment Republicans in criticizing Trump's response to the situation earlier this month in Charlottesville.

"I requested that Mitch M & Paul R tie the Debt Ceiling legislation into the popular V.A. Bill (which just passed) for easy approval", he tweeted. "We've got to deliver". Over the phone, the two engaged in a profane shouting match, as Mr. Trump, fearful of the F.B.I.'s investigation of his administration's possible ties to Russian Federation, accused Mr. McConnell of failing to protect him.

Count me in the camp of those who believe the president is an ill-tempered, unqualified and at times risky leader of the free world.

The relationship between President Trump and Senator Mitch McConnell, the majority leader, has disintegrated to the point that they have not spoken to each other in weeks, and Mr. McConnell has privately expressed uncertainty that Mr. Trump will be able to salvage his administration after a series of summer crises.

More people are arming themselves and embracing extreme views, according to Vance.

I'm a modern-day Bull Moose Republican who along with millions of other center-right voters struggle to find a home in the small tent of today's Republican Party.
