Trump Continues Attacks on McConnell After His 'Excessive Expectations' Remark


However, when reporters asked whether McConnell should resign, Trump only told them to ask should the majority leader fail to get several legislative items passed.

"The fact is, with a very narrow margin, 52 people, Mitch McConnell got 49 out of 52. And that's saying quite a bit".

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Tuesday that the President spoke the previous day with House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, in addition to Tillis. Senator Lindsey Graham, a perpetual Trump critic who this time leaned to the President's defense called it "ridiculous" for McConnell to blame Trump's impatience and inexperience for the public sense that Congress hasn't done much.

But that's not all folks, while the president tweet-ordered Congress to go back to work from his vacation home in New Jersey, he also took the time to keep up his rant while speaking to reporters.

"Senator Mitch McConnell said I had 'excessive expectations, ' but I don't think so", the president tweeted. His "gobsmackingly stupid" indictment of the majority leader continued Thursday morning.

Unsurprisingly, that explanation didn't sit well with the commander in chief, and he took to Twitter on Wednesday to fire back, asking "After 7 years of Repeal & Replace, why not done?" "I think it would be helpful if the president would be a little more on message".

"And the rest? They are phony baloney", Dobbs said, introducing a new slogan: "Ditch Mitch". "There is a cautionary tale there because voters want you to support the president in his agenda", McDaniel said this week.

Third, McConnell has resisted naming a select committee to investigate the Russian Federation scandal.

However, some Republicans faulted Trump for not making a greater push on health care. McConnell could decide at any moment to pursue those lines of inquiry. McConnell did not immediately return a request for comment.

This was evident in the President's endorsement of Sen. A single retirement or defection (anyone certain Lisa Murkowski of Alaska or Susan Collins of ME would never, ever flip parties?) would give Democrats the majority.

Conversely, not all the Senators present in McConnell's speech shared his view.

"Perhaps the surest sign of Congress's decline is that we now need a book-length explanation of what powers the House and Senate actually have", White writes.

Trump has promised to boost energy production and exports as part of a bid to establish "energy dominance" for the United States, but the FERC vacancies have hobbled the agency's ability to make decisions. In Trump's mind, there are no excuses for defying or criticizing him. He is doing neither.
