White House may address Trump's frustration with Congress in news briefing

25 August 2017, 01:39 | Melanie Burgess

The White House tried to downplay any sense of tension between the president and Senate Republican leader Wednesday night. The statement also promised the two would hold previously scheduled meetings this month.

"These folks are much more transnational, so the question will be: at what point might they run out of patience if he can't deliver on that policy agenda?"

"Phoenix crowd last night was awesome - a packed house".

Unless Congress approves a new funding bill, the government will shut down on October 1. "But, believe me, if we have to close down our government, we're building that wall". "The obstructionist Democrats would like us not to do it".

But Trump may have to deal with one if he continues to languish.

The House of Representatives has approved a "down payment" of $1.6 billion for a wall while the Senate hasn't committed to such an expenditure.

A lifelong Republican stood up against President Trump before a crowd of Donald Trump's fervent opponents over the weekend.

The failure of Republican officials to condemn their party leader is damning. Trump argued that the legislation was unconstitutional and said it would damage his presidency. "And we have to speak to Mitch and we have to speak to everybody".

Bill Kristol, founder and editor of The Weekly Standard, tweeted: "That Trump's pollsters chose to do this primary poll & release it triumphally when it has the incumbent at a mere 50%, shows near-panic".

Unlike Schatz, however, I don't think it's too soon to fret about long-run consequences - for civilian institutions and military ones - of looking to an unelected officer corps as guarantors of political stability and upholders of national values. "Not one", he told reporters in April, a position that hasn't changed.

That's a huge problem, since Republicans will need Democratic votes to pass a bill to fund the government. Recent events demonstrate even more clearly that President Trump does not have the character, to say nothing of the ability, to govern.

"He's got the best pulpit out there and he understands the importance of messaging", said Billy Piper, former chief of staff to McConnell. "The thought here being if they put their heads down and focus on the work and get something to the president's desk, he'll sign it and everyone can begin to realize the benefits".

Over the past week, Trump has widened an already yawning rift with congressional leaders like top Republican Senator Mitch McConnell - who he attacked once again Thursday, using the bully pulpit of Twitter. 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.

It's somewhat astounding that Trump is so openly protesting these efforts.

"Any time he steps up and tries to equate two groups or two conversations, I think that muddies the water", Lankford said of Trump. Unlike House Speaker Paul D. Ryan, R-Wis., he avoids public apple-polishing for the president.

"Nobody wants me to talk about your other senator, who is weak on borders, weak on crime", Trump said, referencing Flake before a Tuesday rally in Phoenix. Trump called Flake "toxic". I love the Great State of Arizona. "They want the tax cut, for example". He is making his own case.
