The Trump-McConnell Spat

President Donald Trump delivers his first speech to Congress

Meanwhile, Trump needs to keep the support of Republicans, who are the only ones that can confirm conservative judges, pass a giant tax cut and, most important, protect him from not only removal but also more serious inquiries that would explore his conflicts of interest and receipt of foreign money.

President Donald Trump speaks to reporters at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminister, N.J., Thursday, Aug. 10, 2017.

The exchange came less than two weeks after Senate rejection of the GOP effort to scuttle President Barack Obama's health care law, probably McConnell's most jolting defeat as leader and Trump's worst legislative loss. Marijuana foes said the county's new ordinance has attracted a large number of undesirable drug dealers, leading to higher crime and community upheaval.

Mr. McConnell's office referred scheduling questions to the Finance Committee, where Mr. Hatch is chairman.

It's highly unusual for a president to publicly suggest leadership changes in Congress.

Trump elevated Neil Chatterjee, McConnell's longtime energy adviser, to head the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, or FERC, for at least the next few weeks.

"The two Houses of Congress are in a way tribal institutions". Although the Senate has repealed Obama-era regulations and confirmed a Supreme Court justice, it stumbled over Obamacare, has yet to take up any of the immigration crackdown bills that cleared the House and is months overdue on passing a 2018 budget.

The rural county is nestled in the Sierra Nevada foothills about 125 miles (200 kilometers) east of San Francisco.

Dissatisfaction with the process leading up to the GOP's failed attempt at the fake repeal of Obamacare brought together Sens. Dean Heller, R-Nev. Lisa Murkowski on health care, his threat to Nevada Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., a McConnell ally.

Can you believe that Mitch McConnell, who has screamed Repeal & Replace for 7 years, couldn't get it done. The bill would have slashed over $700 billion from Medicaid and kicked more than 20 million people off their insurance.

That Trump tweet - and an earlier one from Wednesday - came after McConnell criticized Trump's "excessive expectations" on health care.

In a later press briefing, he said he was "very disappointed" in McConnell for not following through on years of GOP promises to repeal and replace Obamacare.

"Part of the reason I think that the storyline is that we haven't done much is because, in part, the president and others have set these early timelines about things need [ing] to be done by a certain point", McConnell said on Monday, according to ABC News. Trump has always been about his own wins, so why should he care which congressional party helps deliver what he wants?

"Obviously, there's some frustration", White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said of Trump's tweets.

"He's kind of frustrated, lashing out, saying 'look, let's just get this done' without realizing it's going to be a difficult thing to do", Clayton said. The attacks on McConnell - coming after Trump's repeated attacks on Sen.

"You're on a 17 day vacation telling someone to 'get back to work, '" Twitter users wrote, and "Meanwhile, you are golfing and having lunch today".

California counties and cities have been wrangling with whether to allow recreational pot operations within their borders since voters passed Proposition 64 in November. About 74 million people are insured through Medicaid. So I say, tax cuts, tax reform. He further noted that he hadn't spoken to Manafort "in a long time", but that he always found him "to be a very decent man".

Trump said he was particularly miffed by the Senate failing to repeal the Affordable Care Act by a single vote.

"Now our new president has of course not been in this line of work before".
