President Trump criticizes Sen. McConnell again over failed Obamacare repeal
11 Agosto 2017, 12:32 | Bibiana Flor
The Republican White House is attacking the Republican Senate Majority Leader as the pressure of governing is leading Republicans to destroy themselves.
The appointment came as Trump resumed his taunts of McConnell, the Senate's top Republican, expressing disbelief that McConnell couldn't persuade a GOP majority to pass a health care bill.
McConnell has been frustrated by what he considers the president's lack of understanding about the way Congress works before. But his tweet Wednesday was an unusually personal reproach of the 33-year Senate veteran.
GOP senators have talked about moving on to other priorities, but Trump has not relented.
For his part, McConnell's statement was surprising because he is generally among the capital's most guarded politicians. Trump tweeted on Thursday.
Just a day earlier, between raising the specter of nuclear war with North Korea and retweeting "Fox & Friends" news reports about the escalating tensions on the peninsula, the president goaded McConnell over comments he made to a rotary club meeting in Kentucky days earlier.
It's unclear why, in a moment of worldwide crisis, the commander in chief might focus on his own party's failings, but it may have something to do with his alleged obsession with undoing Obama's legacy, much of which is defined by the ACA, his landmark health care legislation.
In an earlier tweet on Wednesday, Dan Scavino Jr., the White House social media director, also took aim at McConnell. He added that while he didn't necessarily think this would create more chaos for the political deliberations, it showed that Trump had been cut out of the deliberation.
Trump mentioned dealing with Congress a few times throughout his 2016 presidential campaign, including saying "you have to get everybody in a room, and you have to get them to agree" at an ABC News debate in New Hampshire in February.
"@SenateMajLdr No Senator, YOU are a WEAK, SPINELESS leader who does not keep his word and you need to Retire!" 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. The failure to pass the legislation was an embarrassment for both Trump and congressional Republicans.
However, some Republicans faulted Trump for not making a greater push on health care.
