GOP gets bolder in breaking with Trump | TheHill


Congressional Republicans are becoming more critical of President Trump amid the shaky rollout of his executive order on immigration and the lack of clear progress on his legislative agenda.

The rising tensions between both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue come at a critical time in the Trump presidency, when major decisions on taxes, healthcare and the budget need to be made.

Trump’s criticism of a Republican-appointed federal judge and his praise of Russian President Vladimir Putin over the weekend have rubbed some Republicans the wrong way. Those members, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), have sought to put some daylight between the policies and priorities of the GOP-led Congress and the new administration.

  1. ‘McConnell objected to that comparison during an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” calling Putin “a thug” and arguing there isn’t “any equivalency between the way the Russians conduct themselves and the way the United States does.”’

    Well, maybe, not at the current time, but give Trump time and there will be as Trump believes that the President is above the law and that his word or Executive Order is the Law and if it is not he will change it.

    Trump wants Supreme power, America be very carefull.
