Donald Trump Fires Back at Mitch McConnell for 'Excessive Expectations' Comment

His targets have begun to narrow, and the Majority Leader of the Senate is firmly in his crosshairs. "It just doesn't help enact any part of his agenda, and it sends a further troubling sign to Capitol Hill Republicans already wary of the White House".

"And the rest? They are phony baloney", Dobbs said, introducing a new slogan: "Ditch Mitch".

For one, Republicans have never really reached a consensus about upending health care.

Analysts suggest the fight could be damaging to the GOP agenda push.

He also spoke to one of the senators, Republican Thom Tillis of North Carolina, who introduced a bill that could potentially protect special counsel Robert Mueller from being fired by the President, though it was not known whether the bill was addressed during the conversation.
