Trump Is Attacking The GOP's Top Senator On Twitter And Here's Why

PM-1502221436

"This whole thing is absurd", Gingrich said when asked about Trump's tweets and the tension with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich criticized President Trump on Thursday for lashing out against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).

"Our new president, of course, has not been in this line of work before", McConnell said, according to CNN affiliate WCPO.

Trump has also repeatedly has urged lawmakers to change Senate rules so Republicans would need only 51 votes, instead of 60, to pass most legislation. Cole said not repealing Obamacare was a congressional failure, not a presidential one.

Venezuela's anti-Maduro uprising thwarted
In 2014, Captain Caguaripano released a 12-minute video denouncing the president during a previous wave of anti-government unrest. President Maduro claims the new constituent assembly is meant to bring calm to a country that has seen months of violent unrest.

The New York Times reported Wednesday that Trump had a call with McConnell on Wednesday to express his frustration.

Another thing making the Trump-McConnell spat complicated - McConnell's wife, Elaine Chao, is the president's Secretary of Transportation. Trump followed up this tweet on Thursday, Aug. 10, and again called out McConnell for similar reasons.

They spent the end of July haggling over details, but recessed at the beginning of August when it became clear they did not have a consensus.

The House of Representatives passed its version of Obamacare repeal and replace earlier this year. "I think it would be helpful if the president was a little more on message". He and his Senate Republicans have been utterly uninterested in examining Trump's conflicts of interest and potential violations of the emoluments clause. Nursing a 52-48 majority, McConnell needed support from 50 GOP senators to prevail because of unanimous Democratic opposition, but there were enough Republican "no" votes on each tally to sink the effort.

Four-time Olympic champion Cuthbert dies aged 79
She retired to the privacy and peace of her parent's commercial nursery in Ermington, the western Sydney suburb where she grew up. Having set a new Olympic record in the heats of 11.4 seconds, she claimed gold in the 100m before also taking out the 200m event.

Trump, a political newcomer, as McConnell noted, has a habit of declaring progress on major priorities that do not necessarily reflect the reality of lawmaking.

"The Trump/McConnell war of words has zero upside for the GOP agenda and is potentially limit-down", said Chris Krueger, an analyst at Cowen Washington Research Group.

President Trump responded using his personal Twitter account.

Kayleigh McEnany leaves CNN, hosts Trump's 'real news' report, becomes RNC spokeswoman
More than a few critics compared it to the propaganda disseminated by state-run media outlets; McEnany called it "the real news". Feels eerily like so many state-owned channels I've watched in other countries'.

Trump demanded they stick around through the break and continue working on the bill, even as he made plans to decamp to his property in Bedminster.
