`This hateful man': "Danforth calls on Republicans to `disassociate" themselves from Trump

  • Trump’s wall threatens Mexican environmental progress

"We haven't done it; it's time for Congress to act", he said, voicing his support for a government shutdown if money for the wall isn't added to the next funding bill.

Trump's tactics don't line up with the conventional presidential strategy of avoiding government shutdowns - or at least sidestepping blame.

The two calls underscore Trump's increasing frustration with Congressional Republicans over their continued efforts to keep the Russian Federation probe alive.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway says President Donald Trump will keep fighting for his promised border wall, after the president threatened a government shutdown over the issue. After that, Congress would have to give permission for the government to borrow more money to meet its obligations.

So, what is Trump up to?

"I don't think it's smart politically and I don't think it would succeed practically".

". Our country needs a responsibly conservative party". By courting a shutdown, Trump can be a champion of both principles.

"If there is a protracted shutdown, on the other hand, independents and moderate Republicans might blame him".

Sanders was also asked about comments made last week by Sen.

The latest tweets from the president came a day after Trump and McConnell pledged to work together, even as there reportedly is tension between them.

Rather than becoming the goat who ate the Republican Party, Cruz solidified his position as a hero to many grassroots GOP voters.

"If I was advising Donald Trump, I would say that a Democratic takeover is probably the worst single thing that could happen to your presidency in the next year", Andrew says. He would be showing weakness; and that is neither Trump's strength nor a way to please his base.

"There is zero chance - no chance - we don't raise the debt ceiling", he said.

But one essential truth remains: most Americans don't want the wall. And I thought the core takeaway that I had from talking to him was that the fate of congressional Republicans and their majorities is just so closely linked to Trump's own political fate that it's really hard to see what they can do to hurt him that won't hurt themselves politically more and first, because they are up for reelection before he is.

That would hold everyone else in the country hostage for a while - maybe a long while - but it would prevent Trump from disappointing his base by funding every government function other than the very the symbol of their anti-illegal-immigrant fervor.

Travone describes himself on Twitter as a YouTube actor, political junkie and "Proud Trump supporter". He is standing with his base.

Danforth, who was in the Senate for nearly 20 years from the mid-1970s through the mid-90s, has functioned since then as a political mentor to other Missouri Republicans and often an unofficial but influential voice of the party.

Beyond the party leadership, the United States president has publicly attacked a string of Republican lawmakers - including senators John McCain, Jeff Flake, Dean Heller and Lisa Murkowski - at the risk of weakening his chances of driving legislation through Congress.
