President Trump Fired Back at Mitch McConnell for Criticizing His 'Excessive Expectations'

Mitch Mc Connell Trump McConnell criticizes Trump's 'excessive expectations'

Trump repeatedly tweeted directions at Republicans -- often contradictory -- that did not seem to influence the internal debates either way.

A McConnell spokesman did not comment on Trump's tweets.

The president's attacks on a leader popular among Senate Republicans comes as lawmakers are poised to try to tackle other shared - but challenging - priorities in the fall, including tax reform, as well as craft a budget and raise the nation's debt ceiling.

Scavino added a link to his tweet of a video of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell speaking at an event in Kentucky on Tuesday - which is what started this all up. "You can do it!" The administration has also been mired in investigations into contacts between his presidential campaign and Russian Federation, and distracted by infighting among high-level White House staff. It has passed bills buttressing veterans' health care and financing the Food and Drug Administration, and the Senate confirmed Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch.

Since 2010, Republicans have vowed to pass a bill to dismantle the Affordable Care Act, former president Barack Obama's signature domestic legislative achievement that has provided health insurance to millions of Americans. They figure, with some reason, that they'll have careers or legacies long after Trump has left the White House.

The remarks came after Trump attacked the Senate majority leader in several statements on Twitter in recent days. But in the absence of that, we're going to be moving on. "This is where we should all be working together, and that clearly is not happening".

McConnell told a group of constituents that Republican senators are not "under-performing" - Trump is assigning them 'artificial deadlines. The White House has said it hopes for votes on tax legislation in both chambers by November.

On Thursday, Trump's main mainstream media ally Fox News joined the president in lashing out at McConnell and congressional Republicans. "Obviously there's some frustration".

"These types of public spats are to be expected, especially given the lack of clear legislative victories and the state of American politics", he said, "but it is admittedly worrisome given that these two men are pivotal in guiding the GOP's legislative agenda".

But Trump couldn't care less about McConnell's stand.

"For every Republican who voted no, there were 16 Democratic senators who voted no", Gingrich said.

The one area McConnell has criticized the president for is his use of Twitter, something he repeated his speech Monday.
