With friends like these: Trump struggles to win GOP

WASHINGTON (AP) — Congressional Republicans have a lot to say about their new president.

Donald Trump‘s proposed budget is “draconian, careless and counterproductive.” The health care plan is a bailout that won’t pass. And his administration’s suggestion that former President Barack Obama used London’s spy agency for surveillance is simply “inexplicable.”

With friends like these, who needs Democrats?

Less than two months in, Republicans have emerged as one of the biggest obstacles to Trump’s young administration, imperiling his early efforts to pass his agenda and make good on some of his biggest campaign promises.

Trump’s embrace of a House GOP plan to overhaul the country’s health system faces deep opposition from across the party, as does his push to get U.S. taxpayers to pay for a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. Republicans largely rejected his thin…

    THIS IS ALL AN ACT AND NEITHER REPUBLICANS NOR DEMOCRATS GIVE A DAMN. AS AN AMERICAN, I REFUSE TO HAVE ANY CONFIDENCE OR TRUST IN ANYTHING THEY SAY OR DO. THEY ARE ALL ACTORS AND ACTRESSES TO ME, AND FAR SUPERIOR THAN ANY OF THEM IN HOLLYWOOD, MAKES ME WONDER WHO SHOULD RECEIVE THE OSCARS THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY OR THE POLITICAL WORLD. THEY ARE ALL OBSTACLES UNTO THEMSELVES AND DESERVE EACH OTHER.

    • I heard a New Zealand commentator on the radio commenting on Trump’s upcoming visit to China. He basically said Trump has to visit China (rather than starting a war against them) because in the eyes of the world China has surpassed the US economically, politically and diplomatically. At least that’s the view outside the US – that Trump’s election is merely symptomatic of America’s plummeting status.

  2. My tomatoes are from Mexico, or so it says in the grocery store. So, will I still have access to tomatoes from Mexico once ‘The Wall’ is built? In the summer, it does not matter because I can go to the Farmer’s Market, but offseason? Hey Trump! I wanna know! LOL!

    But seriously, this douchebag is certainly going to disappoint his base in one way or another because if he succeeds in replacing ObamaCare with some more even whacked mess, his base are the ones who are going to suffer especially when those Meals-on-Wheels don’t show up and let me tellya, there are plenty of older Americans counting on those meals and if he is planning on taxing us to pay for ‘The Wall’, his base is going to suffer because that money is going to come from a cut in social programs and most certainly not in military spending leaving Trump’s supporters in the dust!

  3. The other thing they talked about on this radio program was the wall. They interviewed a sheriff from southern Arizona who said it’s literally impossible to build a wall the entire length of the Mexican border because much of it is mountainous and/or belongs to sovereign indigenous nations. There’s no way in hell they’re going to agree to Trump building a wall across their land.

    • Well, Dr. Bramhall, it wouldn’t matter anyway if a wall was built because there are so many tunnels from Mexico into the United States and who don’t know this is dead and planted. Surely Trump is not so stupid that he doesn’t know about the tunnels underneath the states that border Mexico. Surely! Building a wall would be redundant, to say the least.
