The reason for the plan negotiated between the Republicans and Democrats is that we need 60 votes in the Senate which are not there! We....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 2, 2017
Gee, who pissed in his corn flakes?either elect more Republican Senators in 2018 or change the rules now to 51%. Our country needs a good "shutdown" in September to fix mess!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 2, 2017
Oh here we go, courtesy of McClatchy:
Democrats are elated over the $1.07 trillion budget deal, which reads almost like an Obama administration blueprint.
“Early on in this debate, Democrats clearly laid out our principles,” said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. “At the end of the day, this is an agreement that reflects those principles.”
Gone is money for President Donald Trump’s border wall or efforts to deny Obamacare subsidies. There’s billions more for non-defense spending, and no changes to President Barack Obama’s Cuba policy.
“It’s no different than if Hillary was elected; it’s a huge loss, and I’m livid. Paul Ryan’s House is a not conservative House,” said tea party Republican Art Halvorson, who nearly defeated Rep. Bill Shuster, R-Pa., in the 2016 primary with 49.4 percent of the vote.
I think Trump is learning the hard way that the job of president is not for stubby fingered man babies.
Still somebody should probably tell Tangerine Hitler that presidents as a rule do NOT call for, nor support, government shutdowns.
After all they ARE the fucking government.
Update: By the way Mitch McConnell just shot down any idea of ending the filibuster:
"There is an overwhelming majority on a bipartisan basis that is not interested in changing the way the Senate operates on the legislative calendar," Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters.
Damn it is just not Donald Trump's day today is it?
