Trump ‘does have a tendency to lash out’: Texas Republican tells president to ‘temper’ his rabid impulses

Published

on

Republicans are concerned about President Donald Trump's rabid impulses and are urging self-discipline and constraint, two words that aren't typically associated with the president.

John Cornyn (R-TX). “Because I think Bill Barr is his best path on seeing that justice is done in terms of all of these various investigations, including the counterintelligence investigation and the lead-up to the Mueller report.”
