Chuck Todd: GOP alliances ‘dramatically breaking down’ despite being majority in Congress

Published

on

MSNBC host Chuck Todd addressed the unrest in Reublican-led Congress, as President Donald Trump’s feud with GOP caucus members continues.

“There’s fire in the Republican party right now,” Todd said. “In addition to the Russian cloud bogging down everything, the White House agenda is a mess and party alliances are dramatically breaking down.”

Todd pointed out President Trump’s seeming declaration of war on members of his own party for killing the GOP healthcare plan, “threatening to fight [Republican] hardliners … in the 2018 mid-terms.” Trump singled out three Republican senators in particular, in the following tweet.

Todd noted, “hardliners responded today with open defiance.” He then played a clip of Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) being questioned by reporters about whether Trump’s tweets were “an actual negotiating tactic” and whether it’s constructive.

“I mean, it’s constructive in fifth grade,” Amash replied. And after House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) warned Freedom Caucus conservatives on Thursday to not allow the president to “strike a deal with Democrats,” Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) slammed Ryan on Twitter.

He wrote the following:

“So, some moderate Republicans in the House have now decided to freeze out conservatives,” said Todd.
