WATCH: RNC chair blames Democrats and ‘the failing Obama president’ for GOP’s disastrous governing
Despite controlling the entire federal government, the Republican Party has so far completely failed to pass any major pieces of legislation that were part of President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign.
Appearing on CNN Monday, RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said that the GOP shouldn’t at all be blamed for its failure to govern, and said that all blame for the party’s failures should be laid at the feet of the Democrats.
“I blame the democrats for putting Obamacare in place and I blame democrats who aren’t working with us on anything,” she said when asked by CNN’s Wolf Blitzer of Trump or the Republican Senate bore the most responsibility for the party’s failures.
Blitzer wouldn’t let her off the hook, however, and noted that the GOP had failed to pass anything on health care, taxes, or infrastructure repair, despite the fact that the party has the White House, as well as majorities in the House and the Senate.
McDaniel insisted that President Trump is laser focused on helping out Americans who were hurt by “the failing Obama president,” whom she talked about as though he were still in the Oval Office.
“Republicans are trying hard,” she said in a message to Democrats. “Please help.”
