According to an examination into the day-to-day activities at the Trump White House, the New York Times revealed that the President has been on the receiving end of sharp words with Republicans senators unhappy with President Donald Trump's abrupt ways.
The report states that Trump has had difficulty adapting to the fact that he is not the only voice in the room, leading to confrontations with lawmakers who also expect to be heard and not be bossed around.
According to the report, Trump is reportedly an admirer of anecdotes about Brooklyn fixer Meade Esposito who is rumored to have kept a baseball bat under his desk to get people's attention. A source notes that Trump expected meeting with congressional leaders to be more like his days swinging real estate deals in Trump Tower where he once held court.
The source notes that Trump has dialed back his big personality as he has settled into being president, but that wasn't always in the case.
According to one Republican who witnessed the exchange, Trump once snapped commands at Sen. Bob Corker only to have the Tennessee Republican fire back, “I don’t work for you, Mr. President.”
During a presentation at the White House on the GOP-led Senate's health care proposal to replace Obamacare, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell grew angry with president's interruptions and warned him, "Don’t interrupt me.”
