House Republican leader warns Trump against infrastructure deal with Democrats

Published

The Republican Minority Whip in the House seems to be warning President Donald Trump against an infrastructure package.

According to Politico reporter Melanie Zanona, Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) said that the Republican members in the House don’t have a taste for any landmark legislation that might be an addition to the deficit.

“Minority Whip Steve Scalise says he does NOT think there is an appetite in the GOP for a $2 trillion infrastructure bill,” Zanona tweeted Monday.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) are scheduled to meet with Trump Tuesday. While an agenda for the meeting has not been set, the group is expected to discuss a bipartisan deal on a huge infrastructure package that Trump promised during the 2016 campaign.

The president reportedly hates the plan that his own administration came up with. He could find a partnership with Democrats, but it may alienate members of Trump’s party.

The legislation would be the biggest test yet of Trump’s power over the Republican Party.

Bush as a lovable oddball and Jon Lovitz portrayed Democratic candidate Michael Dukakis as an emotionally detached technocrat, musing out loud during a debate, "I can't believe I'm losing to this guy."

Even though it was a comedy sketch, that line has been thrown in Democrats' faces ever since as an example of their arrogant elitism and failure to understand Real America. Don't you know that the average voter wants a president they can have a beer with, not some egghead know-it-all?

Trump preparing to question legitimacy of results if he loses 2020 election: Michigan lieutenant governor

Lt. Gov. Garlin Gilchrist, D-Mich., has accused President Donald Trump of sowing doubt about November's election months before voting even begins in an attempt to question the "legitimacy of an election that he is looking to lose."

Gilchrist criticized Trump for pushing debunked conspiracy theories about voting by mail after the state sent absentee ballot applications to every registered voter amid the coronavirus pandemic.

"I think that the president wants to set us up so that there can be a conversation about the legitimacy of an election that he is looking to lose," Gilchrist told MSNBC over the weekend. "That is a really unfortunate thing. That's not how we do democracy here in the United States, and we need to be ready to respond to that forcefully."
