House Republican leader warns Trump against infrastructure deal with Democrats

Published

on

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.

"We elected everybody," said Trump. "The governor got brought up, in a few short days, 19 points. I went, we made a speech, the whole ticket was there, everybody won big. Governor's a really good guy. But 19 points is a big thing, and he lost by just a few thousand votes. And the headlines next day, Trump took a loss — I lifted him up a lot. But Trump took a loss. So you gotta give me a big win, please, okay? Okay?"

Published

Jurors deciding the fate of longtime Donald Trump political advisor Roger Stone did not reach a verdict during their deliberations on Thursday and will reconvene on Friday morning.

But there were fascinating details from the courtroom revealed by NBC News correspondent Ken Dilanian.

"What about Roger Stone, does he look like he’s about to burn here?" MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews asked. "Does he look like he’s going down?"

"He does," Dilanian replied.

"And also, physically, he doesn't look well at this trial. He’s walking around the courthouse kind of unaccompanied, shambling around," he continued. "He doesn't look like a happy warrior, which is usually his persona."
