Trump in Government Shutdown Drama
100 days in and President Donald Trump is on track to become the only president ever elected without a single legislative victory.
That is correct. Donald Trump, with all his bluster is now the most ineffective president ever.
But you wouldn’t know it by reading his Twitter rants. He is trying to blackmail Democrats into supporting his idiotic plans.
The Republican president took to Twitter on Sunday to warn Democrats that the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare, could soon lose essential funding without Democratic support for a congressional spending plan to keep the government running.
Should talks fail, the government would shut down on Saturday, Trump’s 100th day in office. Trump, whose national approval rating hovered around 43 percent in the latest Reuters/Ipsos polling, is seeking his first big legislative victory.
“Obamacare is in serious trouble. The Dems need big money to keep it going – otherwise it dies far sooner than anyone would have thought,” Trump said in a Twitter post.
The healthcare law was former Democratic President Barack Obama’s signature domestic policy achievement, which Republicans are trying to repeal and replace.
The White House says it has offered to include $7 billion in Obamacare subsidies that allow low-income people to pay for health insurance in exchange for Democratic backing for $1.5 billion in funding to start construction of the barrier on the U.S.-Mexico border. Read More.
