President Trump said Thursday he asked GOP leaders in Congress to tie legislation raising the debt ceiling to a Veterans Affairs bill and that their failure has led to a political mess surrounding the issues.
"The question is whether the public believes that Donald Trump is the Republican Party, and he's not..." Despite the many warnings by their own commentators - including some pro-Republican analysts - Americans voted Trump into the White House and waited to see him perform in his elected office. Increasingly, however, people are beginning to realise that Trump, personally, never had "policies" in the sense of systematic ideas for governing a giant state and economy, let alone navigating complex global geo-politics. They want to accomplish a different agenda, an agenda that includes, as the WSJ helpfully notes, "lifting the debt ceiling, funding the government, and passing a budget outline that sets the stage for tax reform".
FDR was generally unsuccessful, which meant that the conservative southern Democrats who he actively campaigned against by supporting their primary opponents were back in 1939 and, teaming up with Republicans, formed a conservative coalition that blocked progress on much of his domestic agenda.
Action is needed to raise the debt ceiling by September 29, the administration has warned, although some fiscal experts say the deadline may actually be mid-October.
If Trump were unwilling to shut down the government to get the wall, he'd be demonstrating to his voters that he doesn't have the grit or determination to go all the way for their shared top legislative priority.
"I'm not anxious that's not going to get done because it's going to get done", Ryan said during an appearance in Washington state.
The latest Twitter outburst from the president comes as divisions deepen between Trump and McConnell. "Certainly there are going to be some policy differences, but there are also a lot of shared goals and that's what we're focused on".
"I'm grateful to you for that, as an American", Bevin said. "I don't think a government shutdown is necessary, and I don't think most people want to see a government shutdown, ourselves included", Paul Ryan, the Speaker of the House, said, earlier this week, in Oregon.
For all of that conciliatory talk, the evidence of mounting friction between the president and the Republican Party is growing. Bob Corker's comments that he has failed to demonstrate the "stability" or "competence" needed as president are "strange".

Out of the 78 crore phones in India , he said , 50 crore are feature phones that can not be used for Internet or data usage. Mukesh Ambani ( Reliance Industries Chairman) addressed the company's 40th annual general meeting (AGM) today on July 21.
Corker hasn't said yet whether he'll seek re-election in 2018.
Trump this week also went after two other prominent Republican senators, Jeff Flake and John McCain.
The idea that Corker is "constantly asking" Trump anything is nearly impossible to believe, because it's not like they're in daily communication and Corker is by all appearances possessed of some degree of dignity.
