There isn't even a bill published for health treatment, and while conservatives such as the draft language that's circulating, moderates really don't. It's the same trouble Republicans have had from the beginning appeal to conservatives, shed the moderates; charm to moderates, shed the conservatives. It truly is like a water balloon irrespective of which conclude you force on, it however pops. "If it happens, and we have the votes this week, excellent," White House pre s secretary Sean Spicer informed reporters Monday. "If it is subsequent week, or perhaps the 7 days after--." Or... About the border wall, President Trump appears to get dropping his funding calls for (for now) and punting to this drop. That is what he advised conservative media retailers in a very personal reception for the White Residence Monday night time irrespective of his tweeting about its great importance that early morning: The Wall is actually a very critical tool in stopping drugs from pouring into our country and poisoning our youth (and lots of many others)! If Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 24, 2017 Then, he tweeted Tuesday morning that he has not adjusted his situation over the wall which "it can get developed." Will not enable the pretend media show you that i have improved my posture around the WALL. It's going to get crafted and aid quit medicine, human trafficking and so forth. Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 25, 2017 Importantly, he did not say when, even though. PoliticsWith Shutdown Looming, Trump Is Tweeting Out Requires. Will He Stick By Them? The underside line is that this: Republicans have until finally Friday midnight to fund the federal government and maintain the lights on. That occurs to coincide with Trump's a hundredth working day in busine s office, and that is Saturday.PoliticsPresident Trump's Tweets, Annotated Rational GOP leaders choose to stay clear of a govt shutdown at all costs. And make no error: when there is a person, Republicans might be blamed, it doesn't matter the spin. When shutdowns have happened from the the latest earlier, it's been when there is certainly divided government. That is not your situation now. Republicans are in command of the house, the Senate and the White House. They individual it. Trump is even hyping that he will unveil a tax system Wednesday (though early indicators point out there may po sibly not be substantially new within the currently unveiled through the campaign). And he's conversing difficult on trade yet again, now with... Canada. In that same meeting with conservative media shops, Trump also floated the thought of a 20 p.c tariff on Canadian lumber, a long-running difficulty, specifically in the Pacific Northwest. And afterwards he picked yet another combat with Canada Tuesday morning this time about milk. Canada has manufactured busine s enterprise for our dairy farmers in Wisconsin together with other border states quite tricky. We're going to not stand for this. Check out! Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April twenty five, 2017 The Canadians weren't going to the woodshed lying down. .@Canada disagrees strongly with @CommerceGov's determination to impose unfair & punitive duties on Cdn softwood products Natural Resources (@NRCan) April 25, 2017The Two-WayTrump Administration To Impose 20 Percent Tariff On Canadian Lumber OK, "disagrees strongly" is really a pretty polite smackdown, but, hey, it really is Canada. So what is Trump doing with all this drama? In the word: ratings. "It's almost like it's scores 7 days on the White Property," Rick Tyler, the former Ted Cruz and Newt Gingrich spokesman, said Tuesday on MSNBC's Morning Joe. Donald Trump is obse sed with scores. He's tweeted about "ratings " 79 times since he launched his presidential run in June 2015. He wants to make sure he has the highest-rated 100 days ever (or at least since FDR). Even neverthele s he is been downplaying the 100-day artifice recently, he's also hyped it here, here, on video here, in an infographic here, even boasting two months ago that he's "done more than anybody." The White Household even launched a website devoted to it Tuesday. "[I]t's interesting, I have, seem to get really high ratings," Trump told the AP in the wide-ranging interview late last 7 days. The question was about how he gets along with Democrats and how people vote. He went on..."I definitely --, you know, [Fox News Sunday host] Chris Wallace experienced 9.2 million people, it is the highest during the history from the show. I have all the ratings for all those early morning shows. When I go, they go double, triple. Chris Wallace, look back throughout the Army-Navy football game, I did his show that early morning. It experienced 9.2 million people. It can be the highest they've ever experienced. On any, on air, [CBS 'Face the Nation' host John] Dickerson had 5.2 million people. It really is the highest for 'Face the Nation' or as I call it, 'Deface the Nation.'"And then he said this:"It's the highest for 'Deface the Nation' since the World Trade Center. Since the World Trade Center came down. It really is a tremendous advantage."There's become a rule in politics you should not compare to Nazis. Well, never compare to 9/11 is most likely a good a single to add. There have been other examples recently of Trump's rankings obse sion. When someone wondered aloud in Trump's presence last month if Spicer could po sibly be fired, the Washington Publish reported his answer was "swift and unequivocal": "I'm not firing Sean Spicer," he said, "that guy gets terrific ratings. Everyone tunes in." Everyone tunes in. For almost two years, everyone has tuned in. TV scores and Web traffic were through the roof. Trump got more free media than any candidate during the presidential marketing campaign for good or ill. Good news is Melania's speech got more publicity than any during the history of politics especially if you believe that all push is good pre s! Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 20, 2016 It is really a le son he learned from the New York media market the only bad publicity is no publicity in any way. That could work from the branding, reality-TV and tabloid world Trump comes from, but it really is an odd way to think which is how governing works. It really is by now being tested with limited results, so far, for this president.
