Trump and McConnell Got Into 'Profane Shouting Match' Over the Phone

"Obamacare is a disaster and think - think!"
A reference to the Senate being "one vote away" appeared to be a veiled shot at Sen. Republicans in Congress can not enact legislation without Trump's signature - or support from Democrats. But Trump seems to have the opposite goal.
Raising the debt limit does not authorize new spending commitments. There is bipartisan opposition to doing so in the Senate. Subjects included everything from the expected - "fake news media" and this summer's health care failure - to the unexpected.
But instead of pushing those issues Tuesday night, where there is agreement within the party, Trump again sold a campaign promise with limited support among Republicans in Congress - building a wall along the Southern border, going so far as to suggest shutting down the government if funding for the project isn't approved. "And if we don't, the Republicans will never get anything passed", Trump said.
He cited support for infrastructure legislation and tax reform, as well as preventing a government default, passing defence bills and implementing an effective strategy against Islamic State. "I have nothing against the guy other than right now I think they need to be at work instead of out vacationing".
A White House official also toldCNN earlier this month that Trump and McConnell had an animated conversation about health care after McConnell said Trump had "excessive expectations" about quick passage of an Obamacare repeal. CNN has confirmed that the two men have not spoken since a tense August 9 phone call.
Trump's tweets are only alienating his allies in Congress, a former Senate Republican leadership aide said.
Minutes after Trump fired off the two tweets, McConnell praised the President at a Kentucky Farm Bureau breakfast in his home state for rolling back Obama-era regulations and the selection of Neil Gorsuch as Supreme Court Justice. At least 78 Democrats have signed on as co-sponsors.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California said Thursday that with Republicans controlling both chambers of Congress and the White House, the party needs to develop a plan to deal with the debt ceiling. Pelosi reiterated that opposition Wednesday.
The rally, which began just hours after the Times published its story highlighting the Trump-McConnell rift, served as something of a public therapy session for the president, who spent more than an hour ranting and raving at his critics.
Raising the debt ceiling is one of the must-pass measures Congress will take up when it returns on September 5.
Republicans are increasingly candid about their apprehension about what is to come this fall.
