Trump also assailed conservative House speaker Paul Ryan, claiming he and McConnell were responsible for the debt ceiling "mess". Ted Cruz was its conservative purist. Without Mitch McConnell, Trump is toast. The piece centered on growing friction between President Donald Trump and McConnell.
"Right now, it is his party", said Peter Wehner, who has served in the last three Republican presidential administrations. As for Signer, he has enjoyed close ties to Obama, McAuliffe, John Edwards, Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine, a rogue's gallery of political villains if I've ever seen one. "There will be an enormous cost".
The vast majority of Republican voters are distinctly dry-eyed.
Democrats have been talking about using the debt ceiling as a lever against Republican tax reform since June and laid out their conditions for working together on tax legislation in an August 1 letter to Trump and Republican leaders.
In the latest in a stream of criticisms that could undermine his aims to cut taxes, pass a budget and rebuild infrastructure, Trump sought to blame party leaders if Congress fails to agree to raise the cap on how much the federal government may borrow.
President Donald Trump picked a new fight on Thursday with his fellow Republicans, saying congressional leaders could have avoided a "mess" over raising the USA debt ceiling if they had taken his advice.
"He got a lot of flak for saying he could kill someone on Fifth Avenue". No one likes the Republican or Democratic leadership.
Asked about the debt ceiling, Sanders put the onus on Congress to resolve the matter: "It's our job to inform Congress of the debt ceiling and it's their job to raise it". "It's kind of like, what is it going to take for these guys?" But now that he has someone in the White House who would actually sign the bills that Congress passes, he has shown himself to be no more formidable than a palace eunuch. When Republican politicians see his low approval ratings and try to distance themselves from him, he won't do what previous presidents, both Republican and Democrat, have done in the same situation - gritted their teeth and accepted it as a manifestation of the primacy of self-interest for every politician - but instead will strike out angrily at them.
Investigations would intensify into the Trump campaign's links to Russian Federation, the Trump family's business and political conflicts of interest and the President's brazen conduct.

A biographer says Donald Trump once told him that he informed second wife Marla Maples he was seeking a divorce by leaking it to the New York Post.
Yet Trump's muddled response to a deadly white supremacist rally has emboldened his critics to talk about the once unthinkable. Mnuchin and other top administration officials, meanwhile, have ratcheted back their promises for tax legislation, perhaps the most important Trump initiative for financial markets. It really is about fear - because he could do so much to wreck their party's chances in 2018 and ruin their own political futures.
Maine Sen. Susan Collins, a Republican who has been critical of the president, told MSNBC this week it was "too hard to say" if Trump would be the party's presidential nominee in 2020. "Condemning violence is not a Republican or Democratic issue". Why would McConnell run through a wall for a president who last week tweeted about him: "Can you believe that Mitch McConnell, who has screamed Repeal & Replace for 7 years, couldn't get it done".
