Acrimony rises within GOP

The Republican Party is at the brink of breaking out into open warfare with itself after months of straining to keep its internal divisions under control.

After shaking up his own leadership team out of frustration with its performance, Trump is firing warning shots at Capitol Hill and openly criticizing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).

Speaking at a rally in Phoenix Tuesday evening, Trump ramped up pressure on congressional leaders to deliver on one of his top campaign promises: a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

“If we have to close down our government, we’re building that wall,” he told the crowd.

    McConnell for sure needs to be replaced. Ted Cruz would make a great Senate Majority leader and it seems since the inauguration he and Trump have developed a very good working relationship. Louie Gohmert would make a great Speaker of the House. With these two men over the Congress Majorities hopefully they will be able to get a handle on the RINOs and get Trump’s agenda done.

    No too surprising — but unfortunate. It seems that the ‘swamp’ exists on both sides of the aisle. There can be NO DOUBT about what President Trump wants done — he has never tried to hide his programs from his followers. However, these programs apparently don’t fit in with the ‘financial’ backers of the majority of the congress. It’s been obvious for years that “most” elections (and electors) REQUIRE outside financial help. For the first time since JFK a wealthy man, who had not sold his soul BEFORE election, prevailed. He is now attempting to implement the programs he promised. Time will tell how much he can PUSH through — he certainly won’t get much help from the Congress.

      I assume by your pseudo name, Amici Journal, that your are a journalist.

      You have no clue what you’re even saying. You’re obviously repeating only what you’ve heard from your lying lowlife journalist friends.

      The facts have already proven you wrong but you libtards loonie media won’t event look at facts.

      How much is Soros paying you?

      • Amici Journal

        YOU ASSUME, wrong, If I were a LIBERAL why would I have Donated thousands to Cruz. KNOW I knew Trump knew what he stood for, its brainless people such as you that do not think, the haters. The only debate you have is to call one a LIBTARD if they are not LICKING TRUMPS BOOTS. I am a PROUD Republican Conservative Ass WIPE. But after the TRUMP Quagmire I am no longer Proud of the party. It is NOW COUNTRY before any party.

        • Statesman Patriot

          Yep, you are definitely a RINO!
          Same vile nastiness as all libtards.
          You say you were in Cruz’a camp but you claim anything you want online.

          If you really are the proud republican conservative ass wipe, as you claim, then you’d be able to see that Trump is not your typical politician. He is crude and unpolished but that is the kind of political incorrectness we have needed for a long time.

          I truly was a Cruz supporter and I actually helped in his campaign. You most likely say on your fat dumpy libtard lard-butt!

  • Amici Journal

    And this Conservative Rag is just that ANOTHER one of trumps outlets to full the MASSES of his BIG 30% supporters, that is why I am blocking these FAKE CONSERVATIVES>

    When President Trump was running for office I donated hundreds to his campaign. I have been a registered Republican my entire life but since the election of my President much of the Republican party has shown the American people how they are actually Democrats in disguise and are fighting against my President and et they have the unmitigated gall to keep sending me requests for donations. When they start fighting for the people they will receive my support but not until.

  • Larry Lewis

    If I was President, I would be even more on the offense than President Trump. When you cannot trust the members of your party to support you than you should be angry. I am ashamed of the republicans, and especially Flake and McCain among others. These have shown their childishness time and time again and should leave their offices.

  • Free America

    GOP needs a good purge. Most of them have been in DC entirely to long. They are so corrupt they have lost all sense of right and wrong. Why are we paying these people when they do nothing but get in the way of the rule of law and the constitution and the will of the people.

  • annefarrelly

    All these political fights are about power. The more entrenched the politican, the more he or she resists the Trump insurgency. Everything Trump wants to accomplish benefits the people and diminishes the power of the elites. Do we really want our tax dollars spent on sex assignments, illegal criminals, bad teachers, welfare cheats, sanctuary cities, etc? Do we not care who votes in our elections? Do we not want freedom of speech for conservatives? School choice? Lower taxes? Healthcare insurance choice? The elites will fight Trump’s agenda in order to hold on to their power —until the swamp is drained.

  • William Merrell

    while trying to drain the swamp that these dwellers are so used to getting their millions from they are all complaining. Let them complain and start letting the people know how they have become millionaires while keeping two homes and families on a 150K salary. While the average homeowner makes less than 50K and trying to keep their home together.

    GOP…. R.I.N.O. (Republican-In-Name-Only)
    They are now showing their
    true-colors, and several need to go. Starting Top-Down. Thanx to Trump
    for pulling’ their ‘panties’ down.

  • Steven Doyle

    We need to get as many Anti-Trump folks out of office in 2018 as possible It is tough to drain the swamp but we desperately need to do so. I am not donating to the Republican anything but will focus any donations to support the Trump Administration. Ryan, McConnell, and McCain cannot remain as law makers and need to be gone from the Republican Party for starters!
