Another Remarkable POTUS Utterance
“We had no Democratic support. They weren’t going to give us a single vote.” — President Donald J. Trump.
Indeed: when one tries to repeal a major piece of Democratic legislation, and one’s party does so without any attempt to negotiate before the vote, one tends not to get Democratic votes.
Further, when the Republicans are having their own internal struggles, don’t look for the Democrats to jump to their aid out of the kindness of their hearts at the 11th hour.
I recognize that Trump is trying to deflect blame, but in the annals of dumb things politicians have said about the legislative process, this one ranks high in the level of utter ridiculousness.
