According to Sarah Huckabee Sanders Trump doesn’t care if GOP Republicans are upset about it.
PresidentÂ TrumpÂ is not concerned that he angered some Capitol Hill Republicans by striking a deal withÂ DemocratsÂ to quickly pass emergency disaster relief, the White House said Friday, saying it was more important to break the gridlock inÂ Congress.
â€œThe biggest message is we are a lot less focused on what makesÂ CongressÂ happy and [instead on] what makes Americans better and stronger,â€ said White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. â€œHeâ€™s going to continue working with whoever is interested in moving the ball forward to help the American people.â€
Mr. TrumpÂ blindsided Republican leaders and riled conservative lawmakers with the deal that tied a short-term increase in the debt limit and spending to keep the government open until mid-December with the emergency disaster relief.
Mrs. Sanders said the deal-making was one of the reason voters sentÂ Mr. TrumpÂ to the White House.
â€œThe presidentâ€™s focus was doing what is best for the American people. And thatâ€™s why heâ€™s the president,â€ she said. â€œPeople wanted somebody to be a leader. They wanted someone who was going to step up and take action, and thatâ€™s exactly what the president did.â€
This is about as Trump as it gets. He basically flipped the GOP the bird by working with the Democrats and Trump clearlyÂ cares little about it. This is just more evidence showcasing that Trumpis escalating his war on the Republican Establishment. Yesterday we reported that Bannon is secretlyÂ plotting the removal of Paul Ryan as speaker of the house from outside the administration.
