Trump faces mounting pressure from within his party as crisis swirls around the White House

AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE
17 FEB 2017 AT 09:26 ET

Donald Trump and his White House have come in for intense criticism in the president’s dizzying first weeks in office, and the rising sound of discord is not just coming from opposition Democrats.

Republicans on Capitol Hill and outside the Washington Beltway are increasingly venting their frustration and worry — sometimes publicly but more often among themselves — about the new administration’s missteps, speedy policy rollouts, abrasive tone and often tenuous relation to facts.

“We shouldn’t be having these questions now” in the first month of a new presidency, said a Republican senator who requested anonymity so he could discuss the issue more freely. “We are concerned.”

In a dozen AFP interviews, lawmakers, party grandees and congressional staff have painted a picture of an administration struggling to get up to speed on various fronts, trampling on White House protocol, and acting hastily instead of with deliberation and prudence as they pivot away from the policies of Trump’s predecessor Barack Obama.

5. The only think republicans are concerned about is

if their names come out connecting them to Russia/Trump, and/or they can get enough of their insane agenda signed into law before Trump is ousted, however the ousting happens.
