President Trump signed the 1.2 trillion dollar Omnibus bill today with open frustration over both the process and the product of that bill. Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer heaped praise on Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan and Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for their help in what Pelosi called a great bill for the American worker.
What wasn’t said was how the Republican and Democrat leadership worked together to force POTUS Trump’s hand and create a voter backlash they hope will fracture Mr. Trump’s base of support among millions of Americans.
“How could he sign this bill?” said one Trump supporter on Twitter.
“WTF??? This was the opposite of MAGA,” said another.
“Trump just gave 1.2 trillion to the swamp,” was another comment.
If the above reactions represent the feelings of a majority of Trump supporters it might very well be the first real crisis of support for the President – an outcome that is exactly what Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer were hoping for.
