Former GOP senator: Trump has 'corrupted' Republican Party

Former GOP senator: Trump has 'corrupted' Republican Party”

Six in 10 people in a recent CBS News poll opposed building the wall; 85% said that the United States - and not Mexico as Trump has promised - would ultimately pay for it.Trump's disapproval rating is hovering right around 60% - at or near record highs for this time in a president's term.

Trump, who at the time was not in political office, lashed out at Republicans on Twitter. Further, it's unclear whether the rule change would help Trump pass health care legislation, as the last bill to fail was not subject to the 60-vote standard.

Meanwhile, Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn said Wednesday that he viewed Trump's threat as him "laying down the tough line", i.e., a negotiation tactic.

The U.S. Treasury is due to hit the debt ceiling at some point in October, and a failure to raise it to pay the government's bills could spur financial chaos.

But Trump said on Monday the hurricane recovery effort had not caused him to reconsider the option of a government shutdown. They also say that Congress shouldn't bend to Trump's request to fund construction of a border wall as a precondition for keeping the government open. But hard-core conservative Republicans in Congress could block raising the ceiling by insisting such legislation include big cuts in federal spending.

On CNN's "New Day" Friday, host Alisyn Camerota quoted Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto telling Trump in a phone call, "Mexico can not pay for that wall".

As Trump flounders through his presidency, he sees appealing to his base as a way to gain affirmation.

With the chaos president in White House, it's unlikely Republicans will be able to restore order within their own party anytime soon. "They're not following my agenda".

Flake has drawn the ire of the president over his hesitance to support a border wall between the USA and Mexico, much of which would be in Arizona. Ted Cruz's demands over defunding Obamacare - looked to, again, be a huge problem for congressional Republicans. Exceptions could encompass those who serve honorably in the US military for a specified period and others who have made substantial contributions to America as determined by immigration authorities.

Capitol Hill Republican leaders have said a government shutdown won't happen.

A CBS News poll earlier this month found that 61 percent of Americans oppose Trump's proposal for a Mexican border wall.

Both the spending and debt ceiling bills could pass the Republican-led House by a simple majority vote, but will need 60 votes to pass the Senate, where Republicans hold 52 of 100 seats, meaning they will need some Democratic support. But that plan may run into a wall of opposition in Congress.

Republicans now hold 52 seats in the Senate.

Congressional Democrats are holding their ground in opposing Trump's proposal. "He can veto a bill without it, but then he'd be responsible for the shutdown".
