We’ve already seen how some media figures reacted to President Trump‘s new spending deal online, but let’s take a look at the other side of the Twitterverse.
On Wednesday, the news came out about how Trump made a deal with Senate and House Minority Leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi in order to raise the debt ceiling and deliver federal aid to the victims of Hurricane Harvey. This development came as a surprise to some due to Trump’s rough relationship with Democrats, though others thought the president was looking for a way to move ahead regardless of political ideology.
In any event, many of the president’s loyal supporters are still behind him, and they took to Twitter to say as much:
I Get It:
The Pelosi-Schumer-Trump deal is President Trump putting pressure on Republicans to pass laws!#WednesdayWisdom

By showing Republicans he can work with Democrats, Trump forces Republicans to unite or become irrelevant. He just changed the game.

By and large, it would seem Trump diehards are still relatively in favor of what the president is doing. Outside of Trumpworld though, #NeverTrump people and more-traditional conservatives seem to have a more broad opinion about the whole thing.

Only a master negotiator could persuade Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi to raise the federal debt.

When Beohner cut a deal with Obama on the debt ceiling, conservatives tossed him. Trump cut one with Pelosi and it’s Paul Ryan’s fault? WTF?

I’m just curious about what the GOPe’s plan for victory on the debt ceiling was.
Their track record is so good that I’m sure it was awesome.
