Chuck Todd examined the “war” between President Trump and his own party this morning in reflecting on the last week in politics.
He brought up the unique situation of a President attacking a Congress controlled by his own party as he reviewed Trump’s attacks on Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, John McCain, Jeff Flake, and Bob Corker:
“So what’s President Trump up to? Does he want to take down the Republican party and remake it in his own image, or simply blow up everything and govern by motivating his passionate base?”
“Either way,” Todd concluded, “he’s gonna need those Republicans he’s mocking right now if he’s gonna get any of his agenda passed in the fall.”
