Senate leader cancels most of August recess, forcing campaign schedule scramble

07 Juin 2018

But the Senate version carries a warning to Trump with a trade provision to block any White House plan to lift penalties on the China-based telecommunications company ZTE, which faces trade law violations over selling sensitive technologies to US adversaries.

Most people's dissatisfaction with Donald Trump stems from who he is as a person, so while people have been less happy with the Republican Party since his election it's hard to say for sure whether he has caused lasting damage to their reputation.

Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., speaks to reporters at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast meeting in Washington on April 18, 2018.

"I just think a growing economy is going to be critical in November", Gardner said Tuesday.

"I will never sign another bill like this again".

The Senate is scheduled to vote on the bill later this month, giving Corker a short window to rally votes.

Corker said Trump called him Wednesday morning and asked him not to file the bill.

Sky News says the shift "was evident on the day after Mr Trump's inauguration, when the women's march on Washington drew the largest single-day protest crowd in United States history".

But for the GOP moderates who are on the verge of forcing a vote, that special pathway is a key component of any immigration bill ― and that makes a compromise hard.

But not every Republican who worries about the tariffs is willing to back the long-shot plan.

McConnell has faced pressure from a growing group of Senate Republicans who feel the body has not accomplished enough under a GOP majority.

"I think it reflects his way to read the tea leaves". For the moderates who want to address immigration, a pathway has to be part of the discussion. It's unclear how much Democratic support exists and there's now no commitment their House counterparts would follow suit. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) tweeted. "It is broken down", Larry Kudlow, the president's top economic adviser, told reporters Wednesday.

McConnell said he "can't imagine" that the Trump administration is "not thinking about this" possibility as rumors of Kennedy's impending retirement persist. "They're forever marked by that and they can never get their virtue back".

The last omnibus was finally passed in March, but it was so massive and costly that Trump nearly refused to sign it. He warned that if they didn't bear fruit, he and his supporters "fully expect" to continue pushing their petition. Democratic senators sponsoring the bill are Sens.

Senators of both parties said they welcomed the extra weeks of work, with Democrats signaling they intend to use the period to focus attention on health care.

Meadows heads the conservative House Freedom Caucus, which demands construction of a wall along the southwest border with Mexico and has sought new limits on legal migration.

This new direction could even mean funding Democrats sometimes, the Koch official said.

Voters in California will go to the polls in the state's primary election on Tuesday with a large number of first-time women candidates on the ballot.

"I am even more convinced that the Federal Bureau of Investigation did exactly what my fellow citizens would want them to do when they got the information they got, and that it has nothing to do with Donald Trump", Gowdy said after the briefing last month.
