AP SPIN METER: Was Trump joking on health care?
"I don't think we've seen the end of health care", White House spokesman Sean Spicer said Monday, pointing to "a series of fits and starts" that marked the process that led to passage of President Barack Obama's health care law, too, in 2010. The Maryland Democrat sent the administration a letter Tuesday touting his infrastructure bill as a possible path forward for bipartisan cooperation.
Historian Richard E. Neustadt, in "Presidential Power: the Politics of Leadership" writes: "When contemplating General Eisenhower winning the Presidential election, Truman said, 'He'll sit here, and he'll say, 'Do this!"
House Speaker Paul Ryan isn't a populist and doesn't want to be a populist. Whereas an Australian Prime Minister can typically be assured of the support of their entire caucus in both the House of Representatives and the Senate, a United States president and his lieutenants in Congress - like Frank Underwood in season one of House of Cards - must work feverishly to "whip" votes on Capitol Hill.
Rep. Jim Himes of CT, chairman of the group also known as the New Dems, said that working with Trump is not out of the question, even though it's clear the administration has some work to do if they want support from moderate Democrats. Weber also said he is now confident health care will be brought back up in the House.
An outlandish Republican president, who lost the popular vote and won in part thanks to illegal intervention from a foreign adversary, rose to political prominence by pushing a racist conspiracy theory about his Democratic predecessor.
"A married couple earning $50,000 per year with two children and $8,000 in child care expenses will save 35 per cent from their current tax bill", the Trump campaign told The Washington Post. "We should all care that our president may or may not have conflicts of interest and we should all care to know the truth".
Steven Moore, a policy analyst at the conservative Heritage Foundation, said the White House can nab an early win with tax reform - by perhaps opting for a politically safer package.
Shunning decades of tradition, Trump has steadfastly refused to release his tax returns or to divest from his business.
Democrats charged Republicans with choosing loyalty to their party, and their president, over doing the right thing.
"As in any good investigation, we must follow the money", Pascrell said. And Trump's low approval rating - 36% in the latest Gallup tracking poll and rock bottom reputation among Democratic voters, means Democrats have little political room to work with Trump even if they wanted to.
Hours later, though, Trump himself told a bipartisan gathering of lawmakers that he expects to hammer out a new health care deal and thinks it can happen "very quickly". Ryan, in turn, is using that prospect to warn his own party about the risk of remaining divided.
Trump tore up many Republican orthodoxies and found a different way to unlock the electoral map.
"This is a president that allows a lot of access", Conway said. In fact, it's helpful to think of him as an independent president, since he ran against the Republican establishment and rejected key conservative platforms on taxes and spending.
The Weekly Standard reports "there's not much appetite in the White House for dealing with the Freedom Caucus", citing an unnamed White House aide as arguing "there's practically no reason to consider the demands of the Freedom Caucus or its chairman, North Carolina's Mark Meadows, on anything important again".
If those lofty goals are realized, the Russian Federation issue could get even more hard for the White House, as it searches in vain for low-hanging political fruit following a fraught start to the President's tenure.
Sean Spicer said Mr Trump was "well steeped" in world affairs, especially issues relating to Europe and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.
