Despite the lies that Democrats are telling the public, and the chaos being sold by the media, there is actually a good amount of unity among the Republican Party when it comes to policy. Even if they dislike President Donald Trump, they are still coming together on many issues (well, except for healthcare….we are working on that).
Conservative commentator and Daily Wire editor-in-chief Ben Shapiro reassured Americans about GOP senators voting along the party lines.
“What does the left expect?” Shapiro continued, “They think that Republican senators are going to start voting with Democrats because they don’t like Trump personally?”
He said that Conservative lawmakers are more unified on policy than they are on Trump. He continued, “A lot of people cringe, I’m sure, in D.C. at his personality for reasons both good and bad,” he added, “But when it comes to the policy fights Republicans are going to vote Republican because they’re Republicans, presumably.”
“We have to separate off Trump’s policy at least in governing terms from his personality,” he stated.
However, the president must be careful to cultivate good relationships with as many senators as he can, given the GOP’s razor-thin majority, Shapiro said.
Senators Jeff Flake (R-AZ) and Bob Corker (R-TN) have both been on the receiving end of Trump’s criticism, and both have said they will not seek re-election. This gives them more flexibility to vote as they please, which some worry will derail the White House’s agenda.
“All he needs is for three Republican senators to peel off and he loses the majority for anything,” Shapiro concluded.
