Fox Host Says President Trump Reaps what Candidate Trump Sowed

Fox Business anchor Dagen McDowell said Friday that Republican disunity comes from the style President Donald Trump used to win the GOP nomination.

“You talk about eating each other? The problem is President Trump, when he was running for the nomination, he gobbled up Republicans right and left like M&M’s. Little Marco, Lyin’ Ted, Low-energy Jeb — he decimated, I mean he destroyed, the party and they resent it,” she said.

Throughout Trump’s months as president, Republicans have failed to unify behind a solid legislative agenda, as shown last month when Senate Republicans failed to pass several versions of an Obamacare replace and repeal. In addition to this, Trump has not only been a target of Democratic legislators, but has also seen constant criticism from the GOP, such as Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.

GOP infighting was the topic of discussion Friday on the Fox News show Outnumbered as panelists discussed Trump’s comments that he could be open to a replacement for Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., as Senate majority leader.

“Is it smart for the president, if you’re looking at strategy, is it smart for him to try and potentially throw Mitch McConnell under the bus?” asked co-host Gillian Turner.

Fox News contributor Pete Hegseth suggested the GOP “disband” if tax reform joins Obamacare on the pile of failures.

McDowell said Washington has some basic issues to address first.

“You’re getting ahead of yourself,” she said. “You have to keep the government open and avoid a debt default by the end of the month. I’ll predict this: This ain’t getting done this year.This is a disaster. And by the way, to call Mitch McConnell a leader is a misnomer because he is not leading.”

Hegseth then criticized others who do not support Trump.

“What doesn’t help is when you have senators like Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) who run against Obamacare and then they vote with Democrats,” Hegseth said, noting that just because Trump is not the standard Washington politician does not mean Republicans should be distancing themselves from him.

“There are the ones shooting inside the tent. This president wants to do all the things they said they wanted to do on the campaign trail — yet because he is a little bit different, he’s outside the box, he speaks differently, they can’t get behind him?” he said.

McDowell agreed Trump has tried ot make it easy for Congress.

“With Obamacare repeal-and-replace the president basically said, for better or worse, just have at it, do what you’ve been working on for the last seven years and I’ll sign whatever you put in front of me,” McDowell said. “And they still can’t get it done.”
