President Donald Trump started Friday with a series of tweets on one of his most frequent topics of criticism: the legislative filibuster.
The president once again attacked Republicans for failing to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act and implored the Senate to scrap the legislative filibuster as a way to pass more legislation.
“Republicans, sorry, but I’ve been hearing about Repeal & Replace for 7 years, didn’t happen!” Trump tweeted. “Even worse, the Senate Filibuster Rule will never allow the Republicans to pass even great legislation. 8 Dems control – will rarely get 60 (vs. 51) votes. It is a Repub Death Wish!”
