Donald Trump, who has close to no idea what he is doing as president of the United States, is not one to take responsibility for his own actions. He has no major legislative accomplishments to show for his first six months in office, but if you ask him, that’s not his fault.
Within recent weeks, the GOP’s seven year long effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act failed following a resolute, late night “no” vote from Sen. John McCain on a “skinny repeal” measure.
Rather than take responsibility for his own administration’s legislative failings, Trump prefers to keep rage tweeting about Congressional Republicans.
Taking to the social media platform Wednesday afternoon while on vacation in New Jersey, Trump wrote:
‘Senator Mitch McConnell said I had “excessive expectations,” but I don’t think so. After 7 years of hearing Repeal & Replace, why not done?’

Well, President Trump, perhaps if your administration had worked on negotiations beyond simply alternating between pressuring Republicans in person and pressuring them on Twitter, then something would have gotten done.
Tweeting what you want to happen and waiting for it to happen just isn’t how government works, Donald. One actually has to do the work of negotiations.
