Donald Trump took to Twitter to go after Mitch McConnell over the failed Obamacare repeal vote
by Nathan'ette Burdine: August 9, 2017

Donald Trump took to Twitter to vent his frustrations at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) over what Trump believes is the Senate’s inability to repeal Obamacare.

Trump tweeted, “Senator Mitch McConnell said I had ‘excessive expectations,’ but I don’t think so. After 7 years of hearing Repeal and Replace, why not done?”

Trump’s tweet is in response to comments McConnell made during an event at the Rotary Group in Kentucky.

During the event, McConnell took a swipe at Trump’s inexperience as a politician and his authoritarian tactics by pointing out Trump’s lack of understanding about how democracy works.

CNN quoted McConnell as saying, “Our new president, of course, has not been in this line of work before. I think he had excessive expectations about how quickly things happen in the democratic process.”
