NYT: Trump And McConnell See A Way To Make Conservatives Happy

From Carl Hulse of the New York Times:

Some hard-line conservatives taking aim at Mr. McConnell were not won over by his Rose Garden bonding moment with Mr. Trump.

“Mitch McConnell’s bellyaching about all the time it takes to approve presidential personnel doesn’t hold any water when 1) every other Senate before his has managed to do this in a timely manner, and 2) his Senate works an average of 2.5 days per week,” David Bozell, president of ForAmerica, said in a statement calling for Mr. McConnell to step aside.

After Revolt Against Establishment Republicans, Trump Stands By ‘Friend’ McConnell

S.A. Miller and Dave Boyer of the Washington Times wrote:

The conservative advocacy group ForAmerica bristled at Mr. McConnell’s appearance with the president.

“Mitch McConnell is good at two things: making excuses and going on recess. He callously deflected blame onto his colleagues for his own laziness, lack of leadership and lack of results,” said ForAmerica President David Bozell.
