Along a highway to a airfield as President Trump finished his holiday in Florida, people greeted a presidential motorcade with fluttering American flags, and signs reading “Puppies for Trump,” “Fire McMaster,” “Hillary for prison,” and “Trump Strong.” Then there were a others: “President Trump is feign news,” “Go divided and don’t come back,” “Mr. Mueller is entrance for [you]” and “Resign.”

Such is a impulse in this divided nation.

Trump returned to Washington on Sunday for what will be a vicious week for his legislative agenda. In a entrance days, Congress contingency residence immigration issues, children’s medical and continued appropriation for a government.

That’s not to discuss a GOP taxation cut devise that privileged a House and faces an capricious destiny in a Senate. (Trump over a weekend pronounced he hoped a Senate would “come through” and approve a plan.)

Nancy Pelosi and others, comparison Democratic Rep. John Conyers Jr., a No. 2 on a absolute House Judiciary Committee, pronounced Sunday he would step down from his post as he faces an ethics review into allegations he intimately tormented womanlike staffers.
