The 20 Worst Political Scandals In History

WASHINGTON D.C. — While vacationing at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, President Trump escalated his attacks on Mitch McConnell Thursday when he tweeted that the Senate Majority Leader should "get back to work" to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare.

"Mitch, get back to work and put Repeal & Replace, Tax Reform & Cuts and a great Infrastructure Bill on my desk for signing," Trump wrote. "You can do it!"

The president also pointedly refused to express confidence in McConnell when asked by reporters outside his golf club if he should step down from his role as Senate Majority Leader.

"I'll tell you what if he doesn't get repeat and replace done, and if he doesn't get taxes done, meaning cuts and reform, and if he doesn't get a very easy one to get done, infrastructure, he doesn't get them done, then you can ask me that question," Trump said, as reported by ABC News. "Let's hope he gets it done."

But Newt Gingrich told Fox News that the president is partly responsible for the GOP failure to come up with a workable plan for replacing Obamacare.

"The fact is with a very narrow margin 52 people Mitch McConnell got 49 out of 52. I think the president can't disassociate himself from this," Gingrich said. "[Trump] is part of the leadership team. He is not an observer sitting up in the stands, He is on the field. It was a collective failure."

Earlier in the week, McConnell said Trump's lack of government experience may have contributed to false expectations about how Congress works.

"Our new president, of course, has not been in this line of work before," said McConnell, in the ABC News report. "And I think he had excessive expectations about how quickly things happen in the democratic process."
