Trump renews pledge that Mexico will pay for border wall

During his campaign, Donald Trump tossed off most of the party establishment, insulting and belittling the Bushes, Romneys and other blue bloods who had for decades provided Republicans with leadership and funding. "Could have been so easy-now a mess!" he said in Twitter posts.

Trump has often expressed frustration that Congress has not passed significant legislation since he took office in January, particularly its failure to pass a bill to replace Democratic former President Barack Obama's healthcare law - something that Trump had promised to accomplish.

And he'd easily get reelected president in 2020 as a Democrat because he'd have spent four years destroying the Republican Party. Trump said in a tweet on Thursday, echoing criticisms he made earlier this month. The idea was floated in July but never gained steam in Congress.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer and House of Representatives Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi are sceptical about supporting a debt ceiling increase while Republicans pursue tax cuts that Democrats say would cause the federal deficit to balloon.

"We will pay our debts and we will make the debt limit", he said. "At a certain point, though, if you whiff on Obamacare repeal and if you whiff on tax reform, it's bound to harm them", Phillips said. "Obviously something that has to be done - that's what we always do to get the debt ceiling" raised, he said.

The latest tweets from the president came a day after Trump and McConnell pledged to work together, amid reports of tension. The US, on the other hand, has made the full faith and credit of the federal government a foundation of its policy, going back to the time of Alexander Hamilton. "You don't gratuitously inflict injury, and if you've got grievances, you air them in private".

"The President ran on it, won on it and plans to build it", White House spokeswoman Natalie Strom said.

The president is pounding his own party.

He says Arizona Republican Jeff Flake is "toxic", South Carolina's Lindsey Graham is "publicity seeking", Mitch McConnell "failed" on health care.

Trump's tactics don't line up with the conventional presidential strategy of avoiding government shutdowns - or at least sidestepping blame. Standard & Poor's estimated the 2013 shutdown cost the USA economy $24 billion.

Raising the debt limit used to be a routine legislative act, but the exercise has become a source of drama in Congress in recent years. Yet another impasse in 2011 was part of the reason why Standard & Poor's stripped the U.S. of its AAA credit rating.

Democrats and moderate Republicans also support a clean debt-ceiling increase.

"They. didn't do it so now we have a big deal with Dems holding them up (as usual) on Debt Ceiling approval".

While McConnell praised the Trump administration for his appointment of conservative judges, he seemed to remind the president where the power lies in getting those appointments on the bench.

This political dynamic could also complicate the debt ceiling fight. "They do this all the time to us", Graham said in an interview with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt. A lot of them were for two or three days; monthlong shutdowns in 1996 and 2013 saw up to 800,000 federal employees furloughed, closed national parks and museums and delayed payments of some military and veterans benefits.

Democrats know full well that most Republicans don't want to be on the hook for an untold billions to build a border wall, either.

McConnell, at an event in Louisville, Ky., on Thursday, did not respond to questions about Trump's comments. "Everyone's under you but nobody's listening".
