President Donald Trump Tells Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to eliminate the 60-vote but he says hell no
“If Republican Senate doesn’t get rid of the Filibuster Rule & go to a simple majority, which the Dems would do, they are just wasting time!” Trump wrote on Twitter on Wednesday morning. Trump’s message proves that he is ignoring McConnell’s protests about maintaining the rule, further escalating the division between the two leaders. “There’s not a single senator in the majority who thinks we ought to change the legislative filibuster,” McConnell told reporters in April. “Not one.”
