Trump turns up heat on McConnell: "screamed Repeal & Replace"

President Trump on Wednesday afternoon: "Senator Mitch McConnell said I had "excessive expectations," but I don't think so. After 7 years of hearing Repeal & Replace, why not done?"

President Trump on Thursday morning: "Can you believe that Mitch McConnell, who has screamed Repeal & Replace for 7 years, couldn't get it done. Must Repeal & Replace ObamaCare!"

Trump was responding to an unusually blunt speech McConnell gave in Kentucky on Monday, in which he said Trump had "excessive expectations about how quickly things happen in the democratic process." Trump reportedly called McConnell before the Wednesday tweet to scold the majority leader for his comments, per the New York Times.
