A Big Fight Just Broke Up Between Furious Republicans And Trump’s White House

Following Donald Trump’s deal with congressional Democrats on Friday, House Republicans unleashed their fury at treasury secretary Steve Mnuchin, calling his request to them to “vote for it for me” insulting and inappropriate.

Mnuchin, along with Trump’s budget chief, Mick Mulvaney went up to Capitol Hill shortly before a vote on the package, which included money for hurricane aid, a continuing resolution to keep the government open and a three-month extension of the debt ceiling.

As CNN reports, “multiple House Republicans emerged infuriated and dissatisfied that they addressed their concerns that the deal wasn’t the right strategy to get some of the spending reforms they’ve been pushing.”

In the closed-door meeting, Mnuchin appeared to exacerbate the anger of House Republicans who opposed clean debt limit extensions, as the treasury secretary appealed to members to do this “for me,” according to two members in the meeting.

Rep. David Brat (R-VA) lashed out at Mnuchin calling his arguments “intellectually insulting.”

“Crickets,” the Virginia Republican said, adding that House Speaker Paul Ryan could say nothing to assure them that Trump wouldn’t repeat a deal like this in the future.

Another Republican, Jeff Duncan, was furious after he asked White House officials in the room for a plan on how they are going to tackle the debt ceiling in December and he said they didn’t have one.

One House Republican told the treasury secretary directly “you know what, unfortunately, you don’t get voted in or voted out and you can’t vote for me,” Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Florida) told reporters, according to CNN.

Mnuchin further irritated conservatives when he left the meeting with roughly a dozen members still in line waiting for him to answer their questions.

Barkhuff looks directly at the camera while saying, “We need to send this draft dodger back to his golf courses. The lives of our troops depend on it.” The ad blew up on Twitter getting shared thousands and thousands of times.
