President Trump once again pressed Senate Republicans to install a 51-vote threshold to pass legislation on Saturday, in a flurry of tweets that claim the current setup is controlled by the Democrats.
“Republicans in the Senate will NEVER win if they don’t go to a 51 vote majority NOW. They look like fools and are just wasting time,” Trump tweeted in the early hours of the morning. “8 Dems totally control the U.S. Senate. Many great Republican bills will never pass, like Kate’s Law and complete Healthcare. Get smart!”
For days now, the president has pressured the leadership to end the filibuster, which requires 60 votes to break. The president also said that budget reconciliation, which lets bills be approved in the Senate with only 51 votes instead of the 60 needed to stop a filibuster, is “killing” the Republicans in the Senate.
“200 Bills sit in Senate,” he tweeted. “A JOKE!”
