The President this morning urged Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to go nuclear in getting the budget and wall passed.
Mitch, use the Nuclear Option and get it done! Our Country is counting on you!

The Freedom Caucus Chairman and Founder Rep. Mark Meadows also urged Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to use the nuclear option and pass the spending bill.
But Jeff Flake the RINO (Republican in Name Only) was having none of it. He already tweeted that he wasn’t going to support the wall or going nuclear.
The Senate filibuster is about the only mechanism left in Washington that brings the parties together. Deploying the nuclear option would blow that up. I will not vote to do it. https://t.co/XDL19fuSMP

Flake has made a name not supporting the President, some consider him even more radical in his TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) than even Senator Chuck Schumer, the Democratic leader.
With Republicans like Jeff Flake, the Democrats, it’s easy to see that Trump is the only voice left of a Republic trying to hang on to it’s once greatness.
