  1.  Republicans should just REPEAL failing ObamaCare now & work on a new Healthcare Plan that will start from a clean slate. Dems will join in!
  1.  We were let down by all of the Democrats and a few Republicans. Most Republicans were loyal, terrific & worked really hard. We will return!
  1.  As I have always said, let ObamaCare fail and then come together and do a great healthcare plan. Stay tuned!
  1.  With only a very small majority, the Republicans in the House & Senate need more victories next year since Dems totally obstruct, no votes!
  1.  The Senate must go to a 51 vote majority instead of current 60 votes. Even parts of full Repeal need 60. 8 Dems control Senate. Crazy!
  1.  ICYMI- This week we hosted a event, right here at the ! If it is MADE IN AMERICA, it is the BEST! USA🇺🇸
  1.  A new INTELLIGENCE LEAK from the Amazon Washington Post,this time against A.G. Jeff Sessions.These illegal leaks, like Comey's, must stop!
  1.  While all agree the U. S. President has the complete power to pardon, why think of that when only crime so far is LEAKS against us.FAKE NEWS
  1.  So many people are asking why isn't the A.G. or Special Council looking at the many Hillary Clinton or Comey crimes. 33,000 e-mails deleted?
  1.  My son Donald openly gave his e-mails to the media & authorities whereas Crooked Hillary Clinton deleted (& acid washed) her 33,000 e-mails!
  1.  As the phony Russian Witch Hunt continues, two groups are laughing at this excuse for a lost election taking hold, Democrats and Russians!
  1.  It's very sad that Republicans, even some that were carried over the line on my back, do very little to protect their President.
  1.  It's hard to read the Failing New York Times or the Amazon Washington Post because every story/opinion, even if should be positive, is bad!
  1.  If Republicans don't Repeal and Replace the disastrous ObamaCare, the repercussions will be far greater than any of them understand!
