President Trump’s former chief of staff Mark Meadows talks about his upcoming book, “The Chief’s Chief.” He also analyzes the historic collapse of Republican leadership in the Congress under Mitch McConnell.
“When we saw the fold last night, basically before the ink was even dry on the demand … they’re folding to quote save the filibuster. I think most people … believe having that filibuster is not a winning combination. I knowÂ when I was in with President Trump, it was always the filibuster that was the reason why Republicans couldn’t get things done. And yet Mitch McConnell and his team folded last night on the debt ceiling…. Why didn’t we force Democrats to go there alone? That’s what McConnell originally said he would do.”
