President Trump called Thursday for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to “get back to work.”
“Mitch, get back to work and put Repeal & Replace, Tax Reform & Cuts and a great Infrastructure Bill on my desk for signing,” Trump tweeted Thursday.
“You can do it!”

On Wednesday, Trump expressed frustration with McConnell after the Kentucky Republican vented about the president’s “excessive expectations” for his agenda.
“Senator Mitch McConnell said I had ‘excessive expectations,’ but I don’t think so. After 7 years of hearing Repeal & Replace, why not done?” Trump asked in a tweet.
“Can you believe that Mitch McConnell, who has screamed Repeal & Replace for 7 years, couldn’t get it done,” Trump tweeted Thursday. “Must Repeal & Replace ObamaCare!”
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Thursday said there is “some frustration” with the Senate leader.
“You can see the president’s tweets. Obviously there’s some frustration. I don’t have anything more to add,” Sanders told reporters in New Jersey, where Trump is vacationing for 17 days at his golf club in Bedminster.
