President Donald Trump is trying to put special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation in the rearview mirror by claiming it exonerates him before a redacted copy of the report is released on Thursday.
Speaking on “MTP Daily,” Todd cited a Monmouth University poll that found 54% of Americans want lawmakers to move on to other issues.
Given how contentious both issues are, Steele was smiling as he said it.
“I don’t see how either of those two things help them either,” Todd said. “The president’s going to miss talking about Mueller.”
Trump struggled with both issues even when Republicans controlled both houses of Congress. Attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act went nowhere, and lawmakers never approached an agreement on immigration issues.
With Democrats now in charge of the House, consensus on either issue is likely to be even tougher to reach.
