MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” panel on Wednesday discussed the difficulties Democrats might face in opposing a Trump administration right off the bat.
The Democratic party seems divided on working with a Trump administration. Incoming Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) seems willing to work with Trump on certain issues, while Rep. Joaquín Castro (D-TX) and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) have publicly expressed that they do not intend to work with the new president on anything.
“If you’re up for re-election in 2018, you’re going to be tested early next year. If Trump comes forward with some kind of infrastructure package that has highways in your state, and maybe the Rustbelt or the Upper Midwest or the West and you’re facing a Republican challenger, this is maybe one president who on federal spending is not a typical Republican,” The Washington Post’s Robert Costa told the panel. “There’s so much pressure, intense, from the left to not work with Trump that they’re really going to have to make a choice.”
The Huffington Post’s Sam Stien reported, “Trump’s transition team is advising him, or people on the transition team, are advising him to work around Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid and go straight to members of the Congressional Black Caucus directly saying help us out with an infrastructure bill. And they think that if they go around leadership, they can pluck off enough members to even get 300 house votes on a massive infrastructure package.”
