I believe that it would be NOT supporting the President of one's Party as he attempts to fulfill campaign promises that would endanger a Member of Congress's future.


Political Campaign - A political campaign is an organized effort which seeks to influence the decision making process within a specific group.

 

President of the USA - The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States; he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any Subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices, and he shall have Power to Grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.

 

He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.

 

The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.

 

He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information on the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respect to the Time of Adjournment, he may adjourn them to such Time as he shall think proper; he shall receive Ambassadors and other public Ministers; he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed, and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States.

 

I searched the US Constitution - it says nothing about the US President having any obligation to keep a single Campaign Promise!

 

Also - Not a Single Reference of a requirement to take the Advice of Fanatical Right Wing Conservative Republican Pundits and/or Talk Show Hosts

@williamb39198 said When will the repubs really stand up to trump and not just pay lip service. Now or never?

Well now is their chance. There seem to be a few offering words of not agreeing with the shut down, but what are they doing about it? NOW is their time to do something besides just flap their lips. They have done this for 2 yrs sit back and do NOTHING. Do your jobs, protect the Country.

I’m not sure that there is a word to describe trump’s response. It does though ask who is really running our country...conservatives and ultra right talk show hosts? Did we elect these people and their agenda...no! But then again we really don’t have a real elected president...he lost by 3 million. 

When will the repubs really stand up to trump and not just pay lip service. Now or never?

Sen. Bob Corker Says Trump Is Taking Orders From Talk Radio Hosts As Shutdown Looms

 

“That’s tyranny, isn’t it?” the senator said, according to CNN.

 

Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) had “very stark warnings” about the potential partial government shutdown Friday, according to CNN’s Manu Raju.

 

Corker reportedly criticized President Trump’s tendency to be controlled by the opinions of talk-radio hosts, equating their influence over the last 24 hours to “tyranny.” 

 

“Do we succumb to tyranny of radio talk show hosts?” Corker reportedly said, alluding to talk radio personalities like Rush Limbaugh and “Fox & Friends” hosts throwing a fuss when they learned Trump would sign a bill to fund the government that didn’t include $5 billion for a border wall.

 

Trump changed his mind Thursday and announced that he wouldn’t sign the bill passed by the Senate Wednesday, angering many Republicans like Corker in the process.

 

“We have two talk radio hosts who influenced the president,” Corker said, according to Raju.

 

“That’s tyranny, isn’t it?”

 

The Friday midnight deadline looms as still no agreement has been reached to avoid a partial government shutdown.
