Over the past few days, many conservatives have criticized President Trump for working with Democrat Nancy Pelosi. However, the critics fail to understand that in order to engender meaningful reform the President cannot work with only Republicans.
Yesterday morning, the National Review posted an editorial piece, slamming the President and accused him of “prosecutorial discretion employed by President Obama.” Perhaps the National Review writers should take a seat and understand how engendering reform works.
First and foremost, President Trump will have to work with Democrats. This is not to say he’s catering to their agenda or becoming their puppet. To achieve reform, one cannot only work with their own party. Anyone who says otherwise is wrong.
Moreover, part of the reason Congress is in their current mess is due to their inability to work with others. Democrats only want to work with other Democrats. Republicans only want to work with other Republicans. However these two parties justified this mindset is irrelevant. It simply does not work.
Staunch conservatives are not the only ones who disapprove of Trump and Pelosi working together. Liberals are additionally outraged, as noted by the Washington Post. Pelosi recently came under fire by members of her own party for not securing a legal deal for the children of illegal immigrants in her work with President Trump.
