From his Bedminster, NJ Golf Resort President Trump posted on Twitter late Thursday night for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell 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. You can do it!

According to the Washington Post’s calculations by the end of August Trump will have spent all or part of 53 days in office at leisure, compared with 15 days for Obama through the same period in his first term.
Furthermore, Trump will have played at least 33 rounds of golf compared to Obama’s 17 rounds, and that was before he traveled to Bedminster for his vacation. A photo was posted on Instagram the day after Trump’s aggressive response to North Korea showing him hitting the links with a New York contractor.
Trump went further in passing the buck to McConnell for failing to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Speaking to reporters outside his Bedminster resort Trump hinted that he will push McConnell to step down.
“If he doesn’t get repeal and replace [of ObamaCare] done, and if he doesn’t get taxes done, meaning cuts and reform, and if he doesn’t get a very easy one to get done, infrastructure, if he doesn’t get them done, then you can ask me that question.”
