Public Policy Polling: McConnell’s Approval Rating in Kentucky Down to 18 Percent

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has a dismal approval rating of 18 percent in Kentucky, according to a Public Policy Polling survey released Monday. McConnell has drawn criticism for his handling of the GOP healthcare bill, which failed in the Senate last month after three GOP senators voted it down, and President Donald Trump has repeatedly dinged the lawmaker for his failure to push the GOP’s major legislative items through. According to The New York Times, the two men have not spoken to each other in weeks.

The White House officials want Trump to strike an ambitious deal with Congress that offers Dreamers protection in exchange for legislation that pays for a border wall and more detention facilities, curbs legal immigration and implements E-verify, an online system that allows businesses to check immigration status, according to a half-dozen people familiar with situation, most involved with the negotiations.

Phoenix on high alert for Trump rally | TheHill

“The Phoenix police is always professional and the FBI and Department of Homeland Security have been great about coordinating with local law enforcement,” former Arizona GOP Chairman Robert Graham told The Hill. Charlottesville isn’t the only reason to think the Phoenix rally could be combustible. The president has mused publicly about pardoning Joe Arpaio, the controversial former sheriff of Maricopa County, Ariz., and an early Trump supporter who was found guilty in a Justice Department investigation of racially profiling Latinos. Arpaio was found guilty of contempt of court after he continued the practices.  Democrats are warning that a public pardon at a campaign rally would stoke racial tensions at a time when the nation is on edge.
