Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday strongly dissed President Donald trump’s proposed budget cuts to the State Department.

“American being a force is a lot more than building up the Defense Dept.,” the Republican from Kentucky told the Associated Press. “Diplomacy is important, extremely important, and I don’t think these reductions at the State Dept. are appropriate,” he added.

Republican rebellion grows with Trump under seize

McConnell is just one of a growing dissident choir made up of rebellious “Never Trumpers,” hardcore conservatives and establishment republicans that are snapping at the heels of a president they perceive as being under siege and weakened because of the recently confirmed FBI investigation of the administration for possible collusion with the Russians.

Despite Trump warning members of the House that if they didn’t repeal and replace Obamacare they probably wouldn’t be reelected in 2018, a recalcitrant, conservative cadre of Republicans is vowing not to vote for the action Thursday.

In fact, conservative Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky told Breitbart Tuesday afternoon that the Trump Administration was at least 35 votes shy of what it needed to repeal Obamacare and pass the new health care bill and would probably have to pull it back and start all over.

Trump Wall Street bounce sours

Meanwhile, the once touted “Trump bounce” in the stock market has gone south, with the market falling nearly 240 points at Tuesday’s close, as fear is fueled by growing political uncertainty. Premature yet persistent whispers and cries of possible Trump impeachment are cropping up even among some moderate Democrats.

Daily tracking poll not good

In addition, the Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows an extremely divided country, with just 50 percent of likely U.S.

voters approving of Trump’s job performance and an equal 50 percent disapproving. To make matters worse, the same poll shows that only 33 percent of those polled “strongly approve” of the way Trump is performing, with 40 percent strongly disapproving.
