Over the last month, one of the biggest issues Donald Trump faced was his health care bill failing to get even enough support among Republicans in the House of Representatives to be put up for a confident vote. Trump and members of the right-wing House Freedom Caucus clashed in public, but members of the administration are continuing to spin the news in their favor.

During the 2016 presidential election, it was made crystal clear that there were many Republicans who were not impressed with Donald Trump and his campaign. Ranging from more establishment members of the party like House Speaker Paul Ryan, to those on the far end of the right-wing political spectrum, Trump was never able to win over every conservative, but was able to get enough support to come out on top in the primary, and eventually in the general election last November.

In the months since his election win, Trump has had a rocky relationship with his fellow Republicans over a variety of issues. While the tension between both sides has been well-documented, it was the fight over health care that put the spat in the headlines. After Trump was forced to pull the health care bill, titled the American Health Care Act, from even having a vote, the president was quick to put the blame on a variety of people, including the House Freedom Caucus, Speaker Ryan, and even his Chief of Staff Reince Priebus. Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro, a supporter of the president, highlighted these issues, but clashed with Presidential Counsel Kellyanne Conway during the April 8 edition of her program "Justice with Judge Jeanine."

As part of her opening monologue, Jeanine Pirro praised Donald Trump for his recent missile strike on a Syrian airbase, an issue that has caused even more division in conservative circles.

Pirro also spent the majority of her opening segment blasting Republicans in Congress for not giving Trump enough support, which Kellyanne Conway attempted to push back on.

"I have to push back on your opening," Kellyanne Conway said. "I think it was a remarkable week for President Donald Trump and Republicans in Washington," Conway said.

Jeanine Pirro chimed in, saying that it was for Trump, but not so much for the GOP in congress. "But this is what I am saying about the president," Pirro said, before pointing out that Trump has enough Democrats to worry about that he doesn't need opposition from his own party.

"The Republicans in Congress have to take a script or a page from the president and start delivering as well," Jeanine Pirro went on to say.

Kellyanne Conway did her best to spin the news, stating there has been "progress" on the issue of health care, despite no evidence being shown to back up the claim.

Despite how Kellyanne Conway tries to spin the news in favor of Donald Trump and the Republican Party, it's been clear that there is no love lost between both sides. While Trump and the GOP look to regroup on various issues, only time will tell if they will be able to get the job done.
