In the wake of #President Trump’s known instability and #sore approval ratings, Senate republicans are beginning to display signs of drifting away from him as they begin their attempts to create a customary Republican program that will safeguard their political prosperities.

To imagine a party that is not behind its leader is to look back into the years before the #Republicans held office with admired leaders such as George W Bush and Ronald Reagan. Whilst those presidents may have had passed some deeply unpopular legislations and bills, and favored movements that many in the country didn’t like, they still mostly retained the support of their party, the Republican Party.

Trump's supporters drift away

Several Republicans have been publicly forthcoming in their questioning of President Trump’s resolution to get rid of the director of the FBI, #James Comey. After all this fractiousness, many were then quietly demoralized when Trump made threatening noises against Comey and any attempt he may have in leaking negative data or information about the president. Even those who did support Trump's Comey move have complained off-record and in private that that it was an ill-timed move that created yet more chaos.

Republicans are also not happy about #Trump's imminent budget focus with its stanzas that may remove funds for the national drug control office whilst a vicious and problematic opioid epidemic rages on throughout America.

Also, many in the Republican Party are not at all sure about Trump's impending withdrawal from the North American Free Trade Agreement and they say that they will not support it.

A stand-off is not likely

Up to this date, Republicans have resisted from staging what could look like an intervention or #stand-off with the president en masse, partly to avoid any damage this may do in the work they want to get done by the end of the year: they want to put tax bills and health care on the President's agenda within the year's end.

Even though Trump is still supported by high ranking members of the Party, such as Paul Ryan, the drift from the boss is sending an arctic chill across Washington.

And with the #White House reeling from one crisis to another, Trump is unintentionally obstructing those Republican efforts to fulfill and follow through on his promises and programs.

It's a tidal wave of dramas and fiery press and nerves are frayed. Kevin Madden, a Republican operative with experience working on Capitol Hill describes these sorts of distractions as growing into serious obstacles to aligning the main and pressing interests of Congress.

The playbook of a unified party

This is the playbook of a party who have full control of both Congress and the White House: lawmakers attempt to utilize the full force of the presidency to drive through legislative primacies, in a clear and synchronized manner, with plenty of message and theme repetition used to slam dunk. But President Trump’s transitory and ephemeral use of his pulpit for policy messaging has created chaos and distractions in this known method described above.

Lurching from crisis to crisis every day, #Washington has become the home of two demoralized parties it seems. Only time will tell if swift action is going to be taken and whether the Party of No becomes the Party of Not Following Its Leader. Many are of the opinion that Trump will need to learn the rules of politics in Washington if he is to regain control of his party's good graces. After all, Trump is a hustler and a New York business man, he is used to creating diversionary drama and tactics - chaos creation, if you will - to get what he wants.
