The majority of Republican senators are opposed to President trump’s quest for the revival of health care debate at the Senate. However, the President and his Republican Party are not willing to quit the race to get Obamacare repealed and replaced. They are highly committed to their pledge to get the Obama law overhauled or nothing else.

President Trump’s fund raising abilities are the live wire of the Republican National Committee and the engine that drives almost all Republican planning that relies heavily on the party for financial support for 2018 congressional elections. The party depends heavily on Trump’s appeal to small and medium donors to finance the party’s activities.

Trump’s fundraising prowess

The party has realized a donation of $75 million in the first six months of Trump assumption of the presidency; this is more than double the opposition Democratic National Committee raised during the first year of Obama presidency.

In June alone, Trump hosted a fundraising event for his re-election campaign and also for the RNC, according to Fox News. The event which was held at the Trump International Hotel, opposite the White House, realized about $10 million which was to be divided between the President and his party. Such kind of bounty is normally held during the last months leading to an election.

Trump’s comparative advantage

The amount realized from the fundraising event highlights why most Republicans, especially those canvassing for re-election in 2018 are not moving away from the President, who has scored below 40 percent in his approval rating and whose administration is faced with public infighting and legislative defeats.

As a smart President, Trump has willingly reached out to Republicans who distance from him and tend to find a compromise aimed at winning them to his side.

Last week firing of Reince Priebus by Trump sparked concerns by most congressional Republicans who knew Priebus during his six years reign as a tough party chairman. Some were worried if the President was losing his direct link to the party.

However, there are also bad moments for the Republicans, Just last week, Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona, in his book launching, bemoaned at Trump for love for tough men and authoritarians. Trump also ridiculed Republican senators over the weekend for failing to pass the health care bill, seeking to repeal Obamacare. He said Democrats were busy laughing at the GOP senators and making the gist of them while they look like fools.
