Report: Trump planning huge strategy shift, ‘warfare’ with Congress
CNBC has reported a source close to House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and former chief of staff Reince Priebus says President Donald Trump is planning to shift his political strategy and could engage in “warfare” against Republican Congress.
According to a post by CNBC’s John Harwood on Twitter, “Ryan-Priebus ally to me: next phase of Trump presidency will be warfare against GOP Congress.”
“Ryan-Priebus ally tells me Trump is moving toward ‘an independent WH’ untethered from the Republican Party,” Harwood also posted.
Harwood said he believes this shift, if true, could be a bad sign for Republicans hoping to pass significant tax reform.
