The last time a Republican won the presidency, Democrats won the House and Senate.
Now, a Trump presidency would leave Democrats without a majority in the House or Senate, and the party’s chances of taking back control of the Senate would be slim.
So how would this happen?
As I have written before, the two big issues the GOP has been focusing on in the past few weeks are immigration and health care.
Both are major issues for Trump, but the two have been a focus of the GOP’s recent attacks on the president.
If Republicans want to reverse their fortunes, they have a few things to do.
First, they need to stop trying to blame the President for the health care debacle and start trying to fix the problems with the Obamacare marketplaces.
Republicans can’t blame Trump for the failure of Obamacare.
If Republicans want their president to be able to run for reelection in 2020, they will have to start blaming him for the collapse of the markets, rather than the failings of the Obamacare markets.
Second, they can’t continue to attack the president over his response to the Charlottesville protests.
The President did not do enough to address the white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and Ku Klux Klan protesters, and he did not respond to the violence that occurred at his event in response to their hate speech.
The President, of course, was not elected to be a leader of the white supremacist movement.
He was elected to lead a country in crisis, and to lead an administration that was not doing enough to support the American people in the face of the rising threats that were being faced.
Trump’s refusal to say he was sorry for the Charlottesville protesters and his subsequent response to it should not be blamed on his failure to listen to the advice of his advisers and to do the right thing.
Rather, the president’s failure to address these serious issues should be blamed, in part, on his inability to learn from the mistakes of his predecessors.
And third, Republicans can focus on the economy.
They should take the House, and get a lot of seats.
The Senate has already passed a bipartisan budget, and a GOP majority in both chambers would give Republicans control of both chambers of Congress.
Republicans would be able, in theory, to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
Republicans could then pass a new tax plan and spend a lot more time and money on things like infrastructure.
And the House would then have a lot less leverage to enact any sort of legislative agenda in the coming years.
So if Republicans want a new president to have any hope of reversing their fortunes in Congress, they should get serious about fixing the problems that exist with the health-care markets and on immigration.
To be clear, Republicans would not be in a position to do anything about the debt ceiling, the budget, or anything else that affects the American economy.
However, the House can use the House budget and the reconciliation process to pass a budget, as well as to pass tax reform and other bills that the Senate has passed.
In short, if Republicans are going to try to stop Trump from governing in a way that will benefit the American middle class, they would do well to take a more positive approach to these issues.
The only way they can stop Trump is if Democrats vote against him.
