  • President Trump is setting the agenda for Republicans and dominating the press coverage

David Perdue, a Georgia Republican and a leader of the effort to persuade McConnell to stay into August.

Bill Nelson is calling "raw politics", Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has canceled most of the Senate's August recess, forcing would-be campaigning senators to remain in Washington for most of the month.

Republicans are working with the narrowest of majorities as Sen. Some critics of his recent trade moves also were there, including farm-state Senators Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin. "NOW is the time to vote on Fridays (even wknds!)". It could be subject to a parliamentary challenge over whether it's germane to the annual bill authorizing defense programs. It has already cleared the House.

By mid-afternoon, House GOP leaders had released no updates on their plans for a five-week break beginning July 27.

"Senate Republicans are running scared", Quigley concluded. They're anxious about a wider trade war spiking prices for home-state businesses and consumers if Trump imposes steel and aluminum tariffs, as planned, on imports from Canada, Mexico and the European Union.

Several other Republican lawmakers expressed similar sentiments. It hoped to discover how an unorthodox and polarizing president like Trump-with very tenuous ties to the Republican Party-would affect the party's stature. He said there were a number of issues Republicans still hadn't reached consensus on, like a question of whether there would be a special pathway to citizenship for DACA recipients ― or something akin to citizenship, like permanent legal status ― and he didn't see Republicans coalescing behind a bill before enough members signed onto a discharge petition that is now just three members short of forcing a vote.

"We're not there confronting the president on tariffs".

If the discharge petition succeeds, it could lead to passage of legislation that would give "Dreamers" - immigrants who came to the United States illegally as minors - a path to citizenship. Conservatives are opposed to creating a new pathway to staying in the US permanently, equating it with granting amnesty to lawbreakers. Underscoring the sensitivity of the session, staff is to be excluded.

But McConnell said he would potentially allow the NDAA to be used to push it through.

"The construction of a physical wall is an expensive and inefficient use of our taxpayers' hard-earned dollars", he said in a statement. "And I really do believe that that is a sweet spot here".

Rep. Carlos Curbelo, R-Fla., said in an interview last week that he saw a 50-50 chance of those talks succeeding. "On policy grounds, they strongly support this. So this is a totally politically motivated action on his part", Hirono said.

Roberts hesitated though on whether he could back the bill. Anyone who doesn't back their free trade principles is "going to have a harder time getting support from our network", an official with the Koch network told Quartz. The Senate has so far confirmed 448 of Trump's nominees, far fewer than for any of the previous four presidents.

Meadows said, "We had good discussions on how you take a DACA population and make sure that they don't have to face deportation but also that ultimately how do they get a bridge into a legal immigration system".
