President Trump arrived on Capitol Hill Tuesday afternoon to a gaggle of reporters – and one very loud protester who pretended to be a reporter in order to call the president a traitor to his face.
Trump walked alongside Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., as the two top Republicans scurried into the weekly Senate policy luncheon, as the president hopes to boost support for his tax cuts.
However his morning was marred by his renewed fight with Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., a former supporter of the president who on CNN today answered ‘no, no way,’ when asked if he’d support Trump again.
Corker said the president ‘debases our country’ by constantly telling ‘untruths.’
DailyMail.com spotted Corker heading into the luncheon, which means the two men will be face-to-face for the hour.
But before that, Trump was met with a handful of Russian flags emblazoned with the president’s name, thrown at him by a man identified by DailyMail.com as Ryan Clayton from Americans Take Action.
‘Why are they talking about tax cuts when they should be talking about treason? This president conspired with agents of the Russian government to steal an election!’ Clayton screamed. ‘We should be talking about treason in Congress, not about tax cuts!’
The president is on Capitol Hill to encourage Republican senators to get onboard what he’s calling a ‘tax cut’ plan.
