Murkowski, Sullivan dine with Trump


Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Sen. Dan Sullivan and other Senate leaders are having their weekly policy luncheon today, and President Donald Trump is attending. Usually Vice President Mike Pence attends.

Before the “Unity” lunch, as it’s billed, Trump and Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee traded indignities and insults over tax reform, in a battle of words that swamped the news cycle.

The lunch, in the historic Mansfield Room of the Capitol is intended to demonstrate unity on the Republican agenda of tax reform, health care reform, and energy dominance.

A protestor, posing as a journalist, threw papers with the image of the Puerto Rico flag on them at Trump as he arrived at the luncheon with Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, as seen in this screen shot of a video shot by NBC’s Frank Thorpe V. The protestor was removed in handcuffs by Capitol security.

Trump last attended a Senate Republican lunch in 2016, when he was the party’s nominee for president.

  • So when is Murkowski going to issue a statement about the sale of our uranium by her hero Clinton?

  • Protesters should be right at home with our mostly fake news media.
