Update America covered more on the canceled party and presentation of a good meal to those who seemed to deserve it a lot more! “President Donald Trump surprised members of Congress earlier this week when he abruptly canceled the annual Congressional Picnic.
Basically, the president felt like they didn’t deserve it.
The menu included “ribeye steaks, spinach, coleslaw, quinoa, black beans and pies.”
Rather than let Congress throw a fancy picnic, President Trump’s administration decided to feed all of the food to “Walter Reed hospital patients, caregivers and employees at the Warrior and Family Center in Bethesda,” Bloomberg’s Jennifer Jacobs reported.
That means America’s military heroes are going to be eating very good.
President Trump has called on Democrats to stop “obstructing” and work with Republicans to pass comprehensive immigration reform. Earlier this week, the president signed an executive order to keep immigrant families together. Now it’s lawmakers’ turn to do their job.
“We must maintain a Strong Southern Border. We cannot allow our Country to be overrun by illegal immigrants as the Democrats tell their phony stories of sadness and grief, hoping it will help them in the elections,” Trump tweeted on Friday. “Obama and others had the same pictures, and did nothing about it!”
Trump isn’t the only one who doesn’t seem happy with Congress. Their approval ratings aren’t doing so well among voters either.
“It’s no secret that Congress isn’t exactly the most popular institution in American government. But now it’s reaching new lows.
Congress sank to a 10% approval rating in a new Quinnipiac University poll released on Thursday, with roughly five in six Americans saying they disapprove of the country’s legislative body. This compares to an 18% approval rating in March. And if you’re searching for the main reason behind the drop, look no further than Republican voters.
Back in January and March, more than one in three Republicans said they had positive views of Congress, which is controlled by the GOP in both chambers.
