Regarding the Aug. 11 front-page article “Trump’s attack on GOP ally criticized”:

The battering tweets of President Trump on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) ensure that the aborted midnight ride of the “skinny repeal” of the Affordable Care Act through the chambers of the Senate will go down in history along with that other famous midnight ride Americans so revere. These continual assaults on the Senate guarantee that nothing will be accomplished legislatively under the reign of this boisterous president.
