The Fix
Pivoting from Friday — when the president laid the blame on Democrats — Trump fired Sunday at his own party. But he wasn’t the only Republican expressing frustration with the conservative caucus. Open warfare within the party shows how much the loss is stinging the GOP internally.
Rep. Ted Poe resigned from the conservative coalition, which is facing criticism from the White House and GOP leaders, in protest of the group’s opposition to the failed Republican health-care legislation.

The president has made 13 visits to his own golf courses since the inauguration, likely playing golf on at least 12 of those occasions. He’s also dined at the Trump International Hotel in Washington and stayed at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.
The 44th president has attempted to stay above the Washington fray and emphasized the need for a new generation of political leaders to step up. But instead of settling into a quiet life, Barack Obama is preparing to throw himself into the highly partisan issue of redistricting, with the goal of reversing the electoral declines that Democrats experienced under his watch.
