President Trump has consistently clashed with Congressional Republicans over their inability to pass his legislative agenda and threatened to shut down the government if their spending bill doesn't include funding for his border wall. But some conservatives believe President Trump's attacks on Republican leadership have only made it harder to get things done.

"These people don’t have to like each other to do business... But if Trump is going to get a tax cut and an infrastructure bill, he’s going to need every Republican vote he can get. In the end, you can only pass bills on the floor, not on Twitter."

As President Trump continues to attack Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Twitter, many GOP voters are calling on Congress to unite behind the president and blame them for failing to repeal Obamacare and pass tax reform.

"Republicans need to get behind the President and support him. The American people voted for him, got him into office and now the Republicans and Democrats are fighting him."

While President Trump has consistently defended his use of social media, a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll found a majority of voters want Trump to get off Twitter, with 57 percent saying his Tweeting "damages his own presidency." 

"Attorneys have suggested the president may be undermining the legal case for his stalled travel ban, and White House staffers have tried to downplay the significance of his statements on the social media platform."

But despite criticism from establishment Republicans, Trump supporters continue to hold Congress responsible for the lack of progress in Washington.
