THE MEMO: Trump faces dangerous week

The Hill by Niall Stanage -- 

President Trump is at risk of having the worst week of his presidency — but it could still turn around.

Trump trekked to Capitol Hill on Tuesday hoping to cajole skeptical Republicans into voting for the healthcare legislation advanced by Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.). 

The stakes could hardly be higher.

After FBI Director James Comey buffeted the administration early this week, a defeat on healthcare would be disastrous for Trump. The vote is set for Thursday.

If, on the other hand, the legislation passes, it would buttress one of the White House’s central arguments: that, like Trump or not, he is a president who gets things done.
