Trump: Republicans 'look like fools' if they don't kill Senate filibuster

 
At The Hill 

Responding to Senate Republicans' healthcare collapse this week, President Trump said Saturday that Republicans "look like fools" and the Democrats are "laughing" at them if they don't change the legislative process.

He urged Senate Republicans to abolish the legislative filibuster in a series of early-morning tweets,  claiming “200 bills” sit in the Senate waiting for action. 

Trump specifically called out Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), pushing the GOP leader to end the filibuster and move toward passing all legislation with a 51-vote majority.
