Trump Drives His Few Political Friends Away

(CNN)Donald Trump was never part of the Washington in-crowd.
Yet the President is fast losing the few friends he did have in the
capital, following a wild period in which he offered cover to white
supremacists and ignited a war of words with North Korea, leaving GOP
allies in the crossfire.

.

Thursday brought rebukes from two prominent Republican senators and a
member of the highly influential Murdoch family, staunch supporters of the
President.

.

Bob Corker, one of the most respected Senate Republicans, who has tried to
keep open channels to the White House and coax Trump toward a more
conventional foreign policy, unloaded on him in a spectacular manner.
The chairman of the Senate foreign relations committee is not prone to
outspoken outbursts and thinks carefully before delivering his analysis.
So his critique that the President has not shown sufficient stability,
competence or understanding of the character of the country that he leads
was devastating.

words

.

South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott was another Trump ally who had been
wrestling with a painful political and moral dilemma. But he also broke
ranks Thursday, saying he could not defend the "indefensible" in the wake
of Trump's comments about the alt-right rallies in Charlottesville.
Scott, the only black Republican senator, suggested that Trump had
squandered the moral authority of his office -- a critical commodity vital
in binding the nation together in a time of crisis or national tragedy
that also helps to sustain the power of any presidency.

.

Another sign of Trump's growing isolation came Thursday night. James
Murdoch, the 21st Century Fox CEO and son of Rupert Murdoch, who is one of
Trump's close informal advisers, wrote a withering email denouncing the
President's reaction to the White Supremacist rally and the violence it
sparked.

.

"I can't even believe I have to write this: standing up to Nazis is
essential; there are no good Nazis," Murdoch wrote. "Or Klansmen, or
terrorists. Democrats, Republicans, and others must all agree on this, and
it compromises nothing for them to do so."

.

Their sharp words were a clear indication of the damage that Trump
inflicted on himself with his unchained news conference Tuesday, in which
he drew an equivalence between racists and counterprotestors in
Charlottesville and offered a shocking glimpse of his inner beliefs and
temperament.

.

The defections of the two senators followed a stampede away from Trump by
CEOs who served on White House advisory councils, amid fears their company
brands could be tarnished by association with the President.

.

It all left Trump increasingly alone and even more reliant on his
ever-loyal core voters, who sustain him in times of self-inflicted
controversy and public outrage, but who may not represent a sufficiently
broad base on which to build a successful presidency.

.

Congressional tensions have a political price

.

The rebukes by Corker and Scott also pointed to a looming political
problem that Trump has only exacerbated by his recent behavior.
The President was already lacking friends in the Senate, a reality that
became clear in his narrowly failed push to repeal and replace Obamacare
that left little doubt that few senators fear or revere him.

.

If he is to enact his ambitious political agenda that includes items such
as tax reform and a massive infrastructure program -- or to influence
Senate Republican legislation on these issues -- he will need to mend his
toxic relations with top GOP members of the chamber, not least his feud
with Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell.
