Cavuto to Trump: Stop 'Kicking the Guys on Your Side in the A**'
It's no secret that President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell don't exactly see eye to eye, but their relationship may be even more strained than it appears.
The New York Times reported that the two have not spoken in weeks and things have devolved into "open conflict."
On "Your World" today, Neil Cavuto advised Trump to stop picking public fights with his allies, because it's going to come back to haunt him.
He pointed out that McConnell enabled Trump's biggest presidential achievement thus far - the appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court - by holding up the process until a new president was in office, and then using the "nuclear option" in the Senate to get Gorsuch appointed.
"The two of you are very different, but you share goals that are very similar," Cavuto said.
He said that Trump's base may love all the confrontation, but they won't like the results.
"Pointing the finger at your team only invites them to point a very different finger back at you," Cavuto said. "Who’d have your back if you keep kicking the guys on your side in the a**?"
He said it's important for Trump to remember that loyalty works both ways.
"You are the quarterback. Appreciate the team," Cavuto said. "Go ahead and rip their institution, many have, but they’re the only institution you’ve got. And you’re running out of friends."
