    “GOP Faces Angry Donors With No Legislative Wins Despite Majority : RNC meets donors in Washington to talk midterm strategy Monday” https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-09-29/gop-faces-angry-donors-with-no-legislative-wins-despite-majority “There are 10 Senate Democrats defending seats in states that President Donald Trump won in November. Republicans, who now control 52 of the 100 Senate seats, can gain a filibuster-proof majority if they win eight more. But to do so, they’ll need some accomplishments to run on” according to one major fundraiser.
    Meanwhile: In an 11 hour period beginning at 7:10 am on Saturday, the President of the United States sent 18 tweets concerning hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico from the safety and comfort of his New Jersey golf resort. He began with three that criticized the Mayor of San Juan, who apparently provoked him with a desperate call for more aid, before spending the next eight hours tweeting a series of attacks against the so-called “fake news” media for allegedly misrepresenting the actions of his administration in response to the devastation wrought by Hurricane Maria. http://www.euronews.com/2017/09/29/opinion-anger-is-overflowing-on-puerto-rico-s-crisis

      “Angry GOP donors close their wallets” http://www.politico.com/story/2017/10/05/republican-donors-trump-mcconnell-anger-243449 “When you’re in a business and you tell your stakeholders you’re going to build a building or something, you have to follow through,” said Houston-based energy executive Dan Eberhart. “I can’t borrow money to build a building and then not follow through, which is what these guys are doing.”
      Behind the scenes, the GOP has begun to try to smooth things over with its most important givers. On Monday, Trump met with the party’s most prominent donor, Las Vegas casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, who has privately expressed frustration that the president hasn’t moved the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

    Ohio Republican Gov. John Kasich said on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday that a time could come when he no longer supports the Republican Party.
    “If the party can’t be fixed, Jake, then I’m not going to be able to support the party. Period. That’s the end of it.” Kasich said in an interview with anchor Jake Tapper.
    Asked what that meant for his future in the GOP, Kasich said he was committed to the party and intended to win it over from the surging nationalist wing.
    “I want this party to be straightened out,” Kasich said.
