With many Republicans in Congress still on the fence regarding their party’s presumptive nominee, Manhattan businessman Donald Trump visited Capitol Hill Thursday, beginning to form relationships with congressional leaders.
Shortly before presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump was to meet with Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other Senate leaders, Minority Leader Harry Reid criticized the two Republicans for their views on women.
"When they get together, they can talk about their policies about being anti-woman," Reid said. "Since Sen. McConnell has so enthusiastically embraced Trump, we can only assume he agrees with Trump's view that women are dogs and pigs."
Senate leaders used opening remarks on the floor Wednesday to honor Ed Pesce, the longtime director of the Senate Periodical Press Gallery, calling him a fixture behind the office’s signature saloon doors.
Minority Leader Harry Reid commended Pesce’s work, along with gallery staff, who act as nonpartisan liaisons coordinating communication between congressional staff and media outlets across several countries.
Minority Leader Harry Reid said on the Senate floor Wednesday that President Barack Obama’s nominee to the Supreme Court will be sent to the Senate "in a matter of a week or so."
