Michael Reagan: Look Who's the 'Party of No' Now

Newsmax TV's "America Talks Live"

Democratic lawmakers, still fuming over Hillary Clinton's loss to Donald Trump, have taken over the title of "the party of no" from Republicans, veteran political commentator Michael Reagan told Newsmax TV.

"Now the party of no are the Democrats," Reagan, the son of former President Ronald Reagan told host Bill Tucker on Monday's "America Talks Live." "They still can't get over the fact that Hillary Clinton is not the president of the United States of America.

"Remember, they had everything in place to rule forward if Hillary won. She didn't. Now they're trying to figure out what to do.

"And what they're doing is stopping everything that, in fact, the new president can try to do during his first 100 days. But you've got to give him credit that he has accomplished a lot by executive order."

In the past three months, Democrats have stalled several of Trump's nominees, including the confirmation of Robert Lighthizer.

Lighthizer, the administration's pick for U.S. trade representative, would be instrumental in renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement.

But Reagan also said the Republican Party, which has been plagued by infighting which prevented passage of the American Health Care Act, has to unite – and Trump is instrumental in making that happen.

"The Republican Party either needs a leader or an enemy to do anything," Reagan said. "What Trump has to do is truly become that leader of the party.

"Republicans have trouble getting together . . . to pass a single piece of legislation . . . It's like if they don't get 100 percent, the different factions, of what they want, then in fact they'll throw it all back.

"Trump needs to pull by the horns to push through what he wants to get done."

Reagan also said Trump must work hard to improve his national rating to get tax reform passed and recalled how his father Ronald Reagan was able to enact tax breaks in August 1981.

"One of the things he said to [Democratic House Speaker] Tip O'Neill at the White House was very simple: any Democrats that vote for my tax bill, my father promised . . . that he wouldn't run against them in the upcoming election," Reagan said.

"So, he wouldn't campaign against anyone on the Democrat side of the aisle who voted with my father for tax reform, and it passed. And my father did not, in fact, go out and run against any of the Democrats who voted in his favor.

"If Trump can move the ball and his ratings up with the American people, that will automatically bring Democrats to the party for fear of losing in the next election process."
