President Donald Trump's relationship with Republican leaders in Congress is "at a low" after his deal with Democrats to raise the debt ceiling, The Hill reports.

"It is at a low. The deal to push the debt limit to December isn't that big a deal, but the undercutting appears to be a jab," an anonymous Republican senator told the Hill.

Trump's Director of the Office of Management and Budget Mick Mulvaney said Thursday that the president is "annoyed at Republican leadership," in an interview on Fox Business Network.

"As a Republican, so am I. As a citizen, I am too. I was promised that they would have repealed and replaced Obamacare by now. … To the extent that the president was annoyed by that is simply reflecting many of the people of this country."

"There's very little consistency. This makes it difficult for the leadership," Rep. Walter Jones, R-N.C., told the Hill. "I have been here for over 22 years and have never seen a seven months like these past seven months regarding the uncertainty out of the White House.

"On Monday, he feels this way on the issue. On Tuesday, he feels a different way."

"I don't think it's the president going rogue, but I think the president needs to be a little more explicit, giving [Republicans] a warning of the direction he's going," Rep. Tim Walberg, R-Mich., told the Hill. "I hope in the future, he'll at least step to the side of the room with leadership and say, 'This is what I'm thinking.' "
