Trump can’t win fight w/Raul

In this morning's editorial, Opinion Editor Marty Trillhaase/Lewiston Tribune comments:

News flash to President Donald Trump: Idaho already knows 1st District Congressman Raul Labrador is better at blowing up legislative deals than passing them. It's no secret that Labrador is the Cruz director on the S.S. Dysfunction.

We need no presidential tweets on the subject.

Even before voters sent him to Washington, D.C., almost seven years ago, he was making a name for himself in the Idaho House for sidetracking Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter's dreams for a transportation funding bill. More here.

Question: Are you pulling for either side in the twitter war between Donald Trump and Raul Labrador over the GOP health care plan defeat?
