This week, ATTN: sat down exclusively with U.S. Senator and former Democratic VP nominee Tim Kaine to discuss his thoughts on the Trump administration and specifically how Senate Democrats should react to the Republican agenda. According to recent polls, the Democratic Party’s base is roughly split over whether they want to see their representatives totally resist President Trump versus strike deals with him.
We asked this question to Sen. Kaine, reminding him that Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell once said that the GOP’s primary goal was to make President Obama a one-term president. Here’s how Kaine responded: “That’s not how I define success. The Republicans’ [definition] of success in the age of Obama is to make this president a one-term president. The Democrats are defining our success [during the Trump administration] by having the back of our people. We have to make sure we advance American values, our reputation, and protect people from getting hurt.”
