'...one Republican senator in favor of the BCRA told The Times that the president 'did not have a grasp of some basic elements of the Senate plan' during a meeting with all of the GOP members on Tuesday. The senator also said Trump was confused when a moderate expressed concern that the bill would be seen as a tax break for the rich.'

'A senior Republican close to both the Senate and the White House also told The Post that Republican lawmakers thought Trump was a 'paper tiger' and did not mind going 'their own way.'

The lack of deference, according to The Post, comes from a feeling among lawmakers that Trump lacks an understanding of policy and that his low approval numbers do not give him much political capital.'
