"President Trump, outraged that a woman would dare stand in the way of a bill he has shown only cursory interest in passing, had Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke call both Alaskan Senators and threatened to withhold federal support for a number of plans and projects that would directly benefit their constituents in a pathetic attempt to bully her into submission.  The Hill reports that  Chairwoman Murkowski has ordered the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee to publicly postpone a vote on confirming six Trump Interior Department nominees in a signal that she will not take his threats lying down.While Trump may have been able to bully the foppish scions of the New York real estate world and the powerless workers he exploited and robbed, he’s going to find out the hard way that you do not play those games with a United States Senator."
