“This is the most upside-down session I’ve seen in 23 years,” said Representative Walter Jones, a North Carolina Republican. “It’s just like every day is a day of confusion, and I put it all on the White House.”…

Some Republicans said they’re afraid of “getting omni-ed” — a reference to Trump’s last-minute threat in March to veto this year’s spending bill, known as an omnibus, that took months to negotiate. He ultimately signed it only after conservatives scrambled to explain why they backed such an expensive bill and why it didn’t fully fund Trump’s wall on the U.S. border with Mexico.

Jones said he “never will forget” the time in mid-2017 when news reports said Trump told senators in a private meeting that the House Republican’s health-care bill was “mean” — just weeks after the president and House members held a jubilant Rose Garden celebration of its passage. The bill went nowhere in the Senate.
