Why Republican's in Congress Will Not Criticize Trump

Job protection is the first, and perhaps the only, goal of our elected officials. That explains why few Republican members of Congress criticize him.  Almost 90% of Republicans approve of him and they agree with what he has been doing in office.  A negative tweet from Trump would be the kiss  of death for any Republican who hopes to win their next election.  Most of them live is safe districts but they will face a challenge in the GOP primary if they get on the bad side of Trump.

It's hard to believe that Trump has such high approval ratings among Republicans when so many of his statements and policies have been criticized even by conservative columnists in The Washington Post and the New York Times.  Trump has successfully taught his base to ignore the mainstream media.  They get most of their information from sources aligned with Trump.
