President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump shared a lovely message of unity and respect this Christmas of 2019 for all Americans.

“We give thanks for the millions of Americans who come together to care for others with compassion and bring the warmth and bliss of this holy season to our families, our friends, our neighbors, and to those in need,” said the president in part during a recorded message for Americans this Christmas season.

He also stressed the “bonds that unite us” in his message.

Rep. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) — one of the moderate members of the GOP whose views on impeachment are being watched very closely on both sides of the aisle — told a local TV station this week she was “disturbed” at hearing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) say he was going to coordinate closely on any Senate trial or activities on impeachment with the White House, Fox News reported.

“To me,” Murkowski also said, speaking of the Senate’s constitutional responsibility in the process, “it means we have to take that step back from being hand-in-glove with the defense. And so I heard what Leader McConnell had said. I happen to think that that has further confused the process,” as The Hill reported of her remarks.
