Republican leaders have been encouraging the American public to practice patience with the Donald Trump presidency.

The Republican Party faces mid term elections next year and has been working to strengthen its voting base surrounding an uncertain presidency. As of now, more Americans disapprove than approve of the job performance of the Republican President Donald Trump. The TrumpWhite House has found itself constantly being the fodder of newspapers for its infighting and failed policies. Republican leaders also got a scare in the normally red state of Kansas, in which the Republican candidate only won a House seat by a slim margin over their Democratic rival.

Through the first three months of his presidency, Donald Trump, has passed Justice Neil Gorsuch into the U.S. Supreme Court. He has failed, however, to achieve legislative victories such as his immigration and travel ban and the Republican attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act.Republican leaders are asking their voting base to practice patience, waiting at least a year and a half before questioning the 45th President of the United States of America. Many Americans feel as though President Trump is not achieving what he promised on the campaign trail.

"What matters is a record of accomplishment," said Frank Luntz, a Republican pollster who conductedfocus groups of Trump supporters. "People can disagree over the details or the significance of the change, but if you have a record of accomplishment, that fixes everything. .?.?. If you don't, no rhetoric will fix it."
