Rebekah Mercer's Pro-Trump Group Goes Silent - 2017-07-31
The president is going through a tense policy fight in Washington, the kind that outside groups get involved in to persuade skeptics and give allies cover. But as Trump tries — and, so far, fails — to close a deal with Republicans in Congress to overhaul Obamacare, the group has been absent from television airwaves and Twitter.
Earlier this year, Making America Great launched amid friction at another pro-Trump organization and concerns that outside allies weren't doing enough to amplify the White House message. The new Mercer-backed group quickly spent more than $1 million on ads, including a digital spot that urged senators to back Neil Gorsuch's Supreme Court confirmation, which nearly four months later stands as Trump's biggest achievement.
