It’s no secret that President Donald Trump isn’t happy with Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski over her recent health care votes. Here he is after Murkowski’s vote against a motion to proceed last week:
Senator @lisamurkowski of the Great State of Alaska really let the Republicans, and our country, down yesterday. Too bad!

After that vote, there were reports that Trump threatened federal funds to Alaska in retaliation:

Trump called her out again when the second vote failed a few days later, although not by name this time:
3 Republicans and 48 Democrats let the American people down. As I said from the beginning, let ObamaCare implode, then deal. Watch!
