Washington Post provides an inside look at McCarthy’s relationship with Trump

In a story published Sunday, The Washington Post examines the relationship between Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Bakersfield) and President Donald Trump, and the article makes it clear that McCarthy is a go-to man for the president in Congress.

According to The Post: McCarthy, the No. 2 House Republican, helped forestall an intraparty war during Trump’s campaign, smoothing over tensions between the Republican front-runner and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.), who repeatedly clashed with Trump on matters of style and substance.

The article says that McCarthy and Trump have built an important relationship as the president works with Congress on an ambitious agenda that includes repealing the Affordable Care Act and immigration reform. The article details Trump’s outreach to McCarthy in February of 2016 after the GOP leader in the House of Representatives said he would support a Trump presidency.

Here’s a look at some of McCarthy’s supportive comments directed at the president:
