“We are as vocal as we need to be,” said Fudge, “but no one wants to take our side because they think we are hurting our President. We support this President more than anyone supports this President. They have to stop pinning us against each other and let us do our job, and let him do his. But we have to put pressure on the White House to make sure that are constituents are represented.
