President Donald Trump isn’t going to just let Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s no vote on Tuesday’s health care motion go. Early Wednesday, Trump took to Twitter to express displeasure with Murkowski’s vote. By that afternoon, each of Alaska’s two Republican senators had received a phone call from Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke letting them know the vote had put Alaska’s future with the administration in jeopardy. The response follows Trump’s no-holds-barred style of governing, even when it comes to his own party. It is his first strike of retaliation against Murkowski, however, despite her tendency to stray from the party line and the president’s priorities. Alaska Sen. Dan Sullivan said the call from Zinke heralded a “troubling message.”
