Joe Manchin III in his own backyard Wednesday for voting against President Trump's tax cuts, telling voters that their state "deserves better in Washington".

Even Trump's immigration proposal has received a lukewarm reception from Republicans in Congress because it includes a path to citizenship for an estimated 1.8 million people residing in the USA illegally. President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence are both scheduled to speak at the conference.

Much of what President Trump outlined Tuesday night - paid family leave, overhauling the criminal justice system's sentencing laws and reducing the cost of prescription drugs - are proposals loaded with opposition from the conservative wing of the party and are unlikely to find GOP champions on Capitol Hill. He said the lawmaker voted against the tax cuts even after looked him in the eye during a visit to the state and asked him to support the measure.

Pence also took advantage of the location to launch an attack on West Virginia's Democratic Sen. The issues that would be the focus of discussions at the retreat, including the president's infrastructure plan and foreign policy issues like the defeat of ISIS, would be continuing challenges in 2018.

There's reason for Republicans to worry about the extent to which they'll get support from the White House: As Pence acknowledged, historical trends suggest they will lose seats, and possibly their congressional majorities, in November's elections. Now that might make Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi pretty happy, but West Virginia needs to let him know you expect better from Joe.

Pence said these changes won't happen overnight but encourages West Virginians to not lose hope. "Vote no Joe", as the vice-president phrased it, was also the subject of a couple of Tweets following the speech.

From Worldwide International, Pence went to The Greenbrier Resort for a dinner at the start of the Republican Congressional Retreat.

"I think the Democrats were wrong in not showing respect", Manchin said. Joe Manchin, the state's only Democratic senator, who is running for reelection this year, for voting against the recent GOP tax-cut legislation.

"When it came to cutting taxes, Joe voted no", Pence said.

Manchin responded to Pence in a statement, saying the vice president's attacks are why "Washington sucks". "I'm disappointed in his comments but will continue to work to make Washington work so West Virginia and our country work".
