Undated: The Tea Party movement is an American fiscally conservative political movement within the Republican Party. Members of the movement have called for lower taxes, and for a reduction of the national debt of the United States and federal budget deficit through decreased government spending.[1][2] The movement supports small-government principles[3][4] and opposes government-sponsored universal healthcare.[5] The Tea Party movement has been described as a popular constitutional movement[6] composed of a mixture of libertarian,[7] right-wing populist,[8] and conservative activism.[9] It has sponsored multiple protests and supported various political candidates since 2009.[10][11][12] According to the American Enterprise Institute, various polls in 2013 estimate that slightly over 10 percent of Americans identify as part of the movement.[1

February 16: Tea party gains voice in Trump’s Cabinet with budget chief

The Senate on Thursday confirmed President Donald Trump’s pick to run the White House budget office, giving the Republicans’ tea party wing a voice in the Cabinet.

Rep. Mick Mulvaney, R-S.C., squeaked through on a 51-49 vote in the Republican-controlled Senate.

Political Journalist Says Both Movements Are A Reaction In Fear Over President

February 28: President Trump has thrown down a major challenge for the tea party and its congressional bloc, known as the Freedom Caucus. He is proposing to Congress a massive budget-busting plan that increases military spending by a whopping $54 billion, slashes domestic programs, and leaves Social Security and Medicare intact. And a significant tax cut will soon be on the way.

This presents a crucial test to the tea party movement that has reshaped American politics since 2008. The most obvious challenge is that Trump has chosen to leave Social Security and Medicare alone, two of the biggest components of the federal budget and two prime targets for conservatives like Speaker Paul Ryan.

October 11: GOP, home to Trump and tea party, decries Dems’ ‘mob rule’

President Donald Trump and Senate Republicans are forecasting nightmarish Democratic “mob rule” to amp up GOP voters for next month’s critical midterm elections, flipping the script from complaints that it’s Trump and the tea party movement who’ve boosted rowdy and divisive tactics to dangerous levels.

Less than a month from voting in which GOP control of Congress is dangling precariously, Republicans are linking comments and actions by Democratic politicians, raucous protesters opposing Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination and even a gunman who shot targeted GOP lawmakers. The message to Republican voters: Democrats are employing radical tactics that are only growing worse.

While the demonstrations were intense and some Republicans reported personal threats, liberal protesters’ tactics were broadly in line with those used by groups on the left and right during particularly passionate moments in Washington. The confrontational style harkened back to protests by the conservative tea party, which included angry face-offs with lawmakers and a massive Capitol demonstration far larger than last week’s rallies.

November 7: In all, Democrats picked up at least seven of 26 GOP-held gubernatorial [governhor] seats, a shift that could complicate Trump’s re-election hopes and alter the nation’s political landscape for the next decade.

The victories tamed a long, Tea Party-fueled winning streak that had given Republicans control of 33 governor’s mansions, the most since 1928. That success became the party’s biggest vulnerability, with Republicans defending nearly three times as many governor’s mansions this year as Democrats.

November 7: Under-reported election result: Overwhelmingly, Americans rejected Trump

A substantial majority of Americans yesterday went to the polls and pulled the lever for candidates who opposed President Trump and his policies. Even in the elections for the U.S. Senate, where the GOP gained at least three seats, 10 million more people voted Democratic than voted Republican.

The big news of the night, however, was the practical result of the national outpouring of voters who rejected the fear and racism put forward by the GOP. Democrats, even before the final reports from 14 districts, had already piled up a margin of close to 30 seats in the House of Representatives. More voters propelled this “blue wave” than the numbers that carried into office the infamous Tea Party Republicans during the 2010 midterms of the Obama administration. Judging by initial numbers, this year’s election could see the highest turnout in history for any midterm in the U.S.
