How about the pressure to carry out their constituents desires and voting in accordance?

Like the big bully he is, he goes after Lisa Murkowski for voting nay on the motion to begin debate on repealing Obamacare. Every senator needs respect, regardless of his or her opinion on any specific issue. Rather than shaming someone on twitter, Trump should be trying his best reach out to all senators, Democrats, Republicans, independents, to craft something that works for as many people as possible. No senator should feel pressured by anyone to carry out anyone's agenda. Every senator should be free to vote their conscience without facing any shaming from anyone.

I don't respect any of our government officials
Murkowski dismissed the president’s attacks in an interview with MSNBC.
"We're here to govern. We're here to legislate,” she said. “We're here to represent the people who sent us here. And so every day shouldn't be about campaigning. Every day shouldn't be about winning elections. How about just doing a little bit of governing around here? That's what I'm here for."
The Trump administration threatened to block federal aid to Alaska in an effort to bully one of the Republican senators opposed to the current Senate GOP push to roll back the Affordable Care Act, according to a report by the Alaska Dispatch News.
The news site reports that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke on Wednesday called Alaska Sens. Lisa Murkowski and Dan Sullivan with a warning that Murkowski’s vote “had put Alaska's future with the administration in jeopardy.”
