Nancy thought she had the upper hand – then Donald turned the tables!
It’s been a crazy day, to say the least.
This morning, Pelosi and her House Democrats took the plunge. She announced the articles of impeachment against Trump. Two articles accusing Trump of “abuse of power” and “obstruction of Congress.”
Neither mention the so-called “quid-pro-quo” or “bribery” accusations the Democrats have been claiming since September.
Neither are criminal charges, casting doubt that these can be considered “high crimes and misdemeanors” according to the Constitution.
But soon after Pelosi announced her party was trying to take down the president, she changed her tune.
After delaying crucial legislation for over a year, Pelosi signals her support in a big win for Trump.
From Fox Business:
The United States, Mexico and Canada have reached a historic trade deal.
“There is no question, of course, that this trade agreement is much better than NAFTA,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said at a press conference announcing her caucus’s support of the agreement…
A House vote, delayed as Democrats fought to improve enforcement mechanisms after winning a majority in the chamber in November 2018, is slated for next week. The modifications had delayed Congressional approval, raising the possibility that the deal might not be ratified this year since Congress adjourns Dec. 20, and prompted criticism from President Trump and his allies.
Pelosi signaled that the House will finally vote on the USMCA trade agreement. This deal had been announced over a year ago.
It will replace the terrible NAFTA—a trade deal approved by Congress and President Bill Clinton back in the 90s.
Only Donald Trump was able to get rid of NAFTA and replace it with something much better. Now, it seems, Pelosi is trying to get partial credit for this landmark deal.
Really? She and her Democrats spent a year obstructing. She refused to sign off on this deal last year, which would have given us more time to see it’s positive impact on our economy.
But now, after she announces her partisan and politically-motivated impeachment, she’s trying to win over Americans?
Nice try, lady.
And President Trump set the record straight.
“President @realDonaldTrump has fought for better trade deals since day one. House Democrats have finally acquiesced to the will of the American people and agreed to work with him. It’s time to put American workers and industries first and get USMCA over the finish line!”
Today will mark two things: the death of the Democratic Party and a major victory for the U.S. economy.
Pelosi’s impeachment circus will doom Democrats, come 2020. Her support for USMCA is too little, too late.
And trying to take credit for it? Ridiculous.
But getting is passed is yet another achievement for Trump, who will go on to win another term in office.
Maybe Pelosi should have worked with Trump in the first place, instead of pushing this bogus impeachment?
SHARE to thank Trump, not Pelosi, for getting USMCA done!
