My latest update from the campaign trail.
IMPEACHMENT CIRCUS: Nineteen minutes after he was sworn in as America’s 45th President, The Washington Post published this headline on its website: “The campaign to impeach President Trump has begun.”
For nearly 3 years, they shoved the Russia collusion hoax. Now that that’s failed, they are effectively shutting down Congress—yet again—over their impeachment sham. Meanwhile, Speaker Pelosi refuses to hold a vote on USMCA to replace NAFTA—despite growing pressure from manufacturers, labor unions, farmers, and workers.
Democrats refuse work with President Trump to lower medicine prices, rebuild our country’s crumbling infrastructure, or fix the many problems in our immigration system. If House Democrats were as committed to helping Americans succeed under President Trump as they are to tearing him down, imagine where we could be now.
IMPEACHMENT: In the 24 hours after the first public hearing, Donald Trump’s campaign had one of its best ever fund raising days, adding $3.1 Million in small dollar donations.
OBAMA: [4:23] – Obama weighs in on 2020 race, says candidates must be ‘rooted in reality’.
DEVAL PATRICK: Former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick has thrown his hat in the ring. “I’m not running to be president of the Democrats. I’m running to be president of the United States. There’s a difference,” he says.
“I’m not talking about a moderate agenda. This is no time for a moderate agenda. I’m talking about being woke, but leaving room for the still waking. I’m talking about what it takes to rebuild a national community.”
That sounded to me like political speak for, “We need to be nicer to the backward clingers until after we get control again.”
DEMOCRAT DEBATE: Tulsi Gabbard made the cut for the next one, but Julian Castro did not.
TLAIB: The non-partisan Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) has recommended Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and several of her campaign staffers be subpoenaed over payments her campaign made to her to cover living expenses after she was elected. House rules allow candidates to receive salaries only up until the general election.
