In a new Op-Ed and segment for Fox News, Steve Hilton argues “the impeachment is a joke” and compares President Trump’s accomplishments with a historic trade deal to Nancy Pelosi wasting time with her impeachment stunt.
On Wednesday, the day after Democrats’ debate in Iowa, we saw what has to be one of the most stunning political contrast of all time.
As I was watching, I put out this tweet, President Trump signing a historic trade deal while Nancy Pelosi was yucking it up with her pathetic impeachment pens. In my usual measured way, I called her a “divisive, spiteful, hate-filled charlatan.
And in case you think that was over the top, look at what she actually said.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.: He has been impeached. He’s been impeached forever. They can never erase that.
“Impeached forever.” There’s the contrast. Pelosi’s stunts versus Trump results. Americans can see what’s going on. Look what happened when the president and first lady entered the stadium for the CFP National Championship game last week. They entered to thunderous cheers from the crowd.
It was the sound of Americans who are proud of their president because of what he is doing for their country. Proud of the Soleimani strike, the first time Iran’s murderous regime has been seriously confronted by America for 40 years.
Proud of the China tariffs, too — the first time any Western leader has stood up to them. This week, they signed a phase one trade deal over $30 billion in U.S. agricultural exports, more than $50 billion for energy, over $70 billion for manufacturing. Even more important, finally, protection for our company’s intellectual property and a pledge from China to stop the competitive devaluations that previously gave them an unfair trade advantage.
This week, the president will sign the USMCA, just passed by the Senate, which affects 40 percent of our trade. Our farmers will now be able to sell more dairy products to Canada. American patents and trademarks will be better protected. And above all, the USMCA is fantastic news for our auto workers, with new rules to prevent them from being undercut by cheap foreign labor. It is the most pro-worker trade deal in history, a massive boost for our economy, which will create hundreds of thousands of new jobs.
