Ever since the Democrats kicked off their bogus impeachment witch hunt, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has failed to bring up a vote on several bills that would actually help the American people.
Rather than put politics aside and help the country, Pelosi and her radical allies remain fixated on trying to harm the president at all costs.
But after Trump called her out this week, Pelosi went public and said she’s “trying to get it done.”
Trump has been calling on the House to pass his massive trade agreement with Mexico and Canada, but Pelosi refuses to put it to a vote.
Speaking to reporters in the Oval Office, Trump said that Pelosi was “incapable of moving it” and said she will be to blame if the agreement fall apart.
“It’s her fault, not mine,” if Mexico and Canada pull out, the president said.
“It is sitting on Nancy Pelosi’s desk. She’s incapable of moving it, it looks like,” Trump told reporters. “She hasn’t wanted to do it because, I understand, a couple of the unions, the AFL-CIO, they are asking her to hold it for a while because it’ll make Trump look bad.”
In response to Trump’s comments, Pelosi said that a deal on passage of the trade agreement is “near,” but that she wants the administration to “commit to specific language” meeting Democrats’ demands.
“We are within range of a substantially improved agreement for America’s workers,” Pelosi. “Now, we need to see our progress in writing from the [U.S.] trade representative for final review.”
Pelosi told reporters last month that the House is proceeding with work on passing it — but like a typical D.C. swamp creature, nothing has happened.
The USMCA, the long-awaited replacement for NAFTA, has been waiting for months on end for Pelosi to bring to the House floor for a vote.
Instead of doing her job, she launched another witch-hunt that does absolutely nothing but waste more taxpayer money on their latest witch hunt.
Perhaps she is stalling because it would give the president another massive victory heading into the 2020 election.
The United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement is one of Trump’s landmark victories and will result in tens of billions of dollars flowing back into the United States.
It ends the 30-year-old NAFTA trade agreement, which led to countless American jobs disappearing.
One of Trump’s biggest campaign promises was to fix that problem with a new, better trade deal — which is exactly what the USMCA is.
Beyond that, this is the latest example of how pathetic Democrats are.
Democrats haven’t done anything since Trump was elected excerpt launched endless witch hunts solely aimed at thwarting the president’s agenda.
By refusing to pass this trade deal in the House, Pelosi is sending the message that she does not want America to succeed.
