Trump Had a Historic Week While Dems Were Distracted by Impeachment

The House of Representatives impeached Donald Trump this week – sort of. Impeachment itself is a process, not a vote, so if the articles of impeachment are never submitted to the Senate, Trump will have not been impeached. Regardless, despite the delays incurred so far, they are likely to make their way to the Senate in January.

Any hopes of removing Trump from office as dead on arrival in the Senate, and ironically, while Democrats have been distracted by the process, Republicans have been scoring major victories.

As the Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard noted at the end of last week (December 13th), Trump had accomplished all the following just that week:

  • An agreement on a new U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade deal (USMCA).
  • A new budget including more than $1.3 billion for a border wall and blocks a government shutdown.
  • House approval of the U.S. Space Force, a brand-new branch of the military.
  • Government family leave that will be a model for a proposal for the public.
  • Tentative agreement on trade with China.
  • Approval of Trump’s 50th federal appeals judge.
  • Confirmation of a new Food and Drug Administration chief.
  • The signing of a pro-Israel anti-Semitism executive order.

And as this “impeachment week” closes to an end, Trump has racked up even more victories, including:

Not bad for a week that Democrats expected to be a stain on the Trump presidency.

They’ve lost the narrative on impeachment – and it’s not going to look any better for them once the Senate shoots down their dreams for good.
