Hidden by impeachment: One of Trump’s 'best weeks yet'

Remember when I said that Trump was laying an impromptu trap for Dems back when the WB complaint broke? The snap of that trap was Trump releasing the transcript, getting ahead of the Democrats. Actually, I think I might have suggested that Trump got inside the Dems' OODA Loop, which he did. 

 

Lib/Dem/Progs have never understood Trump and never mastered how to deal with him. Every time they think "we've go him now" Trump seems to seize the narrative and meld a combination of low favorability of his detractors, their with facts-mostly-on-his-side into a winning strategy. His combination of linguistic kill-shots, repetition of his talking points and indefatigable spirit leads him to winning the day. Short attention spans of most Americans helps. 

 

He did it with Mueller. He is doing it with impeachment and, as shown below, over time will have THE winning argument next summer. 

 

Best line from the following article, beyond the list of accomplishments this week:

 

“Perhaps, for now, what he accomplished this week will be overshadowed by the impeachment, but by next summer, the impeachment may be seen as mean-spirited and partisan, and the string of victories will add to his incredible list of victories going into reelection season....” 

Hidden by impeachment: One of Trump’s 'best weeks yet'

While the media and his critics focused on the bitterly divided House impeachment hearings, President Trump this week collected the most agenda wins yet, policy victories, including some backed by Democrats, that bolster arguments he’s making for reelection, according to advisers and analysts.

 

From adding judges to foreign policy, trade, immigration, defense spending, and China, Trump added several more achievements he will tout when he hosts his next campaign rally, standing in front of a 2020 “Promises Kept” sign.

 

"It was one of his best weeks yet," said a key White House adviser.

 

One of his pollsters, John McLaughlin, joked that if public anger at impeachment continues to grow, worried Democrats might get in line to pass more of his agenda to give them protection in their reelections next year.

 

“Democrats in states and districts the president won are at serious risk if they vote for impeachment. So they are rushing to vote for the president’s popular positions,” he said, adding, “If [House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi and [Senate Minority Leader Chuck] Schumer keep pressing impeachment, it’s likely the president will get his entire agenda passed and reelected in a landslide.”

 

Added to the list of accomplishments this week:

 

  • An agreement on a new U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade deal.
  • 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.

 

Plus, advisers noted, Wall Street hit another record, and Pelosi conceded that on impeachment, "It’s been going on 22 months — two and a half years, actually."

 

And, the advisers added, with impeachment likely, the president was assured by McConnell that the Senate would move fast on a trial that will end in acquittal and might include the support of two Senate Democrats, according to Sen. Rand Paul.

 

“There is one world where the mainstream media is covering impeachment, but there is another world where Trump is racking up a myriad of accomplishments, many of which have the support of the same Democrats who want to remove him from office,” said political communications strategist Ron Bonjean.

 

A GOP adviser said, “President Trump and the Republicans are an irresistible force surging over, around, and through the gelatinous Democrats — a growing number of whom are realizing daily that what they're doing is seen by the public as trivial and senseless. Just think of what could be accomplished for our country if the loony Left wasn't so obsessed with destroying Trump.”

 

Trump biographer Doug Wead also took note of the president’s actions in the shadow of impeachment.

 

“Perhaps, for now, what he accomplished this week will be overshadowed by the impeachment, but by next summer, the impeachment may be seen as mean-spirited and partisan, and the string of victories will add to his incredible list of victories going into reelection season,” he said.

 

Wead, who spent months inside the White House interviewing the president and top aides, said that he hadn’t been surprised by Trump’s aggressive fight on impeachment and his campaign to rack up wins.

 

“During impeachment, any other president would retreat into the bunker and be consumed with defense. Endlessly gaming various scenarios. Instead, Trump, the businessman, is looking for a way to use it to his advantage,” he said.

 

“He is the master magician, waving one hand to distract, while with the other hand, he makes the trick work. In this case, the Democrats provided this unwanted distraction, but he clearly seized on the moment,” Wead added.

Yeah, regarding the trend, the latest Fox News poll was released today. Regarding Trump's Job Performance, since the last poll in late October, his Approval has risen 3% and his Disapproval has fallen 4%, for a new Approval gain of 7%. With impeachment nearly done, this trend in job performance means far more than any impeachment polls going forward. 

 

Fox News Poll: Trump job approval ticks up, views on impeachment steady

 

Weeks of congressional hearings and debate have failed to move the electorate on impeachment, according to the latest Fox News Poll. At the same time, approval of President Trump’s job performance has climbed three points.

 

Currently, 45 percent of voters approve of the job Trump’s doing, up from 42 percent in late October. Over half, 53 percent, disapprove. That lands the president almost exactly where he started the year, as 43 percent approved and 54 percent disapproved in January.

Doesn’t matter what El Presidente accomplishes, impeachment or not, the DNC and our MSM will find a way to suppress it.  Another damning article on the First Lady’s choice of footwear always seems to work.

Sorry, but nobody that is a conservative and favors a smaller less intrusive government should be happy with this.

That was Ivanka’s little idea.

 


 

Trump should follow the historical precedent set by real presidents, and launch cruise missiles to kill innocents in foreign lands on the eve of the House vote. In doing this he could show Democrats that he actually gets it, and is completely legitimate. Do the right thing Mr President.

I watched the signing of the Anti-Sematic EO.  One of Trump's finest speeches.  And a host of Jewish democrats applauding loudly.

The lefty media wouldn't dare have shown this as it would expose their claim that Trump is just a raving lunatic.

Changes not my sentiment towards it.

 

Your deflection is noted.

NY Times has written no fewer than four pieces blasting Trump for this EO
