Senator John Thune, a GOP leader from South Dakota, stated yesterday, concerning issues Lawmakers are concerned about today, “Seems like we have a little bit of an issue right now. It’s hard to figure how much gets done around here unless the atmospheric changes.” There are multiple deals on the table which need to be discussed and with the “flare up” of President Trump in the meeting on Wednesday, lawmakers are worried how much they can get done after Trump made the statement he “will not work with Democrats until the investigation is over.”
The Infrastructure Deal was the main topic. Lawmakers did not know if he meant just the Infrastructure Deal or the other bills that were on the table. Senator Lindsey Graham gave his input on Fox News this morning on the “Fox & Friends” show. He told the president on the morning show, “Mr. President don’t let the Democrats goad you into not going through with the infrastructure plans. We need infrastructure.”
Graham was one of Trump’s biggest critics in the beginning, but he has now become his biggest cheerleader. He warned the president “not to play into the Democrat’s hands.” Graham told the host of the show, “The best is yet to come. He has got to do infrastructure. Mr. President, don’t let these guys goad you into not doing good things for the country.”
Democrats are accusing Trump of staging the whole tantrum. They claimed he was not “interested in the infrastructure package, and he was just looking for a way out of it.” One would shake their heads in disbelief if they knew how much they made no sense. President Trump and the GOP are more than ready to tackle this deal and come to an agreement because as Graham stated, “We need our roads and everything fixed.” This has become nothing more than a war of words, and the president walked out of the meeting and made the comments he made because the Democrats are so hung up on impeaching him, they will stop at nothing.
Graham touched base on why they are so caught up in the fiasco of impeachment. They want to redo the Mueller case because they believe they will find something that is not there. When the transcripts come out in the open, they will turn their heads as if nothing happened and move on to something else to attack the president instead of doing their jobs. Senator Graham stated he will work on making laws to stop this and never let it happen again. So much time has been wasted with the events around the 2016 elections. Graham stated, “More than 53 percent of Americans want these investigations over with.”
When discussing the Democrats pushing so hard for impeaching the president, Graham told the morning hosts, “There is 80 percent of Congress that wants the president impeached, and they are all Democrats.” He also told the hosts, referring to the 2016 elections, “If you had done what Hillary did, then you would be in jail. How come they did not investigate her? It’s because the Democrats wanted her to win.” One of the hosts replied, “Yes, even the television had her winning the election before the results.” Graham told them, “They are going to get Trump elected by embracing impeachment.” All of their tactics are going to come to light once those transcripts are released and the meeting which was meant for infrastructure was cancelled due to Democrats who are trying to hide their own cover-ups.
There was a glimmer of hope before Wednesday’s incident that Congress and President Trump would have gotten something accomplished. Last month, the president got together with the Democrats to work on a package deal to have the nation’s bridges and roads repaired. The House Speaker and Senate Minority Leader met with the president and wanted a price for the deal. Wednesday morning, this was supposed to be the topic of discussion. Everyone knows how that turned out.
Recently, President Trump went to Louisiana and spoke of how they were going to make sure the I-10 bridge in Lake Charles would be repaired. The crowd erupted in cheers. In Louisiana, it is a bridge known by many, its days are numbered. It is time to put words of war and game playing to rest. We have a president getting the job done, but he cannot do it with people who Senator Graham stated, “have lost their minds.”
