    Trump battles with Democrats as impeachment pressure grows

    Trump battles with Democrats as impeachment pressure grows


    • The latest: President Trump said he can't work with Democratic leaders while they were pursuing investigations into him and his administration. Trump ended a meeting with them on infrastructure lasted just 5 minutes.
    • Meanwhile, on impeachment: Thereare growing tensions asHouse Speaker Nancy Pelosi toes the line between Democrats frustrated by their stonewalled investigations into President Trump and... President Trump.



    Lindsey Graham's message for Trump: "Rise above it if you can"Sen. Lindsey Graham, a strong Trump ally in Congress, just tweeted that he's "never seen anybody treated this way."
    The tweet comes just hours after Trump held a surprise speech in the Rose Garden, where he slammed Democrats and their pursuit of investigations into him.
    I have a lot of sympathy for President Trump. I've never seen anybody treated this way.

    All I would say is try to rise above it if you can. The country is looking for leadership. We need leadership.
    — Lindsey Graham (@LindseyGrahamSC) May 22, 2019
    Graham told CNN that he is sympathetic to Trump’s frustration but that the President should rise above and get some things done on spending and infrastructure.



    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Last night, Trump sent a message to the two leaders of the Democrats, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. In this message, Trump made it clear to them that if they refuse to support a new trade pact with Mexico and Canada that he would not do anything regarding passing an infrastructure bill. This is how a gangster operates. But then, Trump has lived his entire life as a gangster.

    Now, Trump has threatened to do absolutely nothing unless all the investigations just go away. For people that weren't involved much in politics back in 1998, there were ongoing impeachment investigations in the House and Senate against Bill Clinton. Nevertheless, Bill Clinton was still open to working with Congress to pass some very significant legislation including a trade agreement with China, a summit with Putin and negotiating the Wye River Memorandum which resulted in an agreement highlighted by a three-stage withdrawal of Israeli troops from the West Bank.

    Trump is abandoning the duties he swore to uphold on the day he was inaugurated. This isn't The Apprentice, this isn't a television show that he can manipulate and produce to his liking. This is the US government he's messing with, and our lives and the well being and safety of this country.

    Impeached for what exactly?

    All this impeachment talk isn't going to stop the release of the IG report or stop Trump from declassifying those FBI FISA applications

    Re: Trump battles with Democrats as impeachment pressure grows

    Trump's refusal to work with Dems because they're putting a vice on his nuts, while not unexpected, is absolutely absurd. He is putting himself and his need to feel superior over the needs of the country.

    Time for a new potus that puts US over THEMSELVES.

    Hideous obese demagogue.

    Do you believe the Dems are talking about impeachment because of that? One has nothing to do with the other.

    They’ve been screaming impeachment since the day he was elected. Spent 35 million dollars on a phoney investigation into Russia. There is just one damn phoney charge after another and they won’t stop until Guam tips over. Get the hell on with it.

    Phony investigation? 34 indictments, including 25 for directly interfering in the election. Would you rather have all that left alone, not uncovered?
    What a strange position to take.
