From ‘Day One,’ Chuck Schumer’s plan to defeat Donald Trump was through resistance and sabotage.
Schumer – and the rest of the Democrats – goal was to grind down President Trump’s support and set him up for defeat in 2020.
But Schumer just got some really bad news about how spectacularly this plan failed.
Democrats in the Senate won’t give President Trump their votes on anything.
Because of the chamber’s filibuster rule requiring 60 votes to end the debate if the minority refuses to give unanimous consent and allow nominees or legislation to proceed to an up or down vote, Democrats bottlenecked the Trump agenda.
As hundreds of thousands of illegal alien migrants stream towards the Southern border, Democrats refuse to lift a finger to help Donald Trump close the loopholes that are creating this crisis.
Instead of working to solve the problem, Schumer and the Democrats lobbed pot shots to paint the picture that President Trump was a failure on his signature issue.
During a speech on the Senate floor, Schumer raged about how President Trump cleaning house at the Department of Homeland Security to put in place personnel that would crackdown on illegal immigration somehow made the President look like a bumbling incompetent.
“I hope that the president or some of the people around him will realize that his administration is far from a fine-tuned machine,” Schumer ranted. “It’s a slow-motion disaster machine that the American people see in action every day.”
Democrats figured this plan was full proof.
They saw that when George H.W. Bush went back on his promise to not raise taxes, Bill Clinton easily defeated him in the 1992 campaign.
The left planned that replay for 2020, except this time they would pummel President Trump with attacks on failing on his signature issue of immigration.
But then the bad news poured in.
A brand new Rasmussen poll found 53 percent of registered voters approve of Donald Trump’s job performance.
That was 6 points higher than Barack Obama’s at a similar point during his Presidency right before he cruised to re-election by defeating RINO Mitt Romney.
Rush Limbaugh often says it’s the fake news media that runs the Democrat Party.
In this case, the fake news constantly obsesses over the daily “outrage” and manufactured scandals that they whip up on social media.
Democrats see these talking points gestating online and run with them.
But there’s one problem.
The fake news media exists in its own political bubble.
Most of these stories don’t break through to everyday Americans.
Americans see that the economy is booming, wages are rising, and ISIS is defeated in Syria.
That is what affects their everyday lives.
And on that front, they judge President Trump as having delivered on his promise to “Make America Great Again.”
