You may not have heard about the successes that President Donald Trump had this week, what with all the relentless media coverage about impeachment.
Indeed, this is one of the reasons Democrats are pushing impeachment and have been on some level since Trump was elected.
Tie Trump up, occupy him, impair his ability to get things done and undermine him in the eye of Americans.
It’s the policy they’ve employed, rather than actually pushing any policy positions of their own.
And it’s had some success. But that’s also a problem for them. All Americans see is them pushing impeachment, not anything that will ultimately help Americans.
Meanwhile, even CNN has had to admit Trump’s success in pushing his agenda items and promises to voters, even in the face of the Democratic efforts against him.
Here’s John King, one of the few who seems to be willing to acknowledge Trump achievements – a first step in the U.S. China trade deal, the USMCA deal, government spending bill and the House Defense Reauthorization bill that even includes money for his Space Force.

Both he and the Wall Street Journal’s Catherine Lucey point out that Trump had succeed with “long-held priorities” and had a “huge list of achievements” which everyone would be talking about, except for impeachment.
Add to that the vast reduction in people crossing the border because of Trump’s efforts with interdiction and dealing with Mexico. He even has Mexico “paying for the wall” by essentially being the wall, in large part, with them stopping people passing through.
At the end of the day, it’s a political impeachment and Trump will be acquitted in the Senate.
So it’s these achievements that will last. It’s these achievements that will deliver benefits for America.
