In a speech at the 450th mile of border wall between the US southern border and Mexico in Alamo, Texas, President Trump declared, “Freedom of speech is under assault like never before.” Calling for “calm respect for law enforcement,” the President clearly continued his campaign to make America great again through keeping his promise to build the wall despite overwhelming opposition.
The President reported, “In every region that we’ve built the wall, illegal crossings and drug smuggling have plummeted, absolutely plummeted. In the Rio Grande Valley, crossings have dropped nearly 80 percent. In Yuma, Arizona, illegal entries have been slashed by 90 percent.” Despite much opposition to the wall, even the currently-incomplete wall has decreased illegal border crossings, dropping how much the U.S. has to spend on housing, vaccinating and prosecuting these aliens, not to mention the greatly increased safety the American people enjoy.
In addressing the impeachment proceedings against him by Democrats, he answered, “The impeachment hoax is a continuation of the greatest and most vicious witch hunt in the history of our country and is causing tremendous anger and division, and pain far greater than most people will ever understand, which is very dangerous for the USA, especially at this very tender time.”
Despite President Trump’s repeated statements opposing violence, Democrats and even some Republicans have argued the President should be impeached or face the 25th Amendment that would remove him from power. Vice President Pence made it clear in a letter to Nancy Pelosi Tuesday night he opposes any use of the Amendment. Neither the Amendment nor the impeachment process has much possibility of moving forward within the remaining days of President Trump’s term in office.
In what may have been a veiled remark to Joe Biden, President Trump also noted, “The 25th Amendment is of zero risk to me but will come back to haunt Joe Biden and the Biden administration. As the expression goes, be careful what you wish for.” Some have suggested Biden’s physical or mental capacities could lead to a future application of the 25th Amendment, leading to Vice President-elect Kamala Harris as President.
In a past tweet, President Trump has already mocked the idea, alleging, “Crazy Nancy Pelosi is looking at the 25th Amendment in order to replace Joe Biden with Kamala Harris. The Dems want that to happen fast because Sleepy Joe is out of it!!!”
And in case you missed it, following the President’s COVID-19 diagnosis just weeks before the election, Pelosi invoked the 25th Amendment as a “path for preserving stability if a President suffers a crippling physical or mental problem.” She even claimed, “This is not about President Trump. He will face the judgment of the voters, but he shows the need for us to create a process for future Presidents.”
Once VP Pence made it clear he would not use the 25th Amendment to prematurely remove President Trump from office Nancy Pelosi moved onto last ditch effort #2: filing impeachment charges against President Trump.
President Trump has a week left in his presidency, but Nancy Pelosi is rushing to vote him out of office. Why the rush?
One of the punishments of a successful impeachment, under the Constitution, is that if the person is impeached (and convicted in the Senate), that individual can never hold public office again. Democrats invented a false hope in 2009 that a person could be impeached after they leave office. This was fantasy created by the liberal media in hopes of playing “Gotcha” with George W. Bush, but it has no legal basis behind it whatsoever. You cannot impeach any officer of the state who doesn’t currently hold an office.
That’s part of the reason why Pelosi is in such a rush to impeach Trump. If he leaves office on the 20th, she won’t be able to stop him from immediately launching his 2024 campaign.
A 2024 Trump campaign would be the left’s worst nightmare. Even with being banned from most social media, he could find enough Americans to back another four years to drain the swamp and make America great again.
