THE WHITE HOUSE – FEBRUARY 05, 2020

Today, House Democrats’ sham impeachment ended with the full vindication and exoneration of President Trump by the Senate.
 
Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham issued the following statement in part:
 
 
The Senate voted to reject the baseless articles of impeachment, and only the President’s political opponents—all Democrats, and one failed Republican presidential candidate—voted for the manufactured impeachment articles.

In what has now become a consistent tradition for Democrats, this was yet another witch-hunt that deprived the President of his due process rights and was based on a series of lies . . . Throughout this wholly corrupt process, President Trump successfully advanced the interests of the United States and remained focused on the issues that matter to Americans. He spent his time achieving real victories for the people of this country, and the Democrats—once again—have nothing to show for their fraudulent schemes.

 

President Trump’s State of the Union address made his priorities clear: It’s time to put the partisanship in Congress behind us. One of the most important lines from his speech last night reminds our leaders who they’re here to serve. It’s not their donors, it’s not each other, and it’s not the sensationalist corporate media.
 
“Members of Congress: We must never forget that the only victories that matter in Washington are victories that deliver for the American people.”

WATCH: ‘The best is yet to come’
Last night’s State of the Union address was unforgettable, as President Trump told the Great American Comeback Story that’s unfolding across our country.  
 
“Jobs are booming, incomes are soaring, poverty is plummeting, crime is falling, confidence is surging, and our country is thriving and highly respected again,” the President said. “America’s enemies are on the run, America’s fortunes are on the rise, and America’s future is blazing bright.”
 
On the issues that matter most to working families, from fixing our broken trade deals to rebuilding our great military, President Trump has kept his promises.
 
Some of the best examples of those results came from the special guests who joined the President and First Lady last night. Here are just a few of their stories:
 Charles McGee, 100 years old and one of the last surviving Tuskegee Airmen, served our country in three wars: World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. “General McGee, our Nation salutes you,” the President said.
 Amy Williams is a military mother who works full-time while raising two young children. She still finds time to devote countless hours to helping other military families. Last night, President Trump had a surprise: “I am thrilled to inform you that your husband is back from deployment. He is here with us tonight.”
 Tony Rankins is an Army veteran—and a prime example of how the President’s economic policies have life-changing results. Take Opportunity Zones, part of the 2017 tax cuts law: Tony climbed back from homelessness and found a job with a construction company that invests in these distressed communities. “He is now a top tradesman, drug-free, reunited with his family,” President Trump said.
 Carl and Marsha Mueller. Last year, U.S. Special Forces took out the world’s top terrorist, ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The Muellers tragically lost their daughter Kayla at the hands of this vicious killer. In her honor, the U.S. mission was named Task Force 8-14, a reference to Kayla’s August 14th birthday. In the President’s words: “America’s warriors never forgot Kayla—and neither will we.”

Trump Reminds CONGRESS What Matters to AmericaNS

The White House – February 5, 2020

Sen. Marco Rubio: Trump State of the Union Reminds Us of What Matters to America

“President Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday night was a much-needed and refreshing reminder that life does indeed exist outside the Washington bubble,” Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) writes for Fox News.
 
“He spoke to the hundreds of millions of Americans who do not spend each day refreshing their Twitter accounts to find out the latest ‘hot take’ . . .  It is time we focus on what matters to the American people, not to Washington pundits.”

President Trump seized the moment last night with a “powerful, patriotic” State of the Union message to Americans across the political spectrum. “And then House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reinforced his message with her oh-so-symbolic ripping up of the text. What, other than channeling the alienation of the Democratic base from the great American center, was she thinking?” the New York Post editorial board writes.

“President Donald Trump surprised an Army wife during Tuesday’s State of the Union address, bringing her husband home from Afghanistan and directly into the chamber . . . The crowd erupted with cheers and applause as Sergeant Williams walked down the steps to embrace his stunned wife and children,” Virginia Kruta writes for The Daily Caller.

“The jobs market kicked off 2020 in grand fashion, adding 291,000 in private payrolls for the best monthly gain since May 2015 . . . That was well above the 150,000 estimate from economists surveyed by Dow Jones,” Jeff Cox reports for CNBC.

SCHIFF SHAM IN SHAMBLES AS SENATE VOTES TO ACQUIT PRESIDENT TRUMP

The White House – February 4, 2020
Thanks to Trump, America is Winning Like Never Before
“A recap of the past month presents a snapshot of President Trump’s first term. We are stronger and safer, and the ripple effects of renewed prosperity are being felt nationwide. Within a few short weeks, this administration went after notorious terrorists, signed two major trade initiatives, unveiled a Middle East peace plan and gave Americans reassurance that the next century will be ours,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy writes in Fox News.

🚨BREAKING: President Trump’s job approval hits new record high!

“The United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, which recently passed both houses of Congress by overwhelming, bipartisan majorities, has been rightly hailed as one of President Donald Trump’s most historic achievements.” Even better, unlike NAFTA, a sunset clause in USMCA guarantees that it won’t become unbalanced and outdated over time, Senior Advisor Jared Kushner writes for CNBC.

“The politically powerful should not deprive children of a great education, and no child in America should be on a waitlist for success. That is why President Trump has called on Congress to pass Education Freedom Scholarships. The bill currently before Congress is a federal tax credit that would provide families with more educational opportunities,” Joe Grogan, White House Domestic Policy Council Director, writes for Fox News.

President Trump has tapped Georgia pastor Tony Lowden “to be the new ‘reentry czar,’ a position created in the White House to help former inmates find housing, employment and other opportunities to provide ‘second chances’ for success after they leave prison,” Francesca Chambers reports for McClatchy DC.

Crying Wolf on Impeachment
“The impeachment trial of Donald J. Trump is coming down to one big question: Will Democrats, by crying wolf, drown out the more legitimate Republican cry of foul? ‘Foul’ has served as the GOP’s most powerful and honest argument from the first days of these impeachment maneuverings,” Kimberly Strassel writes in The Wall Street Journal.
 
“Democrats broke every standard of due process, transparency and fairness in their House investigation, making a mockery of their constitutional duty.”
“They hid the identity of the original accuser, denying Republicans and the country the ability to judge his motives.”
  “They held secret depositions, barring more than three-quarters of House members, as well as the press and the American public.”
  “They called 18 witnesses, but blocked the president from calling any in his defense.”
“The White House legal team was excluded from the proceedings—prohibited from cross-examining witnesses, denied the ability to introduce any evidence that spoke to the central question of the president’s focus on Ukrainian corruption.

“The kicker: In the end, “Democrats approved two articles of impeachment that failed to identify a crime.”

“President Donald Trump will propose a $42 million budget increase in February to expand support for victims of human trafficking and to boost investigations and prosecutions.” The funding is part of a push by Ivanka Trump to bring more attention to the illegal trade, Michael Wilner reports for McClatchy DC.

“After joining the administration, one of the first assignments I was given by President Trump was to develop a plan to resolve the decades-old Israel-Palestinian conflict. I am pleased to say that, after three years of work, we have made a breakthrough,” Senior Advisor to the President Jared Kushner writes for CNN.

“Democrats have accused President Donald Trump of using the government to go after his political opponents, yet they are doing the very same thing right now on the floor of the U.S. Senate. They have wrongly weaponized the U.S. Constitution in order to go after their political opponent, President Trump. Does their hypocrisy have no shame?” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) write for Fox News.

‘Read the Transcript!’
“Long before Democrats finished making their marathon impeachment case Friday night, momentum had deserted them. The loops of repetition had gone from annoying to unbearable and the wild assertions got even wilder as their talk, talk, talk became a trial of its own,” Michael Goodwin writes in the New York Post.
 
President Trump’s legal team on Saturday “began with something Trump has said repeatedly, including to me when I interviewed him Jan. 7: ‘Read the transcript and you’ll see exactly what it is.'”

House Democrats’ impeachment probe “sounds like something out of Kafka. It would never be tolerated in the U.S. judicial system: no competent judge would bar an accused from attempting to prove his defense; and if one did, any conviction would be reversed on appeal,” former Assistant U.S. Attorney Andrew McCarthy writes for National Review.

“The Democrats’ decision to push through a partisan, politically motivated, sham impeachment that lacked any sort of due process, constitutional basis, evidence, or facts, has and will cause irreparable harm to our country . . .  In reality, the Democrats’ work to take down our duly elected president began years ago,” Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) writes in Greenville News.

“Kobe Bryant, despite being one of the truly great basketball players of all time, was just getting started in life. He loved his family so much, and had such strong passion for the future. The loss of his beautiful daughter, Gianna, makes this moment even more devastating,” President Trump tweeted yesterday. The President’s words came after news broke that the 41-year-old former All-Star and his 13-year-old daughter were among the victims of a helicopter crash in California, Aris Folley reports in The Hill.
