Democrats are determined to make the next Trump. They are the reason that he became President. More of their special flavor of craziness is only going to create a larger movement against them. I feel pretty safe in saying that because they will never listen to anything of the sort.

Trump had some good ideas as well as some real clunkers. If he had just not acted like a deranged demagogue, he might have had a successful two-term presidency.

$18 trillion in debt.

Covid-19 shutdowns destroying the economy.

Pelosi's fixation is yet another impeachment of Trump. Between the Russian Collusion hoax, the Joe Biden Burisma impeachment and now this impeachment attempt; it proves the Democrat Party is terrified of the Trump movement.

Foreign investors see the civil war brewing in the U.S. started by the Communist Democrats and Corporate media and start pulling their investments out of U.S. markets and treasury bonds.

U.S. will then enter hyper-inflation and the Great Depression Round II.

Keep pouring gasoline on the fire Speaker Pelosi and CNN; you will soon blow up America and American's livelihood, jobs, and security.

I don't know why Kareem is mad at the chiefs. He's the one who assaulted a woman and lied about it.
