House Democrats upset Trump shelved “gun violence” proposals


Political actions have political consequences.

President Donald Trump is said to have shelved all “gun violence” talk after speaking to his political advisors, a smart move considering that he needs to shore up his base of support as House Democrats continue to push impeachment proceedings.

How could Democrats not see that their solely political move to impeach Trump would not backfire on them, by giving Trump a reason to the plug on the one political issue both Republicans and Democrats supported?

Republicans warned that if Democrats blindly put all their political eggs in the impeachment of Trump, there would be significant blowback against them, and put at risk chance they had to make gains in both chambers of Congress, not to mention winning the White House, in jeopardy.

Florida Rep. Ted Deutch (D), one of the loudest gun violence advocates, recently presented President Trump with a Marjorie Stoneman Douglass wristband commemorating the school shooting, and asked him to “work toward bipartisan solutions to save lives.”

Trump said he wanted to pass bipartisan legislation to address the gun violence issue, but that was before House Democrats, namely Rep. Deutch, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Rep. Jerry Nadler, and others, pushed forward their politically-driven impeachment inquiry.

Rep. Deutch has been front-and-center in calling for the president’s impeachment and is now crying foul that his legacy issue has been tabled or scrapped altogether by Trump.
