Newt Gingrich says Donald Trump Triumphs at World Economic Forum while Democrats Pursue Baseless Impeachment

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “President Donald Trump’s visit to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland this week was a bigger triumph than anyone could possibly have imagined a year ago,” former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich writes for Fox News.

“The counter-staging of President Trump landing at Davos while the Senate began the trial over his phony impeachment was a Reagan-quality move . . . once again President Trump gave an important, principled speech that was worthy of the leader of the biggest economy and most powerful military in the world.”

Dishonest Impeachment Case

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – Friday, January 24th, 2020, marked the end of House Democrats’ 3-day presentation of their historically weak Articles of Impeachment against President Donald Trump. Saturday, the President had chance to respond to Democrats’ dishonest case. 
 
As expected, the media is going the extra mile to prop up Rep. Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) performance this week. Their hope, much like Schiff’s argument itself, is that if you repeat a lie enough, people might soon forget you don’t have any actual evidence for it.
