Senator Chuck Grassley say Skeptics are eating Crow on Donald Trump Trade Deals

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “Skeptics of President Donald Trump’s bold way of negotiating trade ate a bit of crow this month. That includes this Iowa senator,” Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) writes in the Des Moines Register.
 
“I’m not a big fan of tariffs. So, when the president imposed tariffs as leverage in world trade talks, I was skeptical. And yet, here we are starting the fourth year of his presidency and President Trump has succeeded in securing two major trade agreements that are good for America and good for Iowa.”

“Today, President Trump signed into law the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement Implementation Act. This is very good news for Tennessee workers, especially autoworkers, in 88 of our 95 counties.

Americans have stopped listening to the Swamp

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – It’s day 3 of the Senate impeachment trial, and Americans have already tuned out.

Fewer than 12 million people watched the trial’s opening day on Tuesday, compared with about 13 million who viewed the first day of impeachment hearings back in November. That was already a low bar to cross: Day 1 of those hearings drew 32 percent lower ratings than even James Comey’s uneventful Senate testimony in 2017.
