‘The Woman Is Grossly Incompetent’: Trump Slams Pelosi for Focusing on Impeachment

During a Cabinet meeting on Tuesday, President Donald Trump lashed out at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for focusing on the impeachment inquiry.

Trump expressed his outrage that Pelosi had yet to bring his new trade agreement, the United States-Mexico-Canada-Agreement (USMCA), to the House floor for a vote.

“We have to get USMCA signed; Nancy Pelosi can’t get it off her desk. She just can’t do it. The Democrats want to have it; the unions want it, the farmers want it, the manufacturers want it. I think the woman is grossly incompetent. And we’re having a problem because Mexico and Canada are calling, saying, ‘What’s going on?’ And it’s sitting on her desk. She doesn’t need Democrats cause the Democrats are going to vote for it. All she has to do is put it up for a vote.”

Watch his comments below:

Trump railed against her for dragging out the ratification process despite signaling support for the pact.

“She’s said for months now, oh well no, she likes it, she wants it, she likes it, she wants it. The woman is grossly incompetent. All she wants to do is focus on impeachment — which is just a little pipe dream she’s got.”

He charged that Pelosi has been leveraging the USMCA to win over impeachment votes in her caucus.

However, Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas) told the Washington Examiner on Tuesday that Pelosi is holding up the trade deal to build support for it, adding that currently there is not enough support. He said he is hopeful that it will pass the House in December.

“I think there has to be some internal dynamics within the party that have to be addressed, but I think we are almost there to go. I feel good that we are going to do it in December.”

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) blasted Pelosi and his Democratic colleagues last week for not bringing the USMCA to the House floor for a vote, saying they’re too focused on impeachment and are ignoring other legislative duties.

“We would only be stronger as a nation in our negotiations with China if we passed United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement. But none of that is taking place.”

Pelosi said she hopes to pass the USMCA this year, she has signaled in recent weeks that the House is “on a path to yes,” and that the vote could come soon.

Isn’t holding out a vote on the “House Floor” for the USMCA, which would benefit the entire USA, some form of “BRIBARY” or “Quid Pro Quo”……..(just say’n)?

Nancy is not strong enough to stand up to the newbies who are pulling her around by the nose. Nancy should be the one with the heart attack, because she has so much stress trying to keep congress in line. Time for her to say ’SIT DOWN AND BE QUIET!’

We want to pass it but not until we’re done with this nearing 4 year long goal to hinder or remove Trump. This should be an eye opener to anyone who’s not s sheep. The Democrats have made it clear they would harm the populace if it meant Trump went down also especially Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff. I can’t belt people aren’t seeing this shit or refuse to acknowledge it because they hate Trump.

Democrats are beyond unhinged. They are the most dishonest,manipulating people I have ever seen. Schiff is scum. I am sure he would take this as a compliment.

It’s a positive action. So Democrats don’t want anything to do with it. The last positive(though misguided) action by a Democrat was President Obama pushing his Obamacare.
