Nancy Pelosi has had one of the worst years imaginable.
Having failed to stop President Trump’s work on the border wall and proving unable to keep Democrats from throwing their 2020 chances away by backing impeaching the President, Pelosi just stumbled into another disaster that left her reeling.
And now, she just humiliated herself with one awful move.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi may be wishing she had never seen her party re-take control of the House of Representatives in the first place.
Because since taking office, Pelosi has been dealt with defeat after defeat.
Her party failed to block the President’s agenda when it came to building a wall with Mexico and pushing back against illegal immigration, they failed to impeach him from office, and they even failed to nail the President to the wall using the Robert Mueller Russia Investigation.
And now, Pelosi just got even more bad news.
“House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi criticized U.S. treatment of migrants during a visit to Guatemala, and raised doubts about whether the Central American country could cope with a migration deal agreed with the Trump administration,” reports Reuters.
This may seem like an innocuous story, but Pelosi knows how humiliating this is.
Because while she is visiting Central America, she is completely powerless to stop the President from negotiating with foreign powers to enact his America First Agenda.
And that agenda includes cracking down on illegal immigration from Central America and elsewhere.
Reuters reports, “Pelosi, a Democrat, was visiting Central America on Thursday with a bipartisan congressional delegation just as the region was coming under pressure from U.S. President Donald Trump to do more to stop migrants reaching the United States.”
And the President is already scoring victories in Central America.
“Under the threat of economic sanctions, Guatemala late last month struck a deal with Trump to make the country a so-called ‘safe third country.’ The accord will require migrants to seek asylum in Guatemala rather than in the United States,” adds Reuters.
Under the Constitution, Pelosi can do absolutely nothing to stop any of it either.
Which means that the only thing she can do is give press conferences complaining about what the President is doing and hoping that the media will pay her more attention than they will the President’s diplomatic victories.
But aside from complaining to the press, Pelosi’s only option to rein in the President is to impeach him, which is something she is still waffling on because she knows that impeachment would doom Democrats to defeat in the 2020 elections.
“Immigration, one of Trump’s signature issues in the 2016 presidential campaign, is already shaping up as a central issue in the November 2020 election,” concludes Reuters.
The President is busy delivering on his promises while Pelosi is busy complaining about his successes to the press because she knows there is nothing else she can do.
Do you think the President is right to enforce America’s immigration laws?
