President Donald Trump on Sunday morning, Nov. 24, continued to blast House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Democrats for withholding a series of important issues for the American people.
“Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, AOC, and the rest of the Democrats are not getting important legislation done, hence, the Do Nothing Democrats,” the president tweeted.
“USMCA, National Defense Authorization Act, Gun Safety, Prescription Drug Prices, & Infrastructure are dead in the water because of the Dems!” he added.

President Trump on Nov. 19, criticized the House speaker for allowing legislators to meet in Congress over the impeachment inquiry instead of voting for a renewed North American free trade agreement, which was introduced last year. The president said Pelosi was an “overrated” and “incompetent” woman for not approving the U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade agreement.
On Nov. 20, President Trump also lashed out Pelosi for putting the trade deal with Canada and Mexico at risk. The president noted Mexico and Canada are “ready to flee” from USMCA trade deal after waiting for six months to be approved.
“Nancy Pelosi will go down as the least productive speaker of the House in history. She is dominated by AOC Plus 3 and the Radical Left. Mexico and Canada, after waiting for 6 months to be approved, are ready to flee—and who can blame them? Too bad!” Trump tweeted last Wednesday.
On Nov. 19, as public hearings played out in front of the House Intelligence Committee, Trump accused Pelosi of holding up the USMCA to secure Democratic support for impeachment.
“The woman is grossly incompetent. All she wants to do is focus on impeachment, which is just a little pipe dream she’s got. And she can keep playing that game,” Trump said during a Cabinet meeting.
“And I’ve been told—and who knows if this is so, but I think it’s so; I have pretty good authority on it—that’s she’s using USMCA, because she doesn’t have the … impeachment votes,” the president continued. “So she’s using USMCA to get the impeachment vote.”
Republicans also blamed Speaker Pelosi and Democrats for their obsession with impeachment that left them with no time to pass important bills for American people.
For *a year* now, @SpeakerPelosi has promised she was on a “path to yes” on USMCA.
… we’re still waiting.
Democrats’ obsession with impeachment has left them with NO TIME to work on issues important to the American people.
