The Trump Effect: When you're in trouble, make a deal!

It's just another form of bribery:

“We are going to be doing a major middle income tax cut if we take back the House, and we will be talking about that sometime later,” he said earlier this month. Democrats now run the House, while Republicans control the Senate.

The new cut, the president said, would be “mostly devoted to middle income who have really been big beneficiaries of the (last tax cut) that we did which was the largest in the history of our country.”

Of course that second thing is a lie, which should be obvious to his target audience. Unfortunately, their capacity for detecting the truth is strained, to say the least. But it's the first sentence that is just one more example of Trump's complete lack of ethics: He's trying to bribe voters to rid him of the Democrats who are now Impeaching him. I'm not "reading between the lines" there, it's obvious. So now your question is, "Steve, the Impeachment process will be long over by November 2020, how can the two be connected?" Public opinion polls are being done every other day about Impeachment, and public opinion will alter the behavior of Congress, if it's strong enough.
