As the old saying goes, even a broken clock is right twice a day. Every so often you will, if you look hard enough find a Democrat that actually makes sense if only for a moment. One prominent New York Democrat is bucking his party’s national trend by highlighting what he sees as President Donald Trump’s accomplishments during his first year in the Oval Office.
As Fox News reported, former New York City Council President Andrew Stein complained about what he termed “Trump derangement” among Democrats calling for Trump’s impeachment or resignation.
The Democrats for Trump chairman was on “Fox & Friends” recently to share his opinion on the divisive president and a divided nation.
“They still haven’t been able to accept that Trump was elected president,” he said.
Stein went on to echo the theories of many Republicans by decrying the “deep state” he said is conspiring against this administration. “There are Clinton-Obama holdovers in the agencies,” he said. “They’re trying to delegitimize this president and they want to impeach him, make no mistake about it.”
Several Democrat lawmakers, including outspoken California U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters, have made unambiguous calls for Trump’s impeachment.
Calling such knee-jerk opposition “nonsense,” Stein claimed that “this president has one of the best records” he had ever seen.
He cited the recent tax reform bill signed into law by Trump as evidence of that record, noting that the country has “already seen the corporations announce expansions, new jobs, bonuses.”
Looking ahead to proposals likely to surface in the coming year, Stein expressed his belief that “it would be a big mistake for the Democrats to resist a good infrastructure bill.”
As for what Trump could be doing better to improve his bipartisan appeal, he had one primary suggestion.
Another New York Democrat, Sen. Charles Schumer, has previously expressed a willingness to work with Trump on specific issues, including an infrastructure investment plan.
