Nancy Pelosi creates whiplash with decision to work with Trump on USMCA

Nancy Pelosi has called President Trump a “coward,” and “insecure imposter,” and “so much worse than Nixon.”

She’s accused him of being “lawless” and has said his actions “Threaten our national security, violate our Constitution and undermine the integrity of our elections.”

She’s accused him of bribery, abuse of power, and obstruction of justice. She’s attacked his motives, smeared his character and lied about his actions.

She’s also working with him. The Hill reports:

House Democrats on Tuesday announced they would back President Trump’s signature free-trade agreement just an hour after rolling out articles of impeachment that said he had abused his power and obstructed Congress.

It was a whiplash moment for Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), as her caucus almost simultaneously assured that Trump would become just the third U.S. president to be impeached and set him up for a huge legislative achievement to tout on his reelection campaign.

So why is she still working with him? Why is Pelosi backing Trump’s USMCA?

One possible answer? Trump has backed her into a corner with a popular piece of legislation that is a win-win for labor and business in the US.

A strange place to be for Pelosi, who has been the subject of a thousand glowing profiles in the mainstream media, touting her “masterful” handling of Trump. Who’s handling who?

Another possible answer? Pelosi really doesn’t believe that Trump is a lawless threat to democracy – she’s just saying so because she thinks it’ll help the Democrats.
