House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff stated that America could not “survive” another four years if President Trump gets reelected.
Schiff appeared on an interview on “ABC This Week,” and told host George Stephanopoulos that he believes the reelection of President Trump could be detrimental to America. He claimed that President Trump “has to” lose in order to protect the “democratic institutions” of the country.
“[Trump’s reelection is] not going to happen. I don’t think this country could survive another 4 years with a president like this who gets up every day trying to find new and inventive ways to divide us. He doesn’t seem to understand that a fundamental aspect of his job is to try and make us a more perfect union, but that’s not at all where he’s coming from. He’s going to be defeated. He has to be defeated because I don’t know how much more our democratic institutions can take of this kind of attack on the rule of law.” he said.
While Chairman Adam Schiff may think the President is detrimental to the United States, Trump’s record doesn’t seem to show it.
Under President Trump’s administration, the U.S. economy is thriving. Nearly every subset of the economy — including women, veterans, Hispanic Americans, and Black Americans, have witnessed historically low unemployment rates. The average wages for these workers has also increased.
With the Opportunity Zone project, this administration has ensured that the economic successes America is seeing at-large are witnessed in low-income, inner-city neighborhoods, as well.
Outside of economy, the President has taken steps to ensure that the U.S. is a more just country by passing prison reforms to help non-violent criminals spend less time behind bars and have a smooth re-entry into society.
Beyond that, ISIS has been almost defeated, American prisoners have been released from North Korea, and the President promised to return the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem.
It looks as though America will survive the first four years of the Trump administration. It’s unclear why Adam Schiff does not think it couldn’t survive four more.
