House Dem Admits They Block Legislation Because “We Don’t Want to Give the President a Win”

By

Rep. Mikie Sherrill (D., N.J.) expressed concerns with her Democratic colleagues, admitting they block legislation because they “don’t want to give the president a win.”

Speaking at a Livingston, New Jersey, town hall Sherrill revealed the “different mindset” of congressional Democrats who prioritize resisting President Donald Trump over passing legislation that could help their constituents.

“When I go, you know, I’ve gone up to people and said, ‘I need to get this piece of legislation passed,’ and they say ‘Oh yeah, we just passed it,'” Sherrill said. “I said, ‘Yeah, we just passed it. I need the Senate to pass it and I need the president to sign it,’ and they said ‘Well, we don’t want to give the president a win.'”

Watch:

This happened back in Feb. Do you think is happening now?

Democrats are opposing Trump’s ideas to help Americans during the coronavirus pandemia.
