House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., tells ‘Fox & Friends: Weekend’ host Pete Hegseth that President Trump is delivering for the American people while 2020 Democrats are not.
Appearing on “Fox & Friends: Weekend,” Scalise said Trump “dominated” in terms of delivering on his promises.
“Great week for the president,” the Louisiana Republican said.
On Tuesday, Trump gave the annual State of the Union address. On Wednesday, the president was acquitted in the Senate impeachment trial. On Thursday ,the White House confirmed the killing of terror leader Qassim al-Rimi in Yemen. On Friday, the Labor Department reported the economy added 225,000 jobs in January.
Scalise went to the Iowa caucuses on Monday supporting the president’s team and said that while Trump showed “excited” voters what he was able to do for them, 2020 Democrats showed what they couldn’t do, thanks in part to botched caucus tallies.
The congressman also told host Pete Hegseth that the president hit his third State of the Union speech “out of the ballpark,” while House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., was literally “becoming unhinged,” ripping up her copy of the address.
Scalise noted that the jobs report had the “best [economic numbers] in generations.”
He criticized Democrats running for president for opposing the missile strike that killed an Iranian general linked to terror attacks on the grounds that he posed no imminent threat.
“I mean, what are you doing when you can’t kill a terrorist who not only killed hundreds of men and women in uniform, but was in Iraq later that day plotting to kill more Americans? And, they wouldn’t do that,” Scalise said.
