House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats smell blood in the water.
Congressional Democrats believe the Chinese coronavirus is their ticket back to power this November.
And Nancy Pelosi won a victory over Trump that instantly blew up in her face.
Donald Trump and Senate Republicans embraced a controversial $1.6 trillion relief package providing grants to small businesses to keep workers on payroll and to provide support to distressed industries such as travel and hospitality.
Congressional leaders thought they had an agreement over the weekend on a bill that the Senate could then pass on Monday.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi blew up those plans by flying back to Washington and throwing down a list of socialist demands that scuttled any potential deal.
Senate Democrats then blocked a key procedural vote on Sunday night after Speaker Pelosi issued her own 1,100-page bill that demanded minority representation on corporate boards, a $15 per hour minimum wage and communist Green New Deal provisions.
Democrats complicated matters even more on Monday when Pelosi released an expanded 1,400-page revised version of her bill.
Senate Democrats once again defeated a key procedural vote on the compromise Senate relief bill.
Democrats thought by continually blocking the relief bills from advancing, they could exert more leverage over the final product.
However, the stock market tanked 600 points as Wall Street expected Congress to come together and pass a relief package to help keep the economy afloat.
Instead, Democrats wagered all their political chips on the gamble that Donald Trump would be so terrified of the fake news painting the Chinese coronavirus pandemic as “Trump’s Hurricane Katrina” that the President would accept the Democrats’ socialist policy wish list.
But what the Democrats did not count on was the public approving of Donald Trump’s management of the Chinese coronavirus outbreak.
The President holds daily televised press briefings with his Chinese coronavirus task force where the team relays vital information about the government’s response to the public and then takes questions from reporters.
These sessions allow the American people to see that the President is fully engaged in solving this crisis and that the government has a real plan to deliver needed supplies to hot spots, contain the spread of the virus and then open up the economy and prevent a second Great Depression.
Democrats are playing a losing hand and now they are hoping to string the process along in hopes that continued stock market declines force the President’s hand.
The stock market plunged 10,000 points in the last month because of the panic that pervades American life over the uncertainty of when and how the Chinese coronavirus outbreak will end.
Americans are feeling real economic pain and anxiety right now, but as of this point in time, they are not blaming the President for how a virus that began in China wrecked the economy.
