Update: A word from POTUS:
Breaking News: Unemployment Rate, at 3.5%, drops to a 50 YEAR LOW. Wow America, lets impeach your President (even though he did nothing wrong!).— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 4, 2019
The unemployment rate keeps dropping, which means things are looking up for the U.S. economy. The September jobs report reveals that unemployment is at an historic 50-year low.
So, Republicans are asking, what's all this talk about impeachment?
BIG NEWS ?? The unemployment rate dropped to 3.5%—a new 50 YEAR low! ????????— Steve Scalise (@SteveScalise) October 4, 2019
While Democrats are obsessed with impeachment, @realDonaldTrump is working hard and actually getting things done for the American people. https://t.co/CE3DPBaHuV
.@SteveScalise is right - more good economic news today and while the impeachment charade continues, we need to keep doing the work to ensure we see greater economic security, like passing #USMCA and addressing the crisis at our southern border. https://t.co/86aFCwEXxW— Rep Rick Crawford (@RepRickCrawford) October 4, 2019
GOP leaders are urging their colleagues to move on from the "i" word and start focusing on the issues the American people want to see addressed. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi claimed earlier this week that that's what she wants too. She hopes Trump will focus on their "common ground" and work with Democrats on lowering prescription drugs and trade, for starters.
"The ball is in his court," she claimed.
This, of course, was after she spent several minutes talking about impeachment and the president's supposed constitutional violations.
