The republicans have stuck together, there's a witch-hunt, it's a terrible thing, but even the democrats they couldn't find very much because they put up two articles that frankly, a very weak and they're very weak. Also they approved today of all days. We'Ve been waiting a year and they approved today in the u. s. mca, and i call that the silver lining to impeachment, because without the impeachm ...
nt they would have never approved it. In my opinion, the impeachment is the reason they approved it and, interestingly, one hour after the news conference, they went out and did a news conference on the big trade deal. The great trade deal one of the greatest trade deals ever made forour country and the reason is they wanted to muffle down the impeachment because they're embarrassed by it and they couldn't get the votes and that's exactly what happened. So it's a terrible thing when they do something like that. But now it goes to, i guess, a vote and i assume they will probably have to have. The votes are very weak articles. But, very importantly, today we get us mca and that's going to be a great thing for our farmers or manufacturers for our for just about everybody. That'S good for everybody.

Unions included. I spoke with richard trumka. I spoke to james hoffa and we had the good talks that the union people i did thata few days ago. We had some very good talks and everybody is really loving the us mca, so we're very happy about that. Well, i think the democrats, i can't imagine they vote for it, because we did nothing wrong. There was absolutely nothing done wrong. They'Ve analyzed my conversation. Every way you can and when you talk about you know the word favor was mentioned that it was mentioned. Not me a favor, you just saw the way it was, and it was nothing to do with me. This has to do with the united states. The word was us: can you do us a favor than we talk about the country and we talk about seeing theattorney general of the united states when you look at it, and that was just a part of it? It was a congratulatory quote and they were two of them. Nobody even mentions the other one.

We had another one where they won. Originally he won the election and i think it's a disgrace that people can make impeachment out of nothing. That was a perfect conversation. If you look at mark levine, he analyzed the conversation, one of the great constitutional lawyers. Many of them have, they were perfect conversations, there's nothing to impeach on and i think it's a disgrace. I think it's an absolute. I think it's an absolute disgrace. So let's say they vote on iti, don't know when they're gon na vote, who knows all i know is they were very embarrassed by it and that's why they brought up usmc a an hour after because they figure it'll muffle it a little bit. And if you look at, if you look at the poll numbers, the firehouse poll just came out and we're way ahead of everybody in every state, every you know most of the i think most of the swing states were way ahead and you know what i don't Know if that's impeachment or the fact that we have the best economic numbers that we've ever had in our country have the best unemployment numbers and employment numbers. We have thebest numbers we've ever had in our country, and so i think that has something to do with it. You saw on friday, 266 thousand jobs, new jobs and other countries all over the world. They'Re not doing well we're doing great with the hottest country in the world, so i think that has a lot to do with it.

So i'm going out to now we're going out now. Excuse me we're going out now to hershey pennsylvania. Some of you are coming. I assume we'll see you there we're gon na make a comment about it.
