“The televised #ImpeachmentHearings only make sense when you accept that Republicans refuse to even acknowledge what happened, much less than it was wrong.” @tvcnewsng #Nigeria #ImpeachmentInquiry #Ukraine
“Pres. Trump pulled out of the #ParisClimateAccord to strengthen his 2020 argument that he’s putting #AmericaFirst. But he’s misrepresented that the accord was the #US subsidizing the rest of the world’s #climatechange efforts. FALSE.” @tvcnewsng @RCCommsDC #GlobalWarming
1. Democrats have called Trump/GOP’s bluff that they wouldn’t go on record with a vote. (Check, it’s ✔️.)
2. All Dems but 2 voted for the inquiry; no Republicans did. For GOP in deep Trump districts, they’ll be aiight. But this wasn’t a vote to impeach, it was to just officially open the investigation. How is a GOP Rep in a moderate district going to explain that they wouldn’t even vote for an investigation into very serious allegations?
3. The American people get to see & hear the testimonies, which will be more enlightening than the spin coming from either side.
What do protests in #Chile, #Lebanon & #HongKong have in common & what does it say for the state of #democracy & #governance around the world? I joined TVC News Nigeria to discuss.
The killing of ISIS leader al-Baghdadi comes as Pres. Trump recovers from the overwhelming bipartisan criticism of his withdrawal from Syria and abandonment of the Kurds. Will this change the conversation in Washington? How will Trump use this foreign policy win to strengthen his argument for reelection in 2020?
