Democrat pledge to challenge Trump’s executive orders fizzles out

Last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) indicated that she would legally challenge Donald Trump’s executive orders bypassing legislative coronavirus relief.

This week, Nancy Pelosi’s fury seems to have subsided, and Democrat leaders appear to be unwilling to lead the charge against Trump’s popular executive actions. 

The Hill reported:

President Trump and Democratic leaders both predict there will be lawsuits over this weekend’s executive orders sidestepping Congress on issues like payroll taxes and unemployment benefits, but congressional Democrats are unlikely to lead that charge.

Democratic lawmakers aren’t rushing to court and will likely let state officials or private parties spearhead the legal challenges that could take months or even a year to resolve.

Among their chief concerns: the optics.

Donald Trump’s orders accomplished much of what both Democrats and Republicans prioritized in their proposed deals, but without any of the fluff that was causing negotiations to break down. The orders included a long-sought-after payroll tax cut, an eviction moratorium along with student loan and unemployment relief.

Pelosi and her Democrat colleagues know they can’t argue that all four of those measures are desperately needed, so their initial strategy was to attack the practicality of implementing the orders — quite an amusing reversal from normal Democrat operations.

The Los Angeles Times reported last week that the orders “are expected to face legal challenges from Democrats that could blunt their impact,” but Democrat legislators have already lost steam because it’s difficult to challenge orders that will directly benefit most of the US population.

Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) was asked by reporters on Monday if Democrats intend to file a lawsuit against the Trump administration over the orders.

Schumer’s deflection is very telling. “The bottom line is the executive orders — I agree with [GOP Rep. Ben Sasse (R-NE)] that they’re unconstitutional slop,” Schumer responded. “But the bottom line is even if they’re here, they’re not going to do what’s needed or come even close.”

After releasing a statement condemning the orders last week, Nancy Pelosi is now refusing to comment on Democrat plans to challenge the order.

  1. Why can’t the Representatives and Senators be genuine representatives of the people and serving their genuine needs and requirements? Why should they be playing politics all the time?

          1. NOPE! Robbie doesn’t have the intelligent to understand anything! But he think he does! Isn’t that what Democrat do? Every major city is control by DEMOCRAT and they are falling apart!

        1. No it is not!!!! Trump is doing something for the people!!!!! All the Dems can do is complain & bash the president!!!!! The Dems DO NOT care about America or the American people!!!!!!

        2. Robbie, until you can prove that you could do better while being attacked, go hide in a basement like your leader, LOL!
          Mr Trump has done a Hell of an impressive job! Look at all he has accomplished in less than 4 years (no other President has accomplished as much)! This man Loves our Nation and is working to improve all the damage done by his idiot predecessor! Now the Dems really want to show how stupid they are and plan to vote in a demented candidate! Oh and we don’t know what you have planned, because like the democraps we can’t see beyond our noses! Uh huh, right!

          1. And President Trump acheived all those accomplishments while the DO NOTHING DEMS committed TREASON against him and the American people.

          1. Margaret housman – You are 100% right. All of us, including the democrats, will be nothing but peons among all the power grabbing Liberals. God, please help us all, and I mean this with every thing I’ve got.

      1. YES!!! Our President is a “WORKING” President. Not like the illegal past libnut we had to put up with.
        It seems like every time a libnut opens their mouth, they shoot themselves in the foot.
        I wonder how long old sleepy “stink Finger” Joe’s VP pick will last???
        Checking her past, she is NOT even legal to run for ANY US government office. Do an in depth on her
        background.
        Semper Fi

    1. In my opinion, they are just there to rake in the money. How else can they go from bartender to millionaire in just a short time?

      1. You hit the nail on the head, politicians are as crooked as the day is long, and they must be removed from government forever. All “lawyers:” must never be allowed to participate in government in any form or fashion. The original 13th amendment specified “no titles of nobility” and that was ignored when the crooked lawyers removed that amendment form the Constitution and wrote a replacement for it. Lawyers are definitely very dishonest and only wanting to become as monetarily rich as they can be by cheating the American People.

    2. I wonder that also. I think we need a whole new set of representatives in Congress. It’s time most of them leave and I hope they ball are voted out in November.

  2. I am totally disgusted with the Democratic Party always stonewalling whatever the President does. They have no interest in helping the American People. They aren’t suffering with no jobs … no pay coming in . Democrats need to get over themselves and do what is right .

      1. in your dreams.they will never win. people in our country had enough of demo rat communist party. we want captalist country. president trump has done more in 3 yrs than any president has done in 50 years. they hate trump because he isnt part of the swamp. he is draining the swamp. god bless president trump and will be re elected in 2020.

      2. Robbie, all the Dems can think about is themselves!!!!!! You have done NOTHING for the American people for years!!!! Only filled your own pockets with our money!!!!!

      3. Your statement is not well thought out. You sound like the usual lib that just because you dont like a person (Trump) then they must be wrong and/or bad. You dont have to like the man to vote for the continued good he has done for all not just a few.

      4. AMERICA has never been a DEMOCRAY COUNTRY! AND TRUMP NAME DOESN’T HAVE A N IN IT! I Dare you to say the Pledge of flags! It say INTO THE REPUBLIC FOR WHICH IT STAND. Mean unto the PEOPLE! Democray is government CONTROL! Which this country is NOT CONTROL BY GOVERNMENT BUT BY THE VOTER!

        1. Wyatt, it is a “democratic” country, not a “democray”. This country has been a “republic” since its founding and, by the way, was founded upon Christian principles. Also, the phrase in the Pledge of Allegiance is, “and to the republic for which it stands”, not “into the republic for which it stand

      5. Biden 2020; he and Kamila will bring us all the “goodies” like, tax increases, burdensome regulations, taxpayer funded abortion on demand, open borders, gun confiscation while concurrently defunding the police and defense department, legitimization of corrupt relations with Ukraine and China (as long as a Biden can make an illicit buck at it), destruction of traditional families, elimination of our dominance in energy, and anarchy in the streets. We will all hear the sucking sound of our jobs and corporations relocating off-shore.

        1. All those goodies they bring will collapse our country. I take it your post was meant to be sarcastic. Never Democrat control of our nation should be our goal.

      6. President Trump is the best President this Country has had. He is a true patriot and works hard for all of us (even idiots). The only reason Demorats hate him is he has and will continue to expose all their crooked behavior and dirty secrets.

      7. What a fool. Can’t see beyond your nose. Can’t you tell when someone is lying to you. Low intelligence. Obviously a CNN watcher. Try a week watching Fox. Buy the Epoch Times. Get the real facts. Once you learn the real truth, you will hate yourself for being used and you friends will unfriend you but that’s okay. At least you have now have a good chance of having a good life and no longer hanging with those that will hold you down. Just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should. Rise up and learn to be happy. You can do this. It is the right thing to do.

        1. Even fox is not allowed to tell the whole truth. They do state more facts but not all of them. The owners of fox are rabid liberals and tone down a lot of truths.

      8. robbie REALLY REALLY TRUMP IS RUINING OUR COUNTRY DO YOU HAVE YOUR HEAD UP YOUR AXXXX PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS DONE MORE GOOD FOR OUR COUNTRY THAN ALL THE PRESIDENTS GOING ALL THE WAY BACK TO HONEST ABE LINCOLN BIDEN SHOULD BE IN A NURSING HOME & HIS WIFE IS A NARCISIST SELF SEVING P.O.S. BIDEN CANT EVEN PUT A SENTENCE TOGETHER THAT MAKES ANY SENSE AND HE CANT EVEN REMEMBER WHAT DAY OF THE WEEK IT IS OR WHERE HES AT EXCEPT THAT HE NEVER LEAVES HIS BASEMENT HES A LOSER GO AWAY JOE YOU HAVE BEEN IN GOVERNMENT FOR ABOUT 50 YEARS AND HAVE DONE NOTHING

      9. But Biden is an old, senile man! Do you want Pelosi to run our country into a third world nation and we would be oppressed?

  3. Let us hope and vote that all these politicians who have turned their backs on the people will be voted out this election. That’s the only way this nation will ever get any relief from this mess. The democrats can support all this destruction in the streets but it won’t bring anything but more disaster. Although it won’t help the common people these slime balls will have to face what they have created at some point.

      1. Robbie, you are the typical democrat. Just saying it does not make it so. Give me some facts supporting your statement. All polls of late suggest that Trump in winning the swing states and very knowledgeable people are predicting that Trump will win in a landslide. Why not ask Michelle the name of the doctor treating her for her Trump Derangement Syndrome.

        1. You know they don’t have any facts. They are all deranged and drinking the cool aid. I alawys thought that if you got a good education that you would be smart enough to see the truth and know if and when someone is lying to you. Guess I was wrong. Just look at what Robbie posted. Boom, proof!

      2. Robbie, you need your anti-psychotic meds again, I think. We’ll know who the next President is in November, 2020, (provided votes don’t get shand-haied and altered by the democrabs.

  4. Pelosi and her cronies could care LESS about americans or the country, wanting open borders who’s going to suppot them including the children sent alone there’s so much pork including bailing out the democratic run cities they allowed to burn and destroy them

  5. I support financial help to address covid. But nothing to help cities that condone or allow this destruction to continue when they were offered federal help to restore peace!!!!!!!

  6. THE DEMS WILL NEVER MAKE CHARGES AGAINST TRUMP……UNLESS THE JUDGE IS A DEM?????? AFTER ALL HE IS ‘PAID’ BY THE DEMS TO DO “WHATEVER’ NANCY AND CHUCK WANT…….JUST ANOTHER CROOKED DEALS BY THE DEMS??????? THE DEMS ARE DISGUSTING, VILE, VIOLENT, LIARS, THEIVES, FRAUD, ETC; I HAVE NEVER KISTEN TO THE DEMS ……WHEN THEY HAVE “NOT” LIED?????????? Joe Biden SAID TRUMP WAS ON THE GOLF COURSE!!!!!!!!! AFRAID NOT BUDDY….YOU MUST HAVE LOOKED AT OBAMA ON THE GOLF COURSE!!!!!!!! BECAUSE HE WAS “ALWAYS” ON THE GOLF COURSE!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. We need to stand together like true Americans. We want a civil country to live in. That’s the last thing dems care about. They only car about power and money. They encourage destruction, death of children, looting, and mayhem to get what they want.

  8. Hog trough feeders are the first to whine when the swill runs low. Biden, Pilosi, and Upchuck have been at this so long the bottom has worn out and so has their welcome.

  9. Right on Doug! The demonrats are sucking up to blm and antifa, hoping they can terrorize people enough to cave to their demands! Not gonna happen! All while robbing our country and our people!

  10. The Demonic rats will do anything to destroy a free America. The msm scum are the biggest problem and need to be beaten for the garbage they write.
    Bottom line is TRUMP 2020 is the Only ticket for America to remain a free country. He will win and groping Joe and Kamala can play with each other

  11. The reason Dems dont like Trump is because he is a businessman and not a politician. He might come across as a bully of sorts but thats the businessman being in charge. He has convinced me by his actions that he wants the best for this country. History has shown the Democrats get this country in a quagmire and the Republicans have to bail them out. Lets not repeat previous administration mistakes.

  12. Hey Pelosi, get off your dead A$$ and go to work for the people of this country!! If you refuse to do that get the He!! out a the way and let Trump do it. But I’m pretty sure which ever course you take, the voters will remember come Nov. 3rd.!!

  13. What happened to the last post replying to Robbie. I put a lot of thought and effort in that post. I will appreciate if you will post it.

  14. Pelosi and the Lefties can bluster and fume all they wish, but the precedent was set by themselves under Obama, and they only have themselves to blame. They (Democrats) were warned that such actions would likely come back to bite them and the president’s Exec. Orders has clearly shown them to be careful what they wish for, they just might get it. Just like they have.

  15. IN GOD WE TRUST _WE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE CHOSE TO HAVE A GOVERNMENT FOR THE PEOPLE AND BY THE PEOPLE THROUGH THE CONSTITUTION THAT WOULD KEEP THE POWER TO THE PEOPLE AND THOSE IN GOVERNMENT FROM GREED .IT IS OBVIOUS THESE PEOPLE ELECTED TO HONOR THEIR VOWS . HAVE DECIDED TO DIS HONOR OUR CONSTITUTION AND OUR HISTORY TO DESTROY OUR STATUES AND DESTROY FAMILY OWNED BUSSINESSES AND PUT THEM IN HARMS WAY. DONALD J TRUMP IS THE MAN WE THE PEOPLE ELECTED KNOWING FULL AND WELL THAT HE SAW WERE OUR COUNTRY WAS HEADING AND HIS LOVE FOR OUR COUNTRY AND THE PEOPLE WHO DIED FOR US> WANTED TO STOP THIS DESTRUCTION > GOD BLESS DONALD J TRUMP,

  16. Dem’s/BLM consistent with their brainwashing technique….drive-by media backs them..you’ll very seldom here the truth or read it in Marxist newspapers….They are sick but dangerous—FIGHT BACK AMERICA—counter protest whenever BLM/ANTIFA are protesting…keep waving our flag…they hate that!!

  17. STOP cutting off my views and viewing of subjects. American digest STOP on my I pad If this is not I WILL TAKE YOU to LAWS and Sue for everything you have!!

  18. As I have said Pelosi is a complete IDIOT and she shows it every time she opens her mouth, she need to go and sooner the better
