Mercedes Schlapp: Democrats Can Try to Impeach Trump, 'But They Will Lose'
White House Director of Strategic Communications Mercedes Schlapp said it would be a "losing strategy" for Democrats to talk about impeaching President Trump.
Democratic leaders -- like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Pelosi (D-Calif.) and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) -- have taken a wait-and-see approach to questions about impeachment, while more outspoken, progressive members of the caucus -- such as Rep. Rashida Tlaib -- have vowed to bring a premature end to the Trump presidency.
“If the Democrats want to keep their impeachment talk -- where we know there is no collusion, where we've been transparent and cooperative in the process -- that's a losing strategy for them," Schlapp said on "America's Newsroom" Monday.
She argued that the American people want the president and both parties to work together to solve the many problems that are facing the nation.
"That is what the president is working on every day," Schlapp said. “If they want to use impeachment as their political maneuver, they can go and try, but let me tell you something, they will lose.”
In the meantime, she said, Trump is focused on finding bipartisan solutions on critical issues like infrastructure and trade.
