1:21 pm
trump course it is an arch conservative jurist at just forty nine years old and with a lifetime appointment he is likely to shape a good portion of american law moving forward. in terms only legislative success so far has been his tax bill with an estimated one point five trillion dollars in tax cuts it advances several conservative republican objectives like slashing corporate taxes and in particular lowering the rate for the richest americans he signed the bill into law even though the american public largely disapproved. the president also fulfilled a key campaign promise when he announced he'd withdraw the u.s. from the paris climate agreement over the objections of many of his advisors the u.s. is now the only country in the world that has not signed the accord. building on strategies the obama administration put in place trumped ups the numbers of u.s. troops in iraq and syria. ultimately hoping to defeat the so-called islamic state
1:22 pm
the prime minister of iraq declared victory over i asked last month. and the u.s. economy has remained strong under trump u.s. stock markets have reached record highs and unemployment is at a seventeen year low over the president's behavior has been a daily flashpoint and many people still feel left behind in the economy mainstream conservatives have a lot to be happy about. meanwhile they were allowed to be stellar trunk even before he was sworn into office accusations of misconduct by trump's critics have been turned into charges but that hasn't stopped his opponents washington bureau chief for nolen spoke to democratic congressman steve cohen from tennessee who made an official case for impeachment last. congressman cohen you have interviews five to close off impeachment against president still not strum and you are calling upon congress to start impeachment hearings why now well i think
1:23 pm
there's been times before when they could have been brought i mean from almost the beginning of his administration he's done things that have been difficult to bear for people that are used to american presidents who is exhibit grace and aplomb and intelligence and the where in this but he's committed acts concerning his business practices his businesses the money he's made which are in violation of our constitution called the emoluments clause and then he came up with the firing of james called me which i thought was a very low point in american history and think that was a shock of justice so these things have occurred and are held back and held back and held back and that finally what happened at charlottesville. really was kind of the straw that broke the camel's back what happened charlottesville virginia where neo nazis and ku klux klansmen for raided with impunity as they should i guess in
1:24 pm
a free country but they marched and. waved nazi flags and talked about the jews will not take our jobs our places and seeing what happened charles for him out of the kristallnacht and being jewish i said i cannot sit back and let this happen in my country but the republicans have control of both houses in congress you know i think that the i think what of that have any chance of the likelihood of it happening is slim and none and slim is the long shot but at the same time if the democrats who believe that he's committed impeachable offenses that have districts that support them in that. don't come forward and bring the subject up and start the debate how do you expect the republicans whose district right now are supportive of tropic instead pietschmann to ever have the guts to come forth and go to listen the country and our democracy aren't at risk to this. individual and that so you have to start somewhere so i did it. thank you i'm here very well. ok listen
