'It hasn't stopped him': Trump racks up wins, even as impeachment grips Washington

David M. Drucker, Washington Examiner

President Trump enjoyed an extraordinary period of policy successes over the past two weeks, even as Democrats seeking to remove him from office moved articles of impeachment through the House. Trump may have gotten more out of the deal-making, securing a host of key priorities that could boost his 2020 reelection bid. The president obtained regular funding for construction of a wall along the Mexican border; won the elimination of unpopular Obamacare taxes, such as one on medical devices; and signed legislation to provide permanent federal funding for historically black colleges and universities. Trump might yet pay a political price for impeachment, but  so far, the process has not damaged Trump's political standing.
