Donald Trump to Governors: We’re Giving Power Back to the States

Trump Walks Govs Assoc-APPresident Donald Trump promised a large crowd of American governors that he would work to redirect power from the federal government to the states.

“We’re going to give you back a lot of the powers that have been taken away from states and great people and great governors, and you can control it better than the federal government because you’re right on top of it,” Trump said.

The president delivered a speech at the National Governors Association meeting on Monday.

He explained that more states needed to compete for the best solutions around the country, citing the importance of citizens holding their state governors accountable.

“They know the best how to spend their dollars and how to take care of the people within each state,” Trump said, referring to state elected officials. “And states are different and people are different. So the governors are going to have a lot more decision-making ability than they have right now.”

i like this very much

He needs to give back the tax money with the power... he should not simply transfer the authority and KEEP the taxes.

Best way to return power to the states:  REPEAL THE 17th AMENDMENT!  It resulted in the disenfranchisement of the states.  It also gives us TWO 'houses of representatives'.  We need a REAL Senate. 

Hurrah!!  His Governors Meeting was the largest in History, many eager to attend, realizing we now have a Man running the Country ,who loves the Country, and makes decisions that make sense.  Like the idea of Common Core, with all being the same, no way, we're a huge Country & have huge and unique problems, in different demographic locations.     God Bless & keep President Trump, and guide his Hand.

Sorry to hear that! He could at least wait a couple of years until john kasich is term limited out. 

Free chest cavity dumb dumb shots for democrats leaning Left. Offer good until feds run out of lead.

As long as Trump doesn't empower such renegade and failing states as California and New York, I am good with giving power back to the states. But Trump needs to bring failing states and cities to heel before he can give them power. Otherwise they will abuse their power.

Angry Dem Impeachment ‘Witness’: Pam Karlan Donated Thousands To Hillary And Was On Clinton’s List For Potential SCOTUS Nomination

The House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Rep. Jerrold Nadler, kicked off its first impeachment circus Wednesday morning.

The four ‘witnesses’ testifying have never actually witnessed any of Trump’s dealings with Ukraine firsthand — the four witnesses are law professors offering legal analysis.

One of the witnesses the Dems rolled out is an angry Hillary Clinton donor who was on Crooked’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

No wonder why this unhinged, dowdy woman is so pissed off!

“Professor Pam Karlan donated thousands of dollars to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination. So she certainly has no vendetta against President Trump,” GOP Rep. Mark Walker said.

Congressman Walker also pointed out that Noah Feldman, the Dems first partisan witness in Wednesday’s hearing tweeted about impeaching Trump right after he was sworn in.

Meet Noah Feldman, House Democrats first partisan witness.

Look at the date of this tweet. He has been trying to get @realDonaldTrump impeached since 46 days into his presidency.

His reason? Trump criticized President Obama.

This is a sham impeachment with sham witnesses.

The next witness, Karlan, has donated thousands to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

So she certainly has no vendetta against @realDonaldTrump.

These witnesses are as serious as House Democrats impeachment case: not at all.

The entire sham show trial is stacked with partisan hacks who have wanted to impeach Trump from the moment he won in November of 2016.

Norm Eisen, the Democrats’ counsel who is blasting Trump and questioning witnesses in Wednesday’s show trial, tweeted about impeaching Trump before Donald Trump was even sworn into office!
