‘In 60 days, Trump Victory has 600,000 new donors, people who never once contributed to a political party.’
Prior to the final vote on Articles of Impeachment Wednesday, a conference call with Eric Trump of the Trump Victory team found the President’s son as consistent as ever on his criticisms, and particularly of California House Democrats.
Eric Trump has been vociferously critical of House Democrats during the “impeachment charade,” and has mocked the Democratic leadership repeatedly.

Articles of Impeachment
The House of Representatives passed Articles of Impeachment Wednesday.
Abuse of Power: The first Article was passed by a vote of 230–197–1. Two Democrats joined with Republicans to vote against it.
Obstruction of Congress: The second Article was passed 229–198–1, with three Democrats joining all 195 Republicans in opposition.
Eric Trump Revels in the President’s Popularity Despite ‘Impeachment Charade’
In Tweets, Eric Trump has harshly criticized the “impeachment charade” as an attempt to destroy the United States:
. @SpeakerPelosi and her swamp creatures are truly trying to destroy our nation. Let’s distract from the greatest economy in the history of our country, lowest unemployment, millions off of food stamps, 401k’s skyrocketing… This is why Americans universally hate Washington D.C

“A lot of Americans are pissed off about where this country was going, and how they were left behind,” Trump said during the call.
He also said that not a single Democrat from congressional districts won by President Trump in 2016 spoke on the House floor during the impeachment process Wednesday.
But most illustrious is the record polling and astounding fundraising by the Trump Victory team, even during the impeachment process… or perhaps because of it, Mr. Trump said. He spoke about a “dialing for dollars” event the team had last week. In three hours they raised $8.1 million.
And “in 60 days, Trump Victory has 600,000 new donors, people who never once contributed to a political party,” Eric Trump said.
.@SpeakerPelosi, please keep this impeachment sham going – these polls are incredible!!! Trump Tweeted.

Eric Trump discussed the lowest-in-50-years unemployment statistics in nearly every category: Hispanics, women, blacks, and teens. What this means is that the total number of workers who receive unemployment insurance fell to the lowest level in 50 years.
The jobless rate for Hispanics hit a record low of 3.9% in September, while African Americans maintained its lowest rate ever, 5.5%. The unemployment rate for Asian Americans was 2.5% in September. The jobless rate for adult women came in at 3.1%.
“They are marching my father into victory in 2020,” Eric Trump said. And, again, he said just how “pissed off” people in the country are, and how “they can’t relate to Nancy Pelosi and Eric Swalwell… the showboating by Nancy Pelosi and Eric Swalwell.”
“They are losing their backbone,” Trump said. “They are deceiving people back in their districts, but will be made to pay by voters.”
“Start looking at county polls,” he said. “People in swing states don’t buy the impeachment sham. It’s dead last in the polls.”
Eric Trump said while we were on the call, thousands of President Trump’s loyal fans were waiting in a line several miles long up in Battlecreek, Michigan in the cold, awaiting the Trump rally.

Currently, Speaker Pelosi is sitting on the impeachment articles, holding them back from being sent to the Senate. Many say it’s because the Democrats’ impeachment articles are expected to fail by a wide margin in the Senate, which requires a two-thirds majority for conviction and removal.
Both previously impeached presidents Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton were saved from conviction of impeachment by the Senate.
Perhaps one of the most damning of Tweets following the House impeachment vote was a celebratory photo (now deleted) from Washington Post congressional reporter Rachel Bade. However many retweeted it and captured screen shots of it, including Eric Trump:

“We’re going to win this thing again,” Eric Trump said. “They just don’t have a candidate; that’s why they smear my father.”
He said the USMCA should have been passed last year. “This is not how government should work,” Trump said.
