Majority of American voters oppose impeaching Trump

While avoiding any mention of the special counsel's investigation into whether Trump's presidential campaign coordinated with Russia in the 2016 USA election, Carter said he has engaged for years with Russian President Vladimir Putin concerning the ongoing Syrian civil war. This might fly if he was the president of Russian Federation but not here in the U.S.

Even if the initiative fails to pass, it could put Democrats in the position of opposing the new tax-cut plan on the House floor, which Republicans could seek to use to their advantage in the November 6 elections where control of Congress will be at stake.

The Senate, where the Republicans have 51 of the 100 seats, is a different story.

It would also eliminate the maximum age for some retirement account contributions and let new businesses write off more start-up costs.

The Quinnipiac University national poll showed that 56 percent of voters - including 61 percent of independents - said they are not on board with the impeachment from liberal Democrats. About half of independents and about a third of Democrats say such behavior is inappropriate. Republicans were the only group that trusted Trump more than the media, by 72 to 12 per cent.

Midterm elections often serve as referendums on the incumbent president, which makes Trump's overall unpopularity a liability for Republicans.

President Donald Trump has reportedly woken up to the possibility of being ousted from office by angry Democrats, and thinks he can play the situation towards a big reelection in 2020.

Experts claim the rule affects high-tax states like California, New York and New Jersey - all which have highly contested midterm races.

The new tax law enacted in December provides steep tax cuts for corporations and the wealthiest Americans, and more modest reductions for middle- and low-income individuals and families.

The amount the tax cut 2.0 legislation would add to the deficit would likely outweigh any economic growth stemming from the cuts, according to Alan Viard, a resident scholar at the right-leaning think tank American Enterprise Institute. "That's why a mix of making old stuff permanent and also pushing new good things is smart".

Under Trump and the Republican-controlled Congress, the federal deficit has begun growing rapidly again and is expected to blow through $1 trillion in 2019.
