Democrats imploding in US politics: bad news for De Lima

I’ve been watching developments in U.S. politics these last three weeks with the impeachment trial (which ended up in acquittal) of President Donald Trump on charges brought about by the Democratic Party-dominated House of Representatives.

The Democrats are the allies of the dilawans in the Philippines. They are the ones pushing, nay demanding, for the release of Senator Leila de Lima from detention. And in the wake of the acquittal of President Trump, the Democratic Party is now in shambles.

From all indications, President Trump is headed for an easy victory at the polls in November this year. The Dems can’t even seem to put up a decent fight against Trump with its topsy-turvy primaries. And there is fear that Senator Bernie Sanders might emerge the Democratic nominee for President, something many Democrats shudder in thinking about.

Worse, with the Democratic Party losing credibility before American voters, their domination of the U.S. House of Representatives might be upended in the November polls.

This is big, bad news for De Lima and the Liberal Party. President Trump might just reach out again to President Digong and repair the damage to our relations caused by the Democrats.
