President Trump on Tuesday said the House Democrats who are working to impeach him a second time are the cause of “tremendous anger” across the country.
Trump spoke to reporters at the White House before leaving for a trip to Texas on Tuesday to take a look at sections of the southern border wall, and said a second impeachment would be “continuation of the greatest witch hunt in the history of politics.”
The President accused the Democrats of endangering the country and emphasized that he wanted “no violence” following the assault in Washington, D.C., last week.
“We want no violence, never violence; we want absolutely no violence,” he said.
“This impeachment is causing tremendous anger,” the president continued. “For Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer to continue on this path, I think it’s causing tremendous danger to our country and it’s causing tremendous anger. I want no violence.”
On Tuesday, he Trump ignored questions from reporters and just delivered his statement.
The House will vote Wednesday on whether to impeach Trump a second time, just a week before he leaves office.
