Shortly before traveling to Texas to oversee the southern border wall he built, President Donald Trump told reporters that the current talk of impeachment was “ a continuation for the greatest witch hunt in the history of politics,” calling the legislative measure “absolutely ridiculous.”
Trump then went on to blame the media and Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer for their part in causing “tremendous anger” by how they are reporting the news.
“This impeachment is causing tremendous anger, and you're doing it, and it's really a terrible thing that they're doing,” “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.”
Trump was then asked to clarify his role, if any, in the recent Capitol riot that resulted in dozens of arrests and the deaths of 6 people, including two police officers.
“So if you read my speech, and many people have done it, and I've seen it both in the papers and in the media, on television -- it’s been analyzed, and people thought that what I said was totally appropriate,” stated Trump.
