President Donald Trump warned Tuesday that the effort by Democrats to impeach him again would only escalate political tensions in the country after a group of his supporters stormed Capitol Hill last week.
“This impeachment is causing tremendous anger, and you’re doing it and it’s really a terrible thing that they are doing,” Trump said.
The president spoke to reporters about the push by Democrats to impeach him again as he left the White House for a trip to the southern border to review the wall structures completed during his administration.
“It’s really a continuation of the greatest witch hunt in the history of politics. It’s ridiculous,” Trump said.
The president stressed he did not want any violence from his supporters as Democrats and even some Republicans signaled support for impeachment after the riots on Capitol Hill.
“We want no violence, never violence; we want absolutely no violence,” he said.
