The president specifically lashed out at House Democrats for announcing articles of impeachment just before also announcing they had struck a deal with the White House on the modified trade agreement between the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
“(Democrats) announced impeachment, then an hour later she announced that she is going to do USMCA,” Trump said. “Because you know why, it’s a huge deal and it plays out impeachment because they are embarrassed by the impeachment.”
“These people are crooked,” Trump said, now just the fourth president in American history to face impeachment charges, adding that Democrats were trying to “overthrow our democracy.”
At Pennsylvania campaign rally, Pres. Trump says the ‘impeachment witch hunt having to do with Ukraine’ is ‘already failing.’
