Trump lashes out at House Democrats for pushing impeachment inquiry
Tehran (KNA) - US President Donald Trump has lashed out at House Democrats for leading an impeachment inquiry against him and called on Republicans to support him in his reelection campaign.
Speaking to supporters in Tupelo, Miss., on Friday night, Trump attacked the Democrats saying he would easily defeat any Democratic rival in the November 2020 presidential election.
He described the Democratic-led impeachment inquiry against him as a "preposterous hoax".
"The democrat party has gone completely insane. The radical left is determined to transform America into a country you would not recognize. We are the ones standing in their way, and we will never get out of their way, it will be easy," he said.
Trump went on to mock former vice president and 2020 candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden over their Ukrainian business dealings which sparked the impeachment process against him.
He called Biden "One Percent Joe" and slammed the media for supporting him.
Trump framed the impeachment inquiry -- sparked by his demands from Ukraine's president -- as an attack on Republicans.
The rally came as a growing number of Republican senators in the US Congress are ready to acknowledge that Trump used American military aid to pressure Ukraine's president to find "dirt" on Biden.
