President Donald Trump on Saturday released a 38-second lie-filled video rant taking aim at Democrats days after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced that the House would initiate a formal impeachment inquiry against Trump, accusing him of violating the Constitution in seeking help from a foreign leader to damage a political opponent.
“What’s going on now is the single greatest scam in the history of American politics,” Trump said in the video rant, shared shortly after he returned to the White House from Trump National Golf Course on Saturday.
According to the White House pool report, protesters outside his golf course held signs reading, “Resign” and “Jail Trump.”
According to the pool report, Trump has arrived at Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, VA.
This is Trump's 233rd day at a Trump golf club and 306th day at a Trump property as president.

“The Democrats want to take away your guns, they want to take away your health care, they want to take away your vote, they want to take away your freedom, they want to take away your judges, they want to take away everything,” Trump falsely claimed.
“We can never let this happen,” Trump warned. “We’re fighting to drain the swamp and that’s exactly what I’m doing, and you see why we have to do it because our country is at stake like never before.
“It’s all very simple, they’re trying to stop me because I’m fighting for you and I’ll never let that happen,” Trump added.
