GOP Lawmaker Rips Trump For ‘Repugnant’ Quote Warning Of Civil War If He’s Impeached




Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger (Ill.) ripped into President Trump for quoting a pastor who said impeaching Trump could trigger a “Civil War-like fracture” in the country.

“I have visited nations ravaged by civil war,” Kinzinger tweeted.

“I have never imagined such a quote to be repeated by a President. This is beyond repugnant,” he added.



The rare rebuke from a Republican Congressman came in response to Trump tweeting a quote from Pastor Robert Jeffress on Fox News.

“‘If the Democrats are successful in removing the President from office (which they will never be), it will cause a Civil War like fracture in this Nation from which our Country will never heal’,” Trump tweeted.

Jeffress, a Dallas-based megachurch pastor and one of Trump’s closest spiritual advisors, has a history of making controversial and offensive comments.




He has called Islam “a religion that promotes pedophilia” and a “heresy from the pit of hell.”

He has also called Mormonism a “cult” that is not a true part of Christianity and said “you can’t be saved by being a Jew.”
