President Trump on Monday demanded that his “hoax” impeachment trial “end quickly” in the Senate because he is “so busy.”
Trump lashed out against impeachment in a series of tweets, calling it as a “scam,” “hoax” and “witch hunt” and saying it was “sad” that Democrats were focused on impeaching him at a time when he is “so busy.”
“The Impeachment Hoax, just a continuation of the Witch Hunt which started even before I won the Election, must end quickly,” Trump tweeted Monday morning.
“Read the Transcripts, see the Ukrainian President’s strong statement, NO PRESSURE — get this done,” Trump continued, referring to the summary of his calls with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
“It is a con game by the Dems to help with the Election!” Trump alleged.
“This was not what the Founders had in mind!” Trump later wrote.
The tweets were Trump’s first since he returned to Washington from a two-week stay at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, where he visited his Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach 14 times during his Florida vacation.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has delayed sending the articles of impeachment accusing Trump of abusing his power and obstructing Congress to the Senate over questions about the fairness of a trial in the GOP-controlled Senate.
