President Trump lashes out at impeachment effort, claims it’s ‘causing tremendous anger’

National News

“As far as this is concerned, we want no violence — never violence,” Trump said outside the White House as headed for a trip to Texas, facing reporters for the first time since his supporters rioted last Wednesday after he urged them to march on the Capitol. “On the impeachment, it’s really a continuation of the greatest witch hunt in the history of politics. It’s ridiculous. It’s absolutely ridiculous. This impeachment is causing tremendous anger, and you’re doing it, and it’s really a terrible thing that they’re doing.”

“For Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer to continue on this path, I think it’s causing tremendous danger to our country, and it’s causing tremendous anger,” Trump added. “I want no violence.”

He began his brief remarks to reports by attacking “Big Tech” for being “dividing and divisive” after he was banned from their platforms.

“I think that Big Tech is doing a horrible thing for our country and to our country,” he said. “And I believe it’s going to be a catastrophic mistake for them. They’re dividing and divisive, and they’re showing something that I’ve been predicting for a long time. I’ve been predicting it for a long time, and people didn’t act on it. But I think Big Tech has made a terrible mistake, and very very bad for our country.”

He said the tech industry’s approach “causes a lot of problems and a lot of danger” and “there’s always a counter-move when they do that.” He did not elaborate.

“And that’s leading others to do the same thing,” he said. “And it causes a lot of problems and a lot of danger. Big mistake, they shouldn’t be doing it. But there’s always a counter-move when they do that. I’ve never seen such anger as I see right now, and that’s a terrible thing. Terrible thing.”
