'US President Donald Trump responded to the Democrats-led impeachment inquiry by posting an ominous quote from a church leader who warned that removing him from office would inflict “Civil War-like” wounds on the nation.
Known for regularly watching shows on Fox News, Trump apparently liked how the Southern Baptist minister and televangelist Robert Jeffress appeared on the channel on Sunday and blasted the Democrats for wanting to impeach him.
“And I do want to make this prediction this morning: If the Democrats are successful in removing the president from office, I’m afraid it will cause a Civil War-like fracture in this nation from which this country will never heal,” Jeffress said live on air.
Trump then took the quote and posted it on Twitter. He edited Jeffrees’ words a little bit, adding in parenthesis that the Democrats “will never” succeed in impeaching him should they try to do so.
