President Donald trump said in a video on Twitter that the push by Democrats in Congress for his impeachment is “the greatest fraud in the history of American politics“.
“Democrats want to take away your guns, they want to take away your health care, they want to take away your voice, they want to take away your freedom, – said trump in the video, filmed near the White house. – It’s very simple: they try to stop me, because I’m fighting for you“.

This video was filmed after a new poll by NPR-PBS NewsHour-Marist showed that 49% of respondents supported the impeachment, 10% more than in April.
The speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi last week announced its intention to launch impeachment proceedings, claiming that the President has violated his oath by asking the President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky to conduct an investigation against the son of former us Vice-President Joe Biden, hunter. Democrats argue that the transcript of the conversation of the heads of States demonstrated a clear attempt by trump to exert excessive pressure on the Ukrainian government to convince Zelensky to start a criminal investigation against Biden, which is currently the main contender from the Democratic party in the elections of 2020.
Trump insists that in a telephone conversation with Zelensky was nothing bad, but also called the Democrats “savages“. During his trip to new York and the first meeting with trump, the Ukrainian President also stressed that he had not received pressure from the White house.
