Trump says 'of course' Dems want to impeach

Trump says 'of course' Dems want to impeach

Asked by a reporter if it was a "foregone conclusion" that the House of Representatives would vote to impeach, Trump responded, "any Democrat wants to because they're not going to beat me in the election." Trump said that Republicans need to get tougher and fight the Democratic-led impeachment inquiry, rebuking Republican Senator Mitt Romney for publicly voicing criticism of him.

Democrats were sticking together, Trump said.

"They don't have Mitt Romney," Trump told reporters at the beginning of a Cabinet meeting at the White House.

The Democratic-led House of Representatives began the impeachment proceedings last month after Trump sought help from Ukraine against a Democratic political rival, former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, and his son Hunter Biden.

Trump says he did nothing wrong and the impeachment inquiry is politically motivated.
