Donald Trump decided to use the opening of the 70th anniversary celebration summit of NATO to make it all about himself and attack House Democrats over the ramping up effort to impeach and remove him from office.
Trump called Democrats “unpatriotic” and argued that the impeachment inquiry is, “a bad thing for our country.” We can finally agree with Trump on something, the impeachment is bad for the country, but it’s necessary and entirely his fault for committing impeachable offenses.
“The impeachment witch-hunt is a continuation of the hoax that has been going on for years,” Trump continued, while giving the opening remarks of the NATO summit with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg. “I think it’s very unpatriotic of the Democrats to put on a performance.”
Trump and many members of his administration, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, White House counsel Pat Cipollone and adviser Kellyanne Conway, all whined about House Democrats holding impeachment hearings during Trump’s trip, but here he is bringing it up himself. We are done with the lying.
The opening remarks can bee seen in the footage below if you’d like to watch and confirm. Trump also attacked Macron and France for Macron’s comments about NATO being “brain dead.”
