President Trump broke days of public silence as he boarded Marine One then Air Force One to head for Alamo, Texas in the Tuesday morning.
In his first public remarks since last Wednesday, the president slammed Democrats, accusing them of creating “tremendous danger” with their attempt to remove him from office and said he wanted “no violence.”
President Trump defended his speech at a rally on ellipse.
“If you read my speech – and many people have done it and I’ve seen it both in the papers and in the media, on television, it is been analyzed – and people thought that what I said was totally appropriate,” he said as he boarded Air Force One to head for Alamo, Texas, on the Mexican border, to inspect the border wall.
“They’ve analyzed my speech and my words and my final paragraph, my final sentence and everybody to a tee thought it was totally appropriate,” Trump continued.
Trump said he wanted no violence from his supporters. “We want no violence, never violence. We want absolutely no violence,” he said.
“And 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,” he said.
“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, I want no violence,” he said.
