Trump says Democrats staging a 'coup' against him to 'take away the power of the people'
Trump termed his call to Ukraine President Zelensky perfect and said the other 'fake' transcripts were a 'democratic hoax.'
President Donald Trump's Twitter has added yet another accusation to the already long list after the recent impeachment inquiry was brought into play. On October 1, Trump tweeted that the Democrats had been staging a "coup" against him. He said online, "As I learn more and more each day, I am coming to the conclusion that what is taking place is not an impeachment, it is a COUP, intended to take away the Power of the People, their VOTE, their Freedoms, their Second Amendment, Religion, Military, Border Wall, and their God-given rights as a Citizen of The United States of America!"
A whistleblower complaint led to the launch of the impeachment inquiry with Trump's dealings with Ukraine. In a phone call with the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, he is accused of using political pressure to urge him to look into then vice president Joe Biden and his son Hunter. Biden is a presidential candidate for the 2020 elections. At first, he denied the existence of a phone call and later accepted it but still maintains that it was nothing but a "perfect" call.
"The congratulatory phone call with the Ukrainian President was PERFECT, unless you heard Liddle’ Adam Schiff’s fraudulently made-up version of the call," he tweeted, referencing Schiff reading of the transcript. Calling it "fake news" he said, "So if the so-called “Whistleblower” has all second-hand information, and almost everything he has said about my “perfect” call with the Ukrainian President is wrong (much to the embarrassment of Pelosi & Schiff), why aren’t we entitled to interview & learn everything about... the Whistleblower, and also the person who gave all of the false information to him."
Reiterating, he said the conversation had been nothing but "nicer, warmer, or better. No pressure at all (as confirmed by Ukrainian Pres). It is just another Democrat Hoax!"
In one of his tweets, after taking shots at Nancy Pelosi, he also suggested that Schiff be arrested for treason. "Rep. Adam Schiff illegally made up a FAKE & terrible statement, pretended it to be mine as the most important part of my call to the Ukrainian President, and read it aloud to Congress and the American people. It bore NO relationship to what I said on the call. Arrest for Treason?" he said, before calling the impeachment inquiry, a "Witch Hunt".
