President Donald Trump on Wednesday morning, Dec. 18 expressed the disbelief in the impeachment of Democrats, saying it’s “a terrible thing.” 

With the House Democrats taking up two articles of impeachment charging Trump with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, the president raised a question.

“Can you believe that I will be impeached today by the Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrats, AND I DID NOTHING WRONG! A terrible Thing,” Trump tweeted. “Read the Transcripts. This should never happen to another President again. Say a PRAYER!”

Polls have indicated that President Trump is now leading in general election, and that the impeachment is actually helping the president in key battleground states that might decide the 2020 election.

Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), the House minority leader, and Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas) said they were among GOP lawmakers who huddled with Trump at the White House Tuesday evening to talk strategy about Wednesday’s hearing and the likely Senate trial that follow early next year.

But McCarthy insisted that President Trump remained focused on moving his agenda for Americans.

“Anybody else this would be traumatic for them,” said McCarthy, who noted that Trump in recent days has hosted White House holiday parties and will head to the 2020 battleground state of Michigan Wednesday evening for a campaign rally. “I’ve never seen a man so strong. … He is focused on what the American people need.”

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham told “Fox & Friends” Trump will have plenty to say about the impeachment vote at his evening campaign rally in Battle Creek. 

Earlier, White House listed out the achievements of President Trump, that Democrats are desperate to distract from.

President Trump sent a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday, exposing Democrats’ partisan impeachment crusade for the unprecedented, unconstitutional sham that it is.

A few important excerpts from the president’s letter:

  • The Articles of Impeachment introduced by the House Judiciary Committee are not recognizable under any standard of Constitutional theory, interpretation, or jurisprudence. They include no crimes, no misdemeanors, and no offenses whatsoever.
  • Speaker Pelosi, you admitted just last week at a public forum that your party’s impeachment effort has been going on for ‘two and a half years,’ long before you ever heard about a phone call with Ukraine.
  • Before the Impeachment Hoax, it was the Russian Witch Hunt.
  • You are the ones interfering in America’s elections. You are the ones subverting America’s Democracy. You are the ones Obstructing Justice. You are the ones bringing pain and suffering to our Republic for your own selfish personal, political, and partisan gain.
  • You and your party are desperate to distract from America’s extraordinary economy, incredible jobs boom, record stock market, soaring confidence, and flourishing citizens. Your party simply cannot compete with our record.
  • Our Founders feared the tribalization of partisan politics, and you are bringing their worst fears to life.
