Unlike the reveal of the Mueller Report, the Trump Impeachment Inquiry has shown some cracks in GOP’s armor. While they haven’t said that they want the President removed, some Republican lawmakers have supported the inquiry. And Senator Mitt Romney reportedly has a secret Twitter account that “liked” a tweet about Trump’s removal.
For the most part, though, the GOP has defended Donald Trump against the oncoming inquiry. For the President, however, it hasn’t been enough. Today, Trump encouraged all GOP lawmakers to get tougher in this battle against Democrats.
The President’s message came during a Republican cabinet meeting. He said of Democrats, “The two things they have: They’re vicious and they stick together. They don’t have Mitt Romney in their midst. They don’t have people like that.”
He continued, “I watched a couple of people on television today. They were talking about what a phony deal it is. What a phony investigation it is.”
He then asked for additional help. “And Republicans have to get tougher and fight,” said Trump. “We have some that are great fighters, but they have to get tougher and fight because the Democrats are trying to hurt the Republican party for the election, which is coming up, where we’re doing very well.”
The President also took a shot at former Republicans who are now referred to as Never Trumpers. He said the former GOP members, “might be worse than the Democrats. He saw a silver lining, though, remarking, “The good news is they’re dying off fast.”
