Donald Trump’s Impeachment Would Spark ‘Civil War’

President Donald Trump said in a tweet that if he is removed from office, a “civil war” might erupt in the United States. The president was quoting Pastor Robert Jeffress, a Fox News contributor and host, who suggested that impeaching the president would lead to “civil war.”

“If the Democrats are successful in removing the President from office (which they will never be), it will cause a Civil War like a fracture in this Nation from which our Country will never heal,” Mr. Trump tweeted, attributing the quote to Jeffress.

Jeffress did more or less say that on “Fox & Friends” – with Mr. Trump adding his thoughts in the parenthesis of the tweet, saying he will never be removed from office. The president’s repetition of the quote received widespread backlash – including from his own party.

I have visited nations ravaged by civil war. @realDonaldTrump I have never imagined such a quote to be repeated by a President. This is beyond repugnant. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1178477539653771264

Here’s the money quote from that thread. This is the truth. This is where we are. We ARE on the verge of a HOT civil war. Like in 1859. That’s where we are. And the Right has ZERO trust or respect for anything the left is doing. We see THEM as illegitimate too.@StewartRhodesOK https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1178477539653771264
