President Donald Trump lashed out at the impeachment inquiry during a speech before a designated hate group on Saturday.

Trump spoke at the Values Voters Summit in Washington, DC after spending the day at Trump National Golf Course.

The summit is hosted by the Family Research Council, which is designated as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

“And now it is the outrageous impeachment,” Trump said. “Impeachment. I never thought I would see or hear that word in regard to me, impeachment.”

Trump described impeachment as “a very ugly word.”

“It means horrible, horrible crimes and things. I can’t even believe it,” he argued.

Less than 20 minutes later, Trump had changed his tune about not expecting to hear impeachment in regards to his administration.

“So I came in and in the first couple of days they said, by the way — I had a couple of other things going too — including the fact that a couple of minutes after I was sworn in, The Washington Post wrote a story that the impeachment starts right now,” Trump said. “Right after I got sworn in, I took the oath of office and they did that story — literally a very few minutes after I was sworn in — that the road to impeachment starts right now.”

At the public impeachment hearing on Tuesday, Democratic counsel Daniel Goldman asked Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman about President Donald Trump's anti-Ukraine conspiracy theories discussed on the phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Vindman stated flatly that he had seen no evidence to support any of them and noted that they were being promoted by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"President Trump asks President Zelensky for a favor, and then raises this theory of Ukrainian interference in the 2016 election," said Goldman. "He says in the highlighted portion, 'I would like you to do us a favor though. Because our country has been through a lot. And Ukraine knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine. They say CrowdStrike. I guess you have one of your wealthy people. The server, they say Ukraine has it.' Now, Col. Vindman, was this statement based on the official talking points that you had prepared?"
