Trump singles out congresswomen of color during tweet attack on impeachment proceedings

Published

on

President Donald Trump was watching the impeachment proceedings Thursday morning, if his tweets are any indication. Despite multiple Democrats speaking in the morning session, Trump attacked only two women of color in his tweet: Reps. Veronica Escobar and Sheila Jackson Lee, both from Texas.

“Dems Veronica Escobar and Jackson Lee purposely misquoted my call,” Trump claimed in his tweet. “I said I want you to do us (our Country!) a favor, not me a favor. They know that but decided to LIE in order to make a fraudulent point! Very sad.”

The only other woman of color who spoke before Trump tweeted was Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA).

After five months of claims the call was “perfect,” Trump finally came up with an excuse that his extortion of Ukraine was for the United States, which is why he said, “do us a favor.”

It’s a fact disputed by all officials testifying, who revealed that Trump wasn’t interested in an actual corruption investigation, merely the announcement of one.

Democratic prosecutors on Friday wrapped up three days of arguments for seeking Donald Trump's removal from office, as the US president's lawyers prepared to take their turn presenting his defense in the Senate's historic impeachment trial.

For a final eight-hour stretch, the 100 senators listened as Democrats argued that Trump abused the power of the presidency in pressuring Ukraine to launch investigations that would help him politically and then sought to block efforts by Congress to investigate.

Democrats said they had met the burden of proof as they warned Republicans that Trump would remain a grave danger to the nation if left in office.

Sens. Tom Cotton (R-AR), Jim Risch (R-ID) Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and John Barrasso also said that the report was false.
