Trump cries ‘impeachment hoax’ at China trade deal signing as House debates sending articles to Senate

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Wednesday used a China trade deal event to rant about “the impeachment hoax.”

Trump made the remarks at a White House gathering for the signing of phase one of a China trade deal that was scheduled to occur while the House of Representatives voted to send articles of impeachment to the Senate.

“Tremendous numbers of people here and I think, should I introduce them?” Trump said from the podium in the East Room. “I think I should because, what the hell, this is a celebration.”

The president noted that “congressman may have a vote and it’s on the impeachment hoax so, if you want, you go out and vote.”

“It’s not going to matter because it’s going very well,” Trump added. “But I’d rather have you voting than sitting here listening to me introduce you. Okay? They have a hoax going on over there. Let’s take care of it.”

“What a job you’ve done,” he remarked. “I just want to thank you all. Really tough. I love that.”

At that point, the president move on by thanking Fox Business personality Lou Dobbs for saying that he was a better commander-in-chief than Abraham Lincoln or George Washington.

The message warned "posting negative comments" that put "senior leaders" in a bad light is counterproductive, and urges everyone to stay out of the "negative media spotlight."

On Monday, Politico reported that some health officials in the Trump administration are privately "unsettled" by the president's ongoing fascination with hydroxychloroquine, the drug primarily used to treat malaria, lupus, and arthritis that is now being suggested as a treatment for the novel coronavirus.

The president has repeatedly touted hydroxychloroquine as a possible miracle cure, and has even suggested he might start taking it himself, even though his tests for COVID-19 have been reported as negative and even though there's a lack of data that it is safe or effective for that purpose.
