Donald Trump calls move to impeach 'absolutely ridiculous'

Telegraph, 12 Jan 2021
President Donald Trump told reporters at the White House the prospect of impeachment is causing 'tremendous anger' in the nation but that he wanted 'no violence'

The president spoke as he left for Texas to survey the border wall with Mexico. His remarks were his first to reporters since the Capitol attack.

On impeachment, Trump said it's “a really terrible thing that they're doing." But he said, “We want no violence. Never violence.”

Trump faces a single charge - “incitement of insurrection” - in the impeachment resolution that the House will begin debating Wednesday, a week before Democrat Joe Biden is set to be inaugurated.
