WATCH: Trump on immigration and impeachment, saying ‘we want no violence’
On his way to Texas, President Trump condemns the recent violence in D.C., while calling impeachment attempts 'the greatest witch hunt in the history of politics.'
WASHINGTON (KLKN) — Before departing for Texas on Marine One, President Donald Trump delivered brief remarks on immigration and the recent violent protests.
As for the current impeachment efforts, the President said “it’s causing tremendous danger to our country, and it’s causing tremendous anger.”
When asked about a reported upcoming Pro-Trump march, and if he would tell his supporters to call it off, the President made no comment.
Below is a transcription of his remarks:
We’re going to Texas regarding the southern border. As you know, we’ve completed the wall and they want to expand it. We have the expansion underway. It’s been tremendously successful, far beyond what anyone thought. We’re stopping, in large numbers, the drugs coming into the country for many many years and decades. We’re stopping a lot of illegal immigration; our numbers have been very good.
There does seem to be a surge now because people are coming up. Some caravans are starting to form because they think there is going to be a lot in it for them if they are able to get through, but we’re able to stop it. The wall has made a tremendous difference. I think some of you are coming with me but, the wall has made a tremendous difference on the southern border.
As far as this is concerned, we want no violence. Never violence. We want absolutely no violence, and on the impeachment it’s really a continuation of the greatest witch hunt in the history of politics. It’s ridiculous. It’s absolutely ridiculous. This impeachment is causing tremendous anger, and you’re doing it, and it’s really a terrible thing that they’re doing. For Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, to continue on this path, I think it’s causing tremendous danger to our country, and it’s causing tremendous anger, I want no violence. Thank you very much.
