Inside a number of hours the tweet had gained greater than 16,000 likes and 4,000 retweets.
“The RINO’s want Trump impeached? I’m shocked!!,” one Twitter person commented.

The decision defending President Trump was launched Thursday by Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., chairman of the Home Judiciary Committee, and had been signed by each Senate Republican besides the trio, Graham told The Hill on Friday.
Graham’s decision calls on Home Democrats to permit Trump to “confront his accusers” and to permit Republicans to difficulty subpoenas to witnesses of their selecting, in response to The Hill.

The president has usually opted to not return fireplace — however final March referred to Coulter as a “Wacky Nut Job,” insisting he was “profitable on the Border” regardless of having “a whole Democrat Occasion of Far Left Radicals in opposition to me (to not point out sure Republicans who’re sadly unwilling to struggle).”
