99re久久热最新地址一-As Democrats begin an impeachment inquiry, President Trump spent Sunday vigorously defending himself on Twitter and sharing cable news clips of his most ardent devotees insisting that he did nothing wrong in asking the Ukrainian president to investigate his political rival, former vice president Joe Biden.
秋霞66手机版-Trump highlighted one quote from a longtime evangelical pastor warning of particularly dire consequences if the Democrats follow through.
超级人碰人摸大公鸡免费视频-“If the Democrats are successful in removing the President from office (which they will never be), it will cause a Civil War like fracture in this Nation from which our Country will never heal,” Trump tweeted, adding his own parenthetical to a quote from Robert Jeffress, a Southern Baptist preacher speaking on “Fox & Friends Weekend” on Sunday.
99re久久热最新地址一-Trump’s tweet invoking civil war marks a notable escalation in his rhetoric about the impeachment inquiry and also highlights his close relationship with Jeffress, a pastor known for viciously attacking other faiths who holds sway over both evangelical voters and the president.

秋霞66手机版-House Democrat Don Beyer of Virginia urged other Republicans to join Kinzinger in denouncing Trump’s rhetoric, tweeting, “The president is testing to see who will echo or silently accept threats of violence.”
超级人碰人摸大公鸡免费视频-Presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke, too, called upon GOP members to speak out. Trump’s words can have violent consequences, the former Democratic representative tweeted, citing the mass shooting in El Paso and asking for Republicans to decry him “before more are harmed in his name.”
超级人碰人摸大公鸡免费视频-Two Senate Democrats, Chris Murphy (Conn.) and Brian Schatz (Hawaii), also condemned the president’s tweet in a back-and-forth in which Murphy described the message as “so frightening.”
秋霞66手机版-“He is going to keep talking like this,” Murphy tweeted, “and some people are going to listen and do what he asks.”
99re久久热最新地址一-The idea of a U.S. civil war did not come from Trump directly. Instead, he quoted a high-profile and contentious Texas pastor who has stood with the president since the earliest days of the 2016 campaign.
偷偷要费观看视频在 线-Since then, the pastor has been one of Trump’s most outspoken supporters. He uses the Bible to defend the president’s actions and brushes away allegations of immoral conduct, from extramarital affairs to alleged sexual assault, by emphasizing Trump’s record on filling the judiciary with conservative justices and pushing for policies that limit access to abortion.
秋霞66手机版-Since Democrats began moving toward impeachment last week, Jeffress has repeatedly sounded grim warnings. On Friday, he told Fox Business Network host Lou Dobbs, “I really don’t like what’s going to happen to this nation” if impeachment succeeds, adding, “If he is removed, this country is finished.”
99re久久热最新地址一-The Jeffress quote that Trump tweeted Sunday evening is the first time the president has referenced civil war on Twitter. But as The Washington Post’s Greg Jaffe and Jenna Johnson have reported, cable news pundits on both sides of the spectrum have already begun using the term with regularity to describe the nation’s political conflict.
2019香蕉国偷产拍视频-In one notable case in February, former U.S. attorney Joseph diGenova on Fox News and Trump critic and political analyst Nicolle Wallace on MSNBC both declared that the U.S. was “in a civil war,” though both pundits later walked back their rhetoric to claim they meant a war of words and ideas. Although it is “not entirely out of the question,” Stanford University political scientist James Fearon told The Post in March that he dismissed the idea of the United States being on the verge of a war with itself as “basically absurd.”
偷偷要费观看视频在 线-It’s not clear from Trump’s tweet or Jeffress’s interview whether he was referencing actual violence as the outcome of an impeachment, but many critics said that the president’s use of the term was troubling. The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment clarifying the president’s intentions.
2019香蕉国偷产拍视频-The Oath Keepers, a far-right militia group composed of former military and law enforcement officers, apparently took the message literally, saying in a Twitter thread that the United States is “on the verge of a HOT civil war. Like in 1859.”
超级人碰人摸大公鸡免费视频-The group claims to protect the Constitution “against all enemies,” which, they say, includes Democrats who are trying to impede Trump’s “rightful power." The organization is described by the Southern Poverty Law Center as “one of the largest radical anti-government groups in the U.S. today."

秋霞66手机版-Schatz echoed that concern.
秋霞66手机版-“This is just a reprehensible way to talk and people could get hurt,” Schatz tweeted. “It’s clear now [Trump] will allow the Republican Party to eat itself and will tear the country apart if he thinks it gives him an advantage of any kind.”
