Impeachment Coup and Civil War?

Trump repeats a warning to Democrats about their divisive obstruction strategy.

Donald Trump shared a warning from Pastor Robert Jeffress about a “Civil War-like fracture” given that Democrats are, again, undertaking what has all the markings of a coup d'état to remove him from office. The point was to assert that using deep-state operatives to overthrow a presidency is tantamount to insurrection.

Jeffress said, “Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats can’t put down the impeachment match. They know they couldn’t beat [Trump] in 2016 against Hillary Clinton, and they’re increasingly aware of the fact that they won’t win against him in 2020, and impeachment is the only tool they have to get rid of Donald Trump. And the Democrats don’t care if they burn down and destroy this nation in the process.”

In fact, he continued, “I don’t pretend to speak for all Evangelicals, but this week I have been traveling the country and I’ve literally spoken to thousands and thousands of evangelical Christians. I have never seen them more angry over any issue than this attempt to illegitimately remove this president from office — overturn the 2016 election and negate the votes of millions of evangelicals in the process. And they know that the only impeachable offense President Trump has committed was beating Hillary Clinton in 2016. That’s the unpardonable sin for which the Democrats will never forgive him.” Jeffress predicted, “If the Democrats are successful in removing the president from office, I’m afraid it will cause a Civil War-like fracture in this nation from which this country will never heal.”

Democrats have only two things to offer in 2020: socialist redistribution of wealth by way of an endless list of “free” stuff in return for votes, and impeachment to appeal for votes from those suffering severe Trump Derangement Syndrome. And, on top of that, they are openly proposing to confiscate guns. Unfortunately, these combined threats to Liberty make the reference to “civil war” relevant.
