DailyMail. President Trump on Sunday tweeted a quote from a Baptist pastor who said that his removal from office would ‘cause a Civil War like fracture… from which our country will never heal.’
Trump’s tweet was quoting Pastor Robert Jeffress, who appeared early Sunday morning on the Fox News Channel’s Fox & Friends show.
Jeffress, an evangelical who is a staunch supporter of the president, is the Southern Baptist pastor of the First Baptist Church in Dallas.
The church, whose congregation numbers 13,000, is considered one of the more influential in the American evangelical community.
‘They know they couldn’t beat him 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 J. Trump.
‘And the Democrats don’t care if they burn down and destroy this nation in the process.’
Earlier on Sunday, Trump said he wants and deserves to meet the anonymous whistleblower at the center of the fast-moving scandal that has triggered an impeachment probe against him.
The whistleblower, who could testify soon before Congress, fears for their safety if their identity is revealed, according to a lawyers’ letter released by CBS News.
