The outgoing US President Donald Trump has opposed the move to impeach him and warned that it has triggered “tremendous anger.” In a statement on Tuesday, Trump even defended his speech from last week to thousands of supporters, encouraging them to march on Congress.

“They’ve analyzed my speech in my words and my final paragraph, my final sentence, and everybody to the tee just thought it was totally appropriate,” Trump said, as he boarded Marine One at the White House for a trip to Texas.
His statement has come at the time when Democrats say the House will consider the impeachment of President Donald Trump on Wednesday, one week after an angry mob of his supporters invaded the Capitol.
The Democrats and an increasing number of fellow Republicans have accused Donald Trump over the riot, following a rally in which Trump repeated unsubstantiated allegations of vote fraud. Five people died in the attack, including a Capitol police officer.
Trump at the moment has been shunned by former supporters, barred by social media, and now facing a second impeachment for allegedly inciting the crow against Congress on January 6.
The vote to impeach President Trump is expected to take place on Wednesday. This is the Democrats’ first step toward making Trump the first president in history to be impeached twice. According to the latest media reports, at least 210 House members have co-sponsored the measure.
