Type: Threatens ViolenceSep 29 2019 Severity: Targeted: Democratic PartyAbout: Ukraine
Donald Trump shared a quote from right-wing mega church preacher Robert Jeffress who hysterically warned of a second civil war in the United States if Donald Trump were removed from office. The pastor has long been a strong proponent of Donald even though the President behaves in a way that is completely antithetical to the Christian way of life. Trump's sharing of the quote elicited widespread condemnation from Democrats and even some Republicans who warned that Trump is fanning the flames of already high tensions in the country.
Quote | The shocking post elicited widespread condemnation from members of both parties.
"I have never seen the Evangelical Christians 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," Trump tweeted, selectively quoting and amending what Evangelical leader Robert Jeffress said on Fox News. "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."
