An angry Donald Trump on Saturday took to Twitter slamming his political rivals over the worsening Ukraine scandal that has a sword hanging over his head as US Democrats have initiated an impeachment inquiry against him.
The US President posted a 38-second-long video on his official Twitter handle to convey a message that the US “is at stake like never before”.
“They are trying to stop ME, because I am fighting for YOU!” an irate Donald Trump captioned the video tweet.
Donald Trump is facing the risk of impeachment after being accused of calling Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate his political rival Joe Biden, who is contesting the upcoming US Presidential election, and his son.
“What’s going on now is the single-greatest scam in the history of American politics,” Donald Trump said in the video tweet.

“The Democrats want to take away your guns, they want to take away your healthcare, they want to take away your vote, they want to take away your freedom, they want to take away your judges, they want to take away everything,” Trump further said while hitting out at the Democrats.
“We can never let this happen, we’re fighting to drain the swamp. That is exactly what I’m doing. And you see why we have to do it, our county is at stake like never before. It is all very simple, they’re trying to stop me because I’m fighting for you, and I’ll never let that happen,” Donald Trump asserted
Democrats in the US House of Representatives had on September 26 launched a formal impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump, accusing him of seeking foreign help to smear Democratic rival Joe Biden.
The impeachment enquiry could eventually lead to Donald Trump’s removal from office, although that would be a steep task for Democrats. Even if the Democratic-controlled House voted to impeach Trump, the Republican-majority Senate would have to take the next step of removing him from office after a trial. A conviction would require a two-thirds Senate majority.
