US President Donald Trump has attacked Mitt Romney, from his own party, as well as Democrats amid their impeachment efforts.
"Not only are the Do Nothing Democrats interfering in the 2020 Election, but they are continuing to interfere in the 2016 Election. They must be stopped!" he tweeted Saturday, as an impeachment inquiry was underway in the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives.
Trump has apparently pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Jo Biden, his potential opponent for the 2020 presidential election, warning that he would not give Ukraine the promised military aid in case he refused.
Trump earlier attacked the whistleblower, whose revelations lie at the heart of the impeachment efforts, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.).
"The so-called Whistleblower’s account of my perfect phone call is 'way off,' not even close," he tweeted."Schiff and Pelosi never thought I would release the transcript of the call. Got them by surprise, they got caught," Trump wrote. "This is a fraud against the American people!"
The impeachment inquiry is based on a whistleblower complaint that accused Trump of "using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country in the 2020 US election."
Trump has dismissed the impeachment probe as an attempted "coup" and a "witch hunt."
The president also attacked Senator Romney by discouraging his supporters.
By all appearances, the President’s brazen and unprecedented appeal to China and to Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden is wrong and appalling.— Mitt Romney (@MittRomney) October 4, 2019
"I’m hearing that the Great People of Utah are considering their vote for their Pompous Senator, Mitt Romney, to be a big mistake. I agree! He is a fool who is playing right into the hands of the Do Nothing Democrats! #IMPEACHMITTROMNEY," Trump tweeted.
This is while impeaching a senator is not an option.
The president has been incessantly posting tweets ever Pelosi announced the formal beginning of the impeachment inquiry.

Trump has also admitted that he asked China to investigate Biden.
"I thought the president made a big mistake by asking China to get involved in investigating a political opponent. ... It’s completely inappropriate," Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) told the Bangor Daily News.
Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) also said in a statement on Thursday night that "Americans don’t look to Chinese commies for the truth."
