#ImpeachTrumpNow Trends On Twitter: Americans Say President Committed ‘Treason’ by Saying He Would Take Help From Russia

90-Trump
Trump is a racist, a traitor and a conman, who runs a racist cult of racist fools following him down the drain.  But they are actually far worse than he is. He’s just a criminal, they are absolute evil.  Twitter was alight on Thursday morning with calls to “impeach Trump now.” Americans were accusing President Donald Trump of treason after saying in a television interview that he would be willing to take foreign information on a rival in the upcoming 2020 election. 16-trump-putin-4_w710_h473The hashtag “#ImpeachTrumpNow” trended on the social media platform after Trump said during an on-camera interview with ABC News that he would be willing to accept damaging information on an election opponent, even if the intel came from a foreign government.

 

Ignoring warnings that such a decision could amount to allowing electoral interference by a foreign power, the president said: “It’s not interference. They have information, I think I’d take it.”

 

“If I thought there was something wrong, I’d go, maybe, to the FBI—if I thought there was something wrong,” he said.

 

“But, when somebody comes up with oppo [opposition] research, right… If you go and talk honestly to Congressmen, they all do it, they always have, and that’s the way it is,” Trump said. “It’s called oppo research.”

 

While the president appeared unconcerned about making such a claim despite already having spent the majority of his presidency battling allegations of collusion with foreign powers, specifically Russia, in the 2016 election race, social media users were shocked by the exchange.

 

“TREASON,” Dena Grayson, a former Democratic candidate for U.S. Congress, wrote in a tweet sharing a clip of the interview.

 

“[Trump] says he would NOT be obligated to alert the FBI if a foreign country—such as #Russia or #China—offered dirt on his 2020 opponent,” she said, adding a shocked emoji for good measure.
