President Donald Trump issued his first response to Wednesday's public impeachment inquiry hearing on Twitter:
"What’s going on now is the single greatest scam in the history of American politics," Trump said. "The Democrats want to take away your guns, they want to take away your health care, 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."
"We can never let this happen, we’re fighting to drain the swamp and that’s exactly what I’m doing," he continued.
"It’s all very simple: They're trying to stop me because I'm fighting for you. And I'll never let that happen," the president said.
