Criticizing the impeachment proceedings against President Trump, GOP Rep. Jim Jordan said Democrats are trying to “cancel the President.”
“It's always been about getting the President no matter what. It's an obsession, an obsession that is now broadened,” he said. “Stop and think about it. Do you have a functioning First Amendment when the cancel culture only allows one side to talk? When you can't even have a debate in this country?”
He warned that the cancel culture will eventually “come for us all.”
“It needs to stop because if it continues it won't just be Republicans who get canceled, it won't just be the President of the United States. The cancel culture will come for us all.”
Instead of impeachment, the focus should be on “bringing the nation together,” the lawmaker from Ohio added.
“In seven days there will be a peaceful transfer of power just like there has been every other time in our country, but Democrats are going to impeach President Trump again. This doesn't unite the country. There is no way this helps the nation deal with the tragic and terrible events of last week that we all condemn.”
