Detroit News reports signs praising the president lined up on Woodward Avenue Saturday as supporters of Donald Trump rallied to “end the madness” of his impeachment inquiry.
Flags as big as 16-feet-long reading “Trump 2020” waved above more than 70 Oakland County residents who braved the cold to show their stance after the House Judiciary Committee approved articles of impeachment.
Marian Sheridan, co-founder of Michigan Trump Republicans, organized the rally because Michigan will be a key state in 2020 and voters “know when they are being scammed,” she said.
“We feel like we’re being ignored,” she said. “(House Speaker) Nancy Pelosi promised bipartisanship and here we are with no government support. The swamp dwellers have crept to a new low with an impeachment process that could have been done to any sitting president. Obama could have been impeached on Benghazi or IRS targeting certain groups.”
Sheridan said Republicans in their county don’t believe the allegations against Trump.
“(Democrats) hope to win by smearing his name, (and) we felt now was the time to end the madness,” Sheridan said. “This is just an abuse of power by Congress.”
Christian Slater, a spokesman for the Michigan Democratic Party, said Saturday that “Michigan voters know the truth.”
“Donald Trump abused the power of his office and put his political and personal interests ahead of our national security by pressuring a foreign power to interfere in our election,” he said in an emailed statement. “Between his abuses of power on the international stage and his broken promises at home on health care, clean water, and the economy, Michigan’s working families know they can’t afford four more years of Donald Trump.”
The anti-impeachment group lined up in front of the Oakland County Republican Party’s office Saturday with signs reading “Detention centers do not have firing squads,” “Impeach Congress,” and “UAW for Trump.”
