Trump fires up base as impeachment bid blocked in CongressA fired-up Donald Trump took aim once more at Democratic lawmakers who “hate” America as he hit the campaign trail Wednesday, hours after an opposition bid to impeach the US president over “racist” attacks was shot down in Congress. Egging on a sea of supporters in Greenville, North Carolina, Trump reeled off the names of the ethnic minority congresswomen whom he has urged to “go back” to their countries of origin in a series of incendiary tweets. “These left-wing ideologues see our nation as a force of evil,” charged Trump — whose tweets were condemned as “racist” a day earlier by the House of Representatives, although a subsequent attempt to launch impeachment proceedings failed in the chamber.
