Trump: 'Democrats Want To Take Away Your Freedom'
President weighs in on Democrats push to impeach him
“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,” Trump said in the video.
“They want to take away everything. We can never let this happen,” he said.
“We’re fighting to drain the swamp, and that’s exactly what I’m doing.”
The video dropped as a new NPR-PBS NewsHour-Marist poll found 49 percent of responding supported impeachment.
The short ad also takes aim at Democrats and accomplices in the establishment media who are flipping the scandal and using it to call for President Trump's impeachment.
Trump posted the new video to Twitter with a caption that simply reads:
"I AM DRAINING THE SWAMP."

According to the Boston Herald, the video is part of President Trump’s $10 million re-election ad campaign.
The new campaign seems to be focusing on exposing Joe Biden by highlighting the former vice president’s dealings with Ukraine.
The video is due to hit the airwaves Sunday as the president faces an impeachment inquiry over claims that he pressured Ukraine’s leader to probe the Democratic presidential hopeful.
Last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the formal impeachment inquiry against Trump.
Pelosi said, "the president must be held accountable" for the "betrayal of his oath of office, betrayal of our national security, and the betrayal of the integrity of our elections."
