A Pennsylvania Trump supporter fought back tears on Tuesday as she expressed frustration with House Democrats after they unveiled articles of impeachment against the president earlier in the day.
MSNBC reporter Monica Alba spoke to a number of supporters as they waited in line ahead of a Trump rally in Hershey, Pa., about the latest development in the impeachment inquiry.
“Every time the Democrats do something outrageous to push for this nonsensical impeachment, it motivates me to make another $25 donation to the campaign,” one man donning a “Make America Great Again” hat and pin bearing the same slogan told the network.
“I swear as long as I live I will never vote for a Democrat again,” he said, adding: “I don’t care if it’s my best friend or a relative of mine. I will never vote for a Democrat as long as I live.”
One woman, also wearing “Make America Great Again” apparel, said she believed the impeachment inquiry is “really going to help him in the election.”
“People are fed up with the Democrats, how they’re acting,” she added.
A third supporter wearing red, white and blue strings on her hat said she was “breaking up” over the news of the impeachment articles, which charge the president with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress over his dealings with Ukraine.
“And I’m very upset today,” she said as she sniffled and fought back tears. “I’m glad I’m here. But I think it’s so hard because he’s done such a great job and this is the way that he’s being treated. It’s very upsetting to me.”
“Nothing’s gonna change my mind, I don’t care,” she said. “We’re voting for Trump. I don’t care.”
An African-American supporter of President Trump said that he did not trust the “so-called experts” on impeachment because “they are the ones that got us into trouble that the United States has been in for a while.”
“Nobody’s perfect,” another man donned in Trump gear said. “He hasn’t been without mistakes. But he certainly has done more things right than wrong. And he’s done a lot for this country with jobs and supporting the military and everything that he does. It’s just wonderful.”
