Trump calls efforts to impeach him ‘absolutely ridiculous’

US President Donald Trump calls preparations to impeach him in US Congress “absolutely ridiculous” and says they are causing “tremendous anger.”

Trump, speaking as he boarded Marine One at the White House for a trip to Texas, calls his likely impeachment in the House of Representatives on Wednesday a “continuation of the greatest witch hunt in the history of politics.”
