1M people sign Dem donor’s petition to impeach Trump: report

Tom Steyer’s petition to impeach President Trump has reportedly gathered more than 1 million signatures in the 10 days since the Democratic mega-donor started his campaign.

Axios reported that the petition, which the billionaire has been promoting through advertisements and letters to lawmakers, has been signed 1,119,720 times.

Steyer began calling for impeachment earlier this month, writing letters to Democrats on Capitol Hill and to mayors and governors nationwide. In those letters, he calls on officials to publicize their stances on impeaching Trump, saying they “have a duty to speak out.”

{mosads}Steyer launched a multimillion-dollar ad campaign slamming Trump’s actions on health care, immigration and the environment. The campaign included a television ad that ran during “Fox and Friends,” a show the president is known to watch often.

Trump responded to Steyer’s calls for impeachment on Twitter, calling him “wacky” and “unhinged.”
