The tweet came in response to a message from Rep.

Jordan was reacting to news that Steyer had invested money in television ads to run in the congressman's district that calls for Republicans to hold the president accountable.

Steyer launched the Need to Impeach campaign in 2017 and has poured millions of dollars into the effort to remove Trump from office. He announced in January he would not run for president in 2020, and would instead focus on ensuring Trump did not remain president.

Need to Impeach announced Tuesday a new ad campaign urging Republican voters to hold Trump accountable through their representatives.

Jordan and Meadows are two of the president's fiercest defenders.

Trump late Tuesday retweeted several messages from his supporters who downplayed or criticized a new investigative effort from House Democrats looking at the president's campaign, administration and business.
