He also went after renewed calls for his impeachment, calling Democrats "Obstructionists."

"Impeach for what, having created perhaps the greatest Economy in our Country’s history, rebuilding our Military, taking care of our Vets (Choice), Judges, Best Jobs Numbers Ever, and much more?" Trump wrote. "Dems are Obstructionists!"

 

Democrats have increasingly called for an impeachment inquiry into the president after his administration defied several congressional subpoenas.
