While addressing law enforcement officials in Chicago on Monday, Trump compared the impeachment inquiry by House Democrats to the Jussie Smollett “scam.”
“Then you have the case of this wise guy, Jusse Smollett, who beat up…himself,” Trump told the International Association of Chiefs of Police Annual Conference.
“And he said MAGA country did it. MAGA country. OK. It’s a hate crime. It's a hate crime. And it's a scam. It's a real big scam, just like the impeachment of your president is a scam,” Trump added as the crowd cheered.
