Trump then criticized Rep. Debbie Dingell for voting to support impeachment after she made most profuse thank you that you could ever get following her husbands death.
Now, they talk about this phony impeachment, and shes up there, Well, we have to look seriously at our president because he may have violated the Constitution of the United States, he said, which was met with boos from the audience.
Former Rep. John Dingell was the longest-serving member of Congress and died at age 92 in February. His wife succeeded him in office in 2015.
Trump held a rally in Battle Creek, Mich., as House Democrats voted to accept two articles of impeachment against him: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. He will now face a trial in the GOP-controlled Senate.
