United States billionaire Tom Steyer kicked off an online and TV advertising campaign against President Donald Trump, asking people to write letters to Congress members for the president's impeachment. The commercial features Steyer himself accusing Trump of various impeachable offenses, and calling on Republican lawmakers to reject party unity and begin the process of removing Trump from office.
Stayer posted a video in which he said that trump threatens media, is investment of foreign powers, and led USA to the brink of nuclear war.
"Trump threatens our Constitution, our freedoms and our lives".
On the website, Mr Styer wrote an open letter to "elected official", saying "I am asking you today to make public your position on the impeachment of Donald Trump, and to urge your federal representatives to remove him from office at once".

They note that O'Reilly's new contract stipulated they had the ability to fire him should new allegations arise. This would also be the sixth and largest settlement resulting from the string of allegations against O'Reilly.
Other Democrats believe impeachment efforts are ill-advised because they will fail and could energize Republicans.
In the first TV spot, which debuted Thursday, Steyer charges Trump with taking the U.S.
Steyer, who is considering running against Feinstein in next year's election, criticizes Trump in the letter for "actively sabotaging" Obamacare and for "repealing clean air protections and unleashing polluters". If Steyer does have political ambitions of his own, his new ad campaign could serve a dual goal by both advancing the Trump impeachment effort and simultaneously bolstering Steyer's own progressive bona fides and name recognition in California and beyond.
Democrats in Washington are divided over whether attempting impeachment is a smart move.
