Trump attacked Republicans who don't support him as "human scum" that are "worse" than Democrats in an angry Twitter rant on Wednesday.
Seemingly taking aim at Republicans like Mitt Romney who have criticized his actions or have yet to show allegiance to him during the current impeachment inquiry, Trump tweeted out:
"The Never Trumper Republicans, though on respirators with not many left, are in certain ways worse and more dangerous for our Country than the Do Nothing Democrats. Watch out for them, they are human scum!"

But his vitriol for the "Never Trump" crew didn't stop there.
He later continued his attacks, this time focusing his wrath on acting Ukraine Diplomat Bill Taylor. The Trump appointee gave testimony before the House committees heading the impeachment probe on Tuesday that Trump actively sought quid pro quo during his call with Ukraine's president.
Trump also blasted Taylor's attorney, John Bellinger.

....Does anybody think this is fair? Even though there was no quid pro quo, I’m sure they would like to try. Worse than the Dems!— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump)1571857124.0
He then put his administration on blast for hiring the "Never Trumpers" in the first place.
