Boyle went on to say that "a significant number of Republican friends" in Congress had "expressed their deep concerns" about the president.

Stephanopoulos said, "He said it right there in public".

When pressed by Cupp to give a more precise number of GOP congressional representatives frustrated with the president, Boyle responded that in the House of Representatives he would estimate there were "at least two dozen".

"But I wouldn't be surprised if it's even more than that", he added. Senate Rules Committee Chairman Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) followed suit on Sunday, saying on CBS, "I doubt the China comment was serious".

Romney, who lost the 2012 election to Democratic incumbent President Barack Obama, criticised Trump on Friday for asking China to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, who is seeking the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. "I'm hearing that the Great People of Utah are considering their vote for their Pompous Senator, Mitt Romney, to be a big mistake".

Pelosi called for impeachment probe on USA president.

MSBNC guest Jill Wine-Banks, who was a prosecutor during the Watergate scandal, said on Saturday's AM Joy that a deal could be made with President Donald Trump to make Pelosi president if he is removed from office.

Jill Wine-Banks, one of the prosecutors during the Watergate scandal, then answered Reid's call, predicting how to completely remove Trump and his political legacy from office, thereby manufacturing Pelosi's "House of Cards"-style ascension to the White House".

It is "completely inappropriate" for a president to encourage a foreign state to investigate a political rival, US Senator Susan Collins of ME said Saturday. "They must be stopped!" he said in another tweet.

Trump has repeatedly attacked Schiff for his characterisation of the call.
