Trump: If I’m Impeached ‘Everybody Would be Very Poor’ And ‘Markets Would Crash’
It appears as if President Trump has perhaps switched his narrative from ‘no collusion’ to ‘don’t impeach me,’ at least if you go by a statement he made this morning on Fox News regarding the prospects of impeachment.
Zeek Miller, a White House Reporter for the Associated Press, posted the following quote from the president early this morning:
“If I ever got impeached, I think the market would crash. I think everybody would be very poor. Because without this thinking [points to head] you would see, you would see numbers that you wouldn’t believe in reverse.”
Trump appears to be trying to equate the stock market’s future and the economy to his impeachment, driving fears down the spines of investors and corporate executives should Congress opt to impeach him next year.
This morning, during a Fox and Friends interview, the president once again spoke about impeachment, telling Fox News’ Ainsley Earhardt, “You know, I guess it says something like high crimes and all — I don’t know how you can impeach somebody who has done a great job.”
Currently Republicans control the House of Representative and have yet to show any sign that they are even considering impeachment as an option, but many political analysts believe that Democrats will win back the House in November, equating to an almost certain impeachment. To impeach a sitting president, a majority of the House must vote to do so.
With crucial House elections just 75 days away, last night one of the president’s biggest supporters, Sean Hannity, also highlighted to his viewers that if Democrats win in November, the president will almost certainly be impeached.
