President Trump predicted that if he were ever impeached, the market would crash because it would put at risk his plan to keep creating jobs in the U.S.
“I’ll tell you what, if I ever got impeached, I think the market would crash,” he said in a Fox News interview that aired Thursday. “I think everybody would be very poor, because without this thinking, you would see numbers that you wouldn’t believe, in reverse.”
“I don’t know how you can impeach somebody who’s done a great job,” he added.
Democrats are again talking about impeaching Trump if they’re able to re-take the House in the November midterm elections. Some have wanted him impeached since he took office, but others said claims from his former lawyer Michael Cohen that Trump directed him to violate campaign finance laws is a new possible basis for impeachment.
