Trump Claims US Economy Will ‘Totally Collapse’ If Democrats Take Control


President Donald Trump binged Fox News tonight, which led to him claiming that the US economy will “totally collapse” if Democrats do take the House and impeach him.

“Crazy Maxine Waters: ‘After we impeach Trump, we’ll go after Mike Pence. We’ll get him,'” tweeted Trump. “Where are the Democrats coming from? The best Economy in the history of our country would totally collapse if they ever took control!”

Trump’s comments on the matter come just after Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters doubled down on her impeachment comments.

“There’s a difference in how some of our leadership talk about how we should handle all of this,” Waters said. “They say, ‘Maxine, please don’t say impeachment anymore.’”

“And when they say that, I say ‘impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment,'” she added.

Though, is not clear why the president believes America’s economy will be destroyed if he is impeached, as he did not elaborate on the claim.

That wasn’t Trump’s only Fox News inspired tweet of the night. After watching a Tucker Carlson segment with former Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz, the president suggested the special counsel “was illegally and very unfairly set up.”
