Trump: If I Got Impeached ‘The Market Would Crash’ and ‘Everybody Would Be Very Poor’

The midterm elections are roughly 11 weeks away, and the issue of impeaching President Donald Trump has become a talking point, especially in conservative media. The GOP appears to be thinking that if they can successfully make the midterms a referendum on impeachment, they can do better, though the vast majority of Democrats have tamped down impeachment talk instead claiming that the Mueller investigation should first run its course.

Fox & Friends host Ainsley Earhardt, in her interview with Trump that aired on Thursday morning, asked the president if he believes the Democrats will seek to impeach him. He first replied: “I don’t know how you can impeach somebody who has done a great job.”

He added that if he ever got impeached, “I think the market would crash. I think everybody would be very poor because without this thinking, you would see — you would see numbers that you wouldn’t believe.”

He then mentioned Hillary Clinton, regulation, tax cuts and how poorly the economy would be had the “Democrats gotten in.”
