The call to impeach Trump increased as his associates have been embroiled in an array of legal woes. Former Trump campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, was found guilty on eight charges including tax fraud on Tuesday. Also, Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, admitted to violating campaign-finance law at Trump’s direction.
But Donald Trump said he doesn’t see a reason for Congress to impeach him. He added that if they do that, the stock market would crash and Americans would be poorer.
Speaking during an interview with Fox News broadcast on Thursday, Trump said: “I don’t know how you can impeach somebody who’s done a great job.”
He added: “I’ll tell you what, if I ever got impeached, I think the market would crash. I think everybody would be very poor. Because without this thinking you would see numbers that you wouldn’t believe, in reverse.”
