United State of America’s President Donald Trump in his recent interview that was broadcasted yesterday predicted that the stock market would crash and “everybody would be very poor” if he gets impeached by the U.S. House of Representatives next year.
During an interview on “Fox & Friends” by host Ainsley Earhardt, noted that the Democrats are vying to take control of the House in the November elections and asked Trump the prospect. He said:
“You know, I guess it says something like ‘high crimes’ and all. . . . I don’t know how you can impeach somebody who’s done a great job.
“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.”
He went on to tout the performance of the U.S. economy under his stewardship and suggest it would have fared far worse if Democrat Hillary Clinton had been elected in 2016.
Under the U.S. Constitution, presidents may be removed for “treason, bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”
Talk of possible impeachment of Trump has accelerated this week with the guilty plea of Trump’s former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, in federal court in Manhattan, and the conviction of Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, in federal court in Alexandria, Va.
