President Trump warned his supporters on Thursday that the United States would turn into a “third-world country” if Democrats tried to impeach him should they regain control of the House, because he has not done “anything wrong.”
“You’ll have a country that’s going to turn into a third-world country because if the opposite party becomes president, every time before it even starts, before you even found out whether or not he or she is going to do a great job, they’ll say, ‘We want to impeach him,'” Trump said at a campaign rally in Montana on Thursday.
“If that happened, every time a Republican or a Democrat – opposite – got elected president. Let’s say a Democrat gets elected … and let’s say we have a Republican House. We will impeach that Democrat, right?” Trump warned.
Trump then told the crowd that his impeachment would be their “fault” if they didn’t go out and vote during November’s midterm elections.
During an August interview with “Fox and Friends” host Ainsley Earhardt, Trump warned that the stock market would crash if he were forced out of office.
“I think everybody would be very poor,” he said, before pointing to his head. “Because without this thinking, you would see numbers that you wouldn’t believe.”
A top economic official at Barclay’s said on Wednesday that Trump’s removal from office would not endanger America’s economy as the president has claimed.
“We doubt that capital markets would collapse if President Trump’s administration was endangered either electorally or indeed legally,” William Hobbs wrote.
“The forward momentum of the world economy, and therefore its capital markets, has little to do with the actions of the White House, past, present or future in our opinion,” he added.
