The US president is starting to sound uncharacteristically defensive in the aftermath of the Manafort and Cohen turmoil.
Overnight, at 1am, a sleepless President Trump blasted out one of his signature
ut in a more tangible threat – one which some said is a classic from an Arab dictator playbook – President Trump said that if he ever got impeached, the stock market would crash and “everybody would be very poor.”
In an interview with Fox and Friends’ Ainsley Earhardt that aired on Thursday, Trump was asked if he thought Democrats would move to file articles of impeachment should they take over control of the House and Senate come November. The president argued that he’s done a great job in office, despite the critical coverage in connection with the Cohen case and other controversies.
“If I ever got impeached, I think the market would crash, I think everybody would be very poor. Because without this thinking [points to head] you would see, you would see numbers that you wouldn’t believe in reverse.”
