President Trump shot back at Democrat calls for impeachment, citing his successful record as President as a counterpoint. The Washington Examiner reports:
President Trump and his top spokeswoman on Friday dismissed the idea that House Democrats will be able to impeach him, and said he’s been too successful for that to happen.
“How do you impeach a president who has won perhaps the greatest election of all time, done nothing wrong (no Collusion with Russia, it was the Dems that Colluded), had the most successful first two years of any president, and is the most popular Republican in party history 93%?” Trump asked on Twitter.
Trump tweeted just moments after White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was asked to respond to freshman House Democrat Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., who said in a video “we’re gonna go in and impeach the motherf–ker.”
Sanders ignored the vulgarity of the comment, and instead said Democrats would have a hard time impeaching a president who has done so much.
With Democrats only holding a relatively slim majority in the House, impeachment would be a highly difficult process and could backfire on Democrats.
