US President Donald Trump has warned that the people of America would revolt if he were impeached.
“It’s hard to impeach somebody who hasn’t done anything wrong and who’s created the greatest economy in the history of our country,” Trump said during an interview with Reuters in the Oval Office of the White House on Tuesday.
“I’m not concerned, no,” he said when asked about his potential impeachment. “I think that the people would revolt if that happened.”
Despite publicly dismissing as a “hoax” the ongoing probe into his alleged “collusion” with Russia, Trump is worried that new breakthroughs in a related case regarding campaign finance violations could bring him down.
Citing unnamed sources in the White House, CNN reported Monday Trump sees impeachment as a “real possibility” when Democrats take over the House of Representatives in a month, amid the ongoing probe into the president’s ties with Russia.
