Trump: Impeach me if you want to see a stock market crash

President Trump on Saturday warned that if he’s impeached, the country could face an economic crisis.

“The Economy is one of the best in our history, with unemployment at a 50 year low, and the Stock Market ready to again break a record (set by us many times) – & all you heard yesterday, based on a phony story, was Impeachment. You want to see a Stock Market Crash, Impeach Trump!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

The impeachment chatter was recently fueled following a since disputed BuzzFeed report alleging that Trump directed his former attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about efforts to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.

Trump has addressed impeachment in other tweets as well.

Years ago, he did, however, call for former President Obama’s impeachment.

“Are you allowed to impeach a president for gross incompetence?” Trump wrote in 2014.
