  • President Donald Trump has responded to growing whispers that he could be impeached if Democrats retake the House in the November midterms.
  • In a Wednesday interview with Fox News, he said impeachment would bring a market crash.
  • Trump dismissed his former lawyer Michael Cohen's implicating him in federal crimes.
  • He instead insisted he was doing a great job.

President Donald Trump responded Wednesday to growing whispers that he could be impeached if Democrats retake the House in the November midterm elections.

Asked on Fox News by Ainsley Earhardt whether he thought Democrats would try to impeach him if they won back power in the legislature, Trump was incredulous and predicted that impeachment would result in a market crash.

"I guess it says something like high crimes and all," Trump said, referring to Article II, Section 4, of the US Constitution, which states that the president "shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other High Crimes and Misdemeanors."

"I don't know how you can impeach somebody who's done a great job," Trump said.

But Trump recently found himself implicated in federal crimes by his former lawyer Michael Cohen, who pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations he said Trump directed him to carry out.

"If I ever got impeached, I think the market would crash," Trump said. "I think everybody would be very poor.

"Because without this thinking," he continued, pointing to his head, "you would see, you would see numbers that you wouldn't believe in reverse."

Trump then touted his achievements in office, which he said included jacking up US gross-domestic-product growth to 4.1% in the most recent quarter. Trump said his relaxation of regulations and new tax law had added trillions of dollars and thousands of jobs to the economy.

"Had Hillary and the Democrats gotten in, had she been president, you would have had negative growth," Trump said.

While some economists and commentators have argued Trump is simply reaping the fruits of the decadelong economic upswing, others say the president's tax and regulatory policies produced a meaningful boost to the economy beyond what otherwise would have happened.

At the same time, however, Trump has also ignited a multifront trade conflict that in some cases has involved tit-for-tat tariffs, or taxes on imports, between the US and its biggest trading partners.

Trump's approval ratings have hovered around the low 40s for the past six months. Recent polling suggests Democrats are in a suitable position to take back the House, an outcome that Trump allies such as his former chief strategist, Steve Bannon, have told Republican voters could see the president get booted.
