President Trump spoke to a group of supporters Thursday night, attempting to motivate them to get out and vote in the midterm elections by stating that if he gets impeached it would be their “fault because you didn’t go out and vote.”
The statement was made by the president during a rally held in Billings, Montana in support of Republican Matt Rosendale who is running for a U.S. Senate seat which is currently being held by a Democrat.
“They like to use the ‘impeach’ word, ‘impeach Trump!’” he told the crowd before invoking the name of Democratic U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters (Calif.), who has repeatedly called for the president’s impeachment.Advertisement - story continues below
“But I say, ‘How do you impeach somebody that’s doing a great job, that hasn’t done anything wrong?’” Trump asked. “Our economy is good. How do you do it? How do you do it?”
“It is a hell of a place in Washington,” Trump said.Trending:
He went on to mock impeachment as the automatic solution every time a president comes into office and the power in Congress rests with the opposite political party, warning that such an approach would turn America “into a Third-World country.”
“But we’ll worry about that if it ever happens,” Trump said. “But if it does happen, it’s your fault because you didn’t go out to vote.”

Talk of impeaching the president hasn’t been a taboo subject during Trump’s short time in office, but it seems that here lately it’s gaining fresh traction thanks to that anonymous NYT op-ed from a supposed senior official within the administration, which stated that the 25th amendment can be invoked to oust Trump.
At the end of the day though, Trump is right. If we lose both houses of Congress it could be disastrous for his administration, thus it is more critical than ever if we want the continued success and improvement of our economic system, we need more time with Trump.
Let’s hope that happens and folks get out and vote conservative come November.
