During his 2 day Nato Summit in London, President Trump predicted Democrat efforts to impeach him would backfire.
Trump argued impeachment has united the Republican party and “it’s really a great thing in some ways.”
While Democrats can impeach President Trump with their House Majority by simply a party line vote, to actually remove Trump would require every Democrat and Independent to vote for conviction, along with 20 Republican Senators.
Very few analysts believe in the current partisan environment that recruiting 20 Republican Senators to vote for Trump removal is an achievable feat for Democrats.
A recent poll found the majority of Republicans find Trump to be a better President that Abraham Lincoln.
“They’re getting killed in their own districts,” Trump said Monday morning as he left the White House for a two-day NATO summit in London. “I think it’s going to be a tremendous boon for Republicans. Republicans have never, ever been so committed as they are right now, and so united. It’s really a great thing in some ways.”
The comment shows anew how the president views most matters through a prism related to his reelection chances. But his assessment of the inquiry was not all upbeat.
“But in other ways, it’s a disgrace,” a black umbrella-toting president said on another rainy day in Washington. “It’s a disgrace to our country.”
Heading to Europe to represent our Country and fight hard for the American People while the Do Nothing Democrats purposely scheduled an Impeachment Hoax hearing on the same date as NATO. Not nice! pic.twitter.com/LCXYhoOWF6
