President Trump jokingly dismissed the Democrat push for impeachment by saying he could stay in office for another 16 years. While speaking in central Florida Thursday, the president said Democrats have started the inquiry because they can’t win next year’s elections fairly.
“Anyway, but if you wanna drive them (Democrats) crazy, just say 8 more years or 12 more years…16 would do it good,” joked President Trump.
He went on to stress that the Democrat Party is controlled by far-left “maniacs,” whose policies could “destroy America.”
“One of these people gets in — your 401Ks are going to hell, the stock market is going to hell,” warned the president. “Frankly I think, and I hate to say it, the country’s going to go to hell…they’re consumed by rage and radicalism and insatiable lust for power.”
President Trump said another four years of his administration would boost economic growth and prosperity, and improve America’s standing in international affairs.
