Trump Claims He’s The ‘Most Popular Republican In History’ And Cannot Be Impeached

President Trump on Friday fired back at impeachment talk among some Democrats, saying they couldn’t impeach “the most popular Republican in party history.”

“How do you impeach a president who has won perhaps the greatest election of all time, done nothing wrong (no Collusion with Russia, it was the Dems that Colluded), had the most successful first two years of any president, and is the most popular Republican in party history 93%?” Trump tweeted.

This isn’t the first time Trump has pushed back on impeachment talk; in August he suggested his job performance will insulate him.

“I don’t think they can impeach somebody that’s doing a great job,” Trump said at the time. “You look at the economy, you look at jobs, you look at foreign, what’s going on with other countries. You look at trade deals. I’m doing a great job.”

Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) on Thursday introduced articles of impeachment against Trump.

“There is no reason it shouldn’t be before the Congress,” Sherman told the Los Angeles Times. “Every day, Donald Trump shows that leaving the White House would be good for our country.”

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told USA Today on Thursday that she does not intend to seek grounds for impeachment unless it’s “clearly bipartisan.”

“The facts will indicate a path and I don’t think we should impeach a president for any political reason, but I don’t think we can ignore any behavior that requires attention and that was all based on the facts,” Pelosi said.

Here’s Trump’s reaction:

As expected, Twitter issued a blistering response. Here are some of the highlights:
