Trump Says ‘Economy Will Crash’ If ‘Clowns’ Democrats Win

President Donald Trump was up early on Wednesday, attacking Democratic presidential candidates as “clowns” and declaring that the economy “would crash” if any of them became president. He also bragged that none of the contenders could defeat him in the 2020 general election and that House Democrats are trying to “illegally” impeach him as a result.

“You would think there is NO WAY that any of the Democrat Candidates that we witnessed last night could possibly become President of the United States. Now you see why they have no choice but to push a totally illegal & absurd Impeachment of one of the most successful Presidents!” Trump tweeted.

“Our record Economy would CRASH, just like in 1929, if any of those clowns became President!” he added in a second tweet.

Trump’s tweets marked his first reaction to the fourth Democratic presidential debate Tuesday night, during which many of the candidates trained their attacks on Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) who has been rising in the polls.

Trump has lashed out at House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, claiming his political opponents are seeking to overturn the results of the 2016 presidential election. Trump has taken aim Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and other top congressional Democrats in addition to his potential 2020 opponents during official White House events, campaign rallies and on Twitter.

Meanwhile, some recent polls have shown Warren or former Vice President Joe Biden defeating Trump in hypothetical general election matchups.

House Democrats last month launched an impeachment inquiry focused on Trump’s contacts with Ukraine after it was revealed that he asked the nation’s leader to investigation Biden and his son. An anonymous intelligence community whistleblower filed a complaint alleging Trump was using his official office to solicit foreign interference in the 2020 election.

Trump has maintained he did nothing wrong on the call, saying it was focused on fighting “corruption” and not politics. No evidence of criminal wrongdoing related to the Bidens has emerged.

The president has also accused Democrats of a “witch hunt” – using a moniker he often reserved to describe special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation— and has refused to cooperate with the impeachment inquiry.

Vice President Mike Pence, the Pentagon and Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani — a key person of interest in the impeachment inquiry — all refused to comply with subpoenas for documents in connection with the impeachment inquiry on Tuesday.
