At a media availability with Italian President Sergio Mattarella, U.S. President Trump said Democrats know they are going to lose the 2020 presidential election so they are trying to impeach him.
REPORTER: Mr. President, (INAUDIBLE) seeing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi today. How do you anticipate that going?
TRUMP: I say this--I think that she's done this country a tremendous disservice. She's created a phony witch hunt another one. First one failed. They're all failing. This one is just absolutely crazy. All you have to do is read the transcript of the call. Read the transcript. This is a open and shut simple case. They're desperate because they know they are going to lose the election. They are desperate to do something because they know they are going to lose the election. This administration has created the strongest economy in the history of our country. We have the greatest stock market. We had over 100 times we broke the record for stock market.
People--if you look at people's stocks--their 401ks, if you look at anything you want to look at they are far better off now that they probably ever have been in this country--record stock markets. And don't forget, stock market is not just rich people--it's all people. Because all people own in the stock markets--New York Stock Exchange, all of them. They're at record highs. Nobody's ever done more than we've done.
So, they're playing games. They figure they can't win the election so maybe we can find some ground--we will get somebody that Trump never met and maybe they will say something bad about Trump. And if they do really bad maybe it can stick a little bit--I don't think it's going to work. They have treated the Republican party with great disrespect.
