Trump on Impeachment: "This Is A Happy Period"

|

President Trump said despite impeachment this is a "happy period" in a 90-minute speech Thursday night at a campaign rally in Des Moines. Trump called the status of the Senate trial "impeachment lite" and accused Democrats of trying to nullify the results of the 2016 presidential election.

"We're having probably the best years that we've ever had in our country, and I just got impeached! Can you believe these people? I got impeached. They impeached Trump," the president said to audience reaction.

"They want to nullify your ballots, poison our democracy and overthrow the entire system of government," Trump said. "That’s not happening, I can tell you that. Washington Democrats have spent the last three years trying to overturn the last election."

"We will make sure they face another crushing defeat in 2020," he said. "November 3rd, mark it off."

"Why am I not worried? I should be worried," Trump said.

"They say with Johnson, it was a long time ago, none of us remember, but they say it was a very dark period," the president said. "This is a happy period for us. Really."

"This is a happy period," he added.

Trump wraps up his speech: "We are going to keep on working, we are going to keep on fighting and we are going to keep on winning, winning, winning... America is thriving like never before, and ladies and gentlemen, and especially the great ladies and gentlemen of Iowa, the best is yet to come, because together we will make America wealthy again. We will make America strong again. We will make America proud again. We will make America safe again. And we will make America Great again. Thank you, Iowa!"

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: While we're proudly creating jobs and killing terrorists, Congressional Democrats are consumed with partisan rage and obsessed with a deranged witchhunt hoax.

We're having probably the best years that we've ever had in our country, and I just got impeached! Can you believe these people? I got impeached. They impeached Trump. The best trade deals, the strongest military. I took care of the vets. We got choice. We got accountability for the vets. Accountability! We got all these things and they impeach your president. No, that's not going to work. Watch. Just watch.

They want to nullify your ballots, poison our democracy and overthrow the entire system of government. That’s not happening, I can tell you that. Washington Democrats have spent the last three years trying to overturn the last election. Why am I not worried? I should be worried. Remember Nixon? It was like a dark period. It was a very dark period. It was like, oh, if you think about it. And with Clinton, it was not good. They say with Johnson, it was a long time ago, none of us remember, but they say it was a very dark period. This is a happy period for us. Really.

[APPLAUSE]

This is a happy period.

[AUDIENCE CHEERS "USA, USA, USA!"]

It's a happy period because we call this "impeachment lite." This is light. Crazy Schiff. Shifty Schiff. He's a sick puppy. He's a sick puppy.

[AUDIENCE BOOS]

But you know what? Today, you saw it, I hit my highest poll numbers since I got elected.

[AUDIENCE CHEERS]

Because the American people, and frankly people all over the world, know it's a hoax. They understand it. They know it's a hoax. We have a great party, the Republican party. They know what's going on. They know what's going on. They are going to treat us very fairly. But the Democrats are trying to overturn the last election. We will make sure that they face another crushing defeat in 2020. November 3rd. November 3rd, mark it off.
