Months of impeachment proceedings have not fazed the president and he continues to be in good spirits, he told a rally in Michigan on Dec. 18.
Donald Trump confirmed he is becoming less concerned about the House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry.
“It does not really feel like we are being impeached,” he shared with supporters who gathered to hear him speak at Battle Creek, 121 miles east of Detroit.
The president could hardly believe he is also becoming used to his “impeachment life.”
“I don’t know about you but I am having a good time, it is crazy,” he said according to The Associated Press. “I’m not worried. I’m not worried.”
Trump made the remarks as several Republican Party members expressed their view that the impeachment investigation will not only fail to remove the president but also unwittingly bring a major voter backlash against the “do-nothing Democrats” at the 2020 general election.
“[It is becoming] a suicide march,” he said. “Crazy Nancy Pelosi’s House Democrats have branded themselves with an eternal mark of shame. It is a disgrace.”
The remarks came as the House approved the president’s impeachment to proceed to a trial in the Senate, on the so-called charges of abusing his power by allegedly asking the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to investigate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter, and also obstruction of Congress for allegedly stonewalling investigations.
However, The Associated Press speculates there is little chance Trump will actually be removed from the Oval Office because he is fully supported by the Republican-controlled Senate.
“Every single Republican voted for us [in the House],” he said after being informed of the outcome of the impeachment vote. “Whoa. Wow, wow … and three Democrats voted for us.”
If the impeachment fails, the Democrats have threatened to repeatedly try to impeach Trump, who slammed the effort as “illegal” and a clear example of that political party’s “deep hatred and disdain” for voters who have more important priorities than just removing the president from office.
“After three years of sinister witch hunts, hoaxes, scams, tonight the House Democrats are trying to nullify the ballots of tens of millions of patriotic Americans,” Trump said. “ [The Democrats are] interfering in America’s elections [and] … subverting American democracy.”
The president earlier used social media to express that he maintains his innocence.
“Can you believe that I will be impeached today by the radical left, do nothing Democrats and I did nothing wrong,” he said on Twitter. “This should never happen to a president again. Say a prayer!”
Father Frank Pavone responded to this request for a divine intervention and encouraged others to help pray to give Trump strength to make it through this difficult time.
“Let’s storm heaven against the evil that surrounds him,” he said on Twitter. “I pray he will have the courage to continue to fight for the lives of the unborn.”
Trump’s re-election campaign enjoyed a jump in donations, contributions, and volunteers during the impeachment inquiry and his campaign team hopes to raise an extra $2 million ahead of the election.
