Former Ohio Democratic Congressman Dennis Kucinich cautioned his party against impeaching President Donald Trump Wednesday on Fox News, and said they should shift focus to job creation and improving the country’s economic conditions.
“Instead of focusing on replacing President Trump and bringing in a President Pence, we ought to be focusing on the things that attract people to the Democratic party: Jobs, wages, health care, education, retirement security,” Kucinich said during an interview on “America’s Newsroom.”
“That will get people excited about voting Democrat instead of focusing on … this process of impeachment which could be quite problematic legislatively,” he added.
Kucinich said it would be a mistake for Democrats to continue with the same narrative that cost them the 2016 presidential election, because it wouldn’t win back Democratic defectors who voted for Trump.
“We have to be careful that we’re not trying to recreate the 2016 election,” he said. “We want to bring Democrats back who may have voted for Donald Trump.”
Polls have shown up to three-quarters of Democrats support impeaching Trump, despite any agreement as to what the specific charges would be, according to Politico.
