Fox News host Neil Cavuto criticized President Donald Trump on Thursday afternoon for saying that the economy would take a massive hit if he were to be impeached. “All I am saying,” he said, “is you don’t prevent a constitutional crisis by threatening a financial one
Cavuto’s monologue was in response the president’s comments in an interview with Fox News’ Ainsley Earhardt that aired Thursday morning. He said that should Democrats impeach him it would cause the market to crash. (RELATED: Trump Predicts Market Crash If He’s Impeached)
“The longest bull market in history just could be history. If, if, Democrats dare to make that president history. What the president is saying is, ‘we are all making gravy, so why stop the train?’ Well I don’t know,” Cavuto said. “Maybe because the train could be resting on shaky tracks. Or the conductor of that train has said and done some shaky things or at least said some inconsistent things. Look good times should never be used to ignore bad things.”
He continued, “All I’m saying is you don’t prevent a constitutional crisis by threatening a financial one. Mr. President, you guarantee both when your very actions and words create that crisis, or make people think — think — that you’re hiding one.”
“Some are big and worrisome, other are consistent and tiresome. Like when you argue that Ohio governor John Kasich was unpopular, when he wasn’t. Or U.S. Steel was building six new steel mills when they weren’t. Or said your poll numbers were higher than when Abraham Lincoln was president even though we didn’t have polls when Lincoln was president,” Cavuto added.
