Trump has discussed the prospect of being impeached before, but his comments come after a whirlwind week raised fresh questions about his fitness for office and control over his administration.
“You didn’t go out to vote — that’s the only way it could happen,” Trump said during a rally in Billings.
“I’ll be the only President in history they’ll say: ‘What a job he’s done! By the way, we’re impeaching him,'” Trump said.
“This election, you aren’t just voting for a candidate, you are voting for which party controls Congress,” the President said. “Very important thing. Very important thing.”
