US President Donald Trump has said he believes the economy would tank if he were to be impeached.

Mr Trump was asked in an interview with Fox & Friends if he believes Democrats will launch impeachment proceedings if they win the House this autumn, as many suspect.

He said: “If I ever got impeached, I think the market would crash. I think everybody would be very poor.”
