Donald Trump says ‘I have done nothing wrong’ as he boasts about another stock market record high and mocks Democrats who want to impeach ‘your all time favorite president’
- President Trump used Twitter Tuesday to tout the stock market and his polls, while pushing back on impeachment in the House of Representatives
- Trump referred to himself as ‘your all time favorite president’ and said his hands were clean
- The House Rules Committee meets Tuesday to decide what a floor debate and vote on impeachment will look like Wednesday
President Trump touted stock market gains as he shamed Democrats for trying to impeach him, which could happen as early as tomorrow.
‘The Stock Market hit another Record High yesterday, number 133 in less than three years as your all time favorite President,’ Trump began. ‘And the Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrats want to impeach me.’
Trump, who is being impeached over a scheme to pressure the Ukrainian president into announcing an investigation into his political rival Joe Biden, again protested that his hands are clean.

The president used Twitter Tuesday morning to defend himself, as the House Rules Committee is scheduled to debate impeachment today
‘I have done nothing wrong,’ he wrote Tuesday morning. ‘Actually, they have!’ directing his assault at the Democrats.
On Tuesday the House Rules Committee will meet to set the rules for the impeachment debate, expected to start Wednesday on the House floor.
Depending on what the 13 members of the Rules Committee come up with, the full House impeachment vote could come as early as tomorrow.
Then impeachment will head to the Senate, where the Republican-controlled body is expected to let Trump off the hook. Two-thirds of the Senate would have to vote in the affirmative to oust Trump.
President Trump also pointed to a new USAToday poll that showed him beating the top Democratic challengers in head-to-head matches
The president has remained combative and overly chatty on Twitter.
Besides the stock market, Trump touted his poll numbers on Wednesday morning.
A new USAToday poll found that even with impeachment looming, Trump beats his 2020 Democratic rivals in match-ups across the board.
‘The new USA Today Poll, just out, has me leading all of the Democrat contenders,’ Trump wrote. ‘That’s hard to believe since the Fake News & 3 year Scams and Witch Hunts, as phony as they are, just never seem to end.’
‘The American people are smart. They see the great economy, & everything else!’ Trump added.
The president also welcomed Rep. Jeff Van Drew to the Republican Party.
Van Drew opposed impeachment and said he was switching parties, leading to an exodus of staff from his Congressional office earlier this week.
‘Congressman Jeff Van Drew is very popular in our great and very united Republican Party. It was a tribute to him that he was able to win his heavily Republican district as a Democrat,’ Trump said Tuesday. ‘People like that are not easily replaceable!’
