The "only way" Democrats could possibly win in 2020 is to "bring out the artificial way of impeachment," President Donald Trump told CBS News’ Face the Nation in an exclusive interview over the weekend.
"You can't impeach somebody for doing the best job of any president in the history of our country for the first two years," Trump said in defending himself.
"If you look at what they're running on, they can't win," the president said of the Democrats, claiming that they "want to take our wealth and give it away" with higher taxes.
Trump also called the suggestion of impeachment proceedings a "political" call and instead criticized Democrats for their stance on abortion.
"I look at these folks with the horrible situation right now on abortion, where they're saying late term - they're not even talking about late term,” the president said. “They're talking about the baby is born and they can kill this child, this innocent child. What they're doing on abortion, what they're doing on high taxes, what they're doing at the border, what they're doing in so many different ways."
Trump’s remarks come after Democratic Virginia Governor Ralph Northam made controversial comments on late-term abortion procedures while talking about a new bill in the state legislature that could loosen restrictions on abortions during the third trimester.
At least five Democrats have officially entered the presidential race to challenge Trump in the 2020 election and three others have formed exploratory committees to consider their options.
