Fox News commentator Neil Cavuto criticized President Donald
Trump’s recent remarks on impeachment and the economy, and
chastised him over his rhetoric of late.

During an interview with “Fox and Friends” co-host Ainsley
Earhardt on Wednesday, Trump suggested that America’s economy
would take a catastrophic hit if he were to be impeached.

“If I ever got impeached, I think the market would crash,” Trump
said. “I think everybody would be very poor. Because without this
thinking you would see — you would see numbers that you wouldn’t
believe in reverse.”

“I don’t know how you can impeach somebody who’s done a great
job,” Trump said.

Cavuto challenged Trump’s assertions.

“That is quite a threat, and it might even happen,” Cavuto said.

“All I’m saying is you don’t prevent a constitutional crisis by
threatening a financial one,” Cavuto added. “But Mr. President,
you guarantee both when your very actions and words create that
crisis, or make people think that you’re hiding one.”

Cavuto listed several scandals that have plagued the White House,
several of which came to head this week. Michael Cohen, Trump’s
longtime personal attorney signed on to a plea deal in which he
implicated Trump in a federal crime. And Paul Manafort, his
former campaign chairman, was convicted on multiple counts of tax
and bank fraud.

Cavuto hammered Trump on his and his administration’s past claims
about a $130,000 payment Cohen made to the porn star Stormy
Daniels.

“Like when you say that you knew nothing about payments to a
stripper and a former Playboy model until you did,” Cavuto said,
“then explained your former lawyer Michael Cohen made those
decisions until we heard on tape that you did.”

“But you see, that is the problem here,” Cavuto said. “We can’t
move on. Lots of stuff like that just keeps popping up here.
Getting added here, getting re-explained here.”

Cavuto suggested that scandals surrounding Trump’s presidency are
overshadowing any glimmer of good news. On Tuesday, for example,
the S&P 500 hit record highs for the first
time since January, despite ongoing trade wars between the US and
other countries, and higher interest rates.

“None of these make the market any less impressive,” Cavuto said,
referring to Trump’s statements. “Maybe just the guy overseeing
it all. Mr. President, you’re that guy.”

“You’re right to be frustrated, but you are part of what’s
frustrating,” Cavuto added. “It’s not about stepping on your
message, it’s about constantly changing it.”

“I know you’ll call this fake, but the implications of what
you’re doing, Mr. President, are very real,” Cavuto said. “You
are so darned focused on promoting a financial boom, that you’ve
failed to see that you are the one creating this moral bust. And
we could all be the poorer for it.”
