Fox News host Neil Cavuto delivers a stern rebuke to Trump after wild week

By David Choi-BusinessInsider

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.
