President Donald Trump has reportedly woken up to the possibility of being ousted from office by angry Democrats.
According to Business Insider, he thinks he can play the situation towards a big reelection in 2020.
Axios reported on Wednesday, Trump would try to play the victim card
and paint Democrats as having unfairly attacked him over as-of-yet unproven collusion and obstruction of justice accusations.
A source familiar with Trump's thinking on the upcoming midterms told Axios,
"He has repeated to folks that, if the Democrats impeach him, it would be a victory, politically,
because it would be a complete overreach and he could exploit it and run against it in 2020."
Trump previously had openly questioned whether the 2018 midterm elections even mattered.
Republicans stand to lose control of Congress in the upcoming midterms.
