Trump Just Said He Refuses to Resign Like Nixon Did, ‘I Don’t Leave!’
During an event honoring the winner of the Indy 500 at the White House Monday, Donald Trump reacted to this afternoon’s House testimony from former Nixon White House counsel John Dean.
The president made some remarks on the helicopter crash in New York before being asked about Dean’s testimony––in which the key Watergate figure said there are clear parallels between the “Watergate roadmap” and the Mueller report.
“John Dean’s been a loser for many years,” Trump said. “I’ve been watching him on one of the networks that is not exactly Trump-oriented, and I guess they paid him a lot of money over the years. Now, John’s been a loser for a long time. We know that. I think he was disbarred and he went to prison. Other than that, he’s doing a great job.”
Trump was also dismissive when asked about the idea of an impeachment inquiry, and said, “When you look at past impeachments, whether it was President Clinton, or I guess President Nixon never got there — he left. I don’t leave. Big difference.”
Trump says he won't resign, like Nixon —
"When you look at past impeachments, whether it was President Clinton, or I guess President Nixon never got there — he left. I don't leave. Big difference."
