During a meeting with Iraqi President Barham Salih at the United Nations General Assembly, President Donald Trump told reporters that Democrats' bringing forth impeachment proceedings would be a good thing for him, the Daily Caller reported. 

“If she [Speaker Nancy Pelosi] does that, they all say that’s a positive for me from the election. You could also say, who needs it? It’s bad for the country,” Trump told reporters.

“How can you do this and you haven’t even seen the phone call?” Trump asked. "The good news is the voters get it. This is why they say it’s good for the election, but you know what? It’s bad for the country. What she’s doing is very bad.”

Trump took to Twitter late in the day to let Americans know he authorized the release of the complete transcript of his conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

After Speaker Nancy Pelosi made her announcement saying the House of Representatives is beginning formal impeachment proceedings, Trump took to Twitter to comment on the situation.
