President Donald Trump has publicly signaled that he is unfazed by the fact that the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives is looking to impeach him, dismissing the opposition party’s actions as yet another meaningless, partisan witch hunt.
Privately, however, the president has behaved differently. According to a new report from Axios, Trump worries that impeachment could ruin his legacy.
In a phone call with House Republicans on Friday, Trump told his allies that impeachment is a “bad thing to have on your resume.”
After raising his concerns, the commander-in-chief said that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy would benefit from him being impeached.
“But it’s going to make Kevin speaker,” he said.

Some have speculated that Trump is actually looking forward to impeachment, because he believes it could help him moving forward.
