President Donald Trump has said he cannot be impeached because he is too successful.

Pushing back against some Democrats’ calls to charge the president with misconduct and make him leave the White House, Trump said he was untouchable.

His comments came as one new Congresswoman even told a rally in Michigan on Thursday to ‘impeach the motherf*****‘.

But Trump hit back saying the Democrats wanted impeachment because they know they cannot win the White House in 2020.

‘How do you impeach a president who has won perhaps the greatest election of all time, done nothing wrong?’ he wrote in a tweet.

And he added he was responsible for the ‘most successful two years of any president’, in a tweet Mr Trump tweeted.

He also claimed to be ‘the most popular Republican in party history’.

His comments came amid growing momentum among some Democrats to go for impeachment as Congress began again.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been cautious about whether her new Democratic majority would impeach Mr Trump, but at least two of her members are ready to move forward.

Representatives Brad Sherman and Al Green introduced articles of impeachment against Mr Trump on Thursday, the first day of the new Congress.

The pair pushed to impeach the president in 2017 and 2018 but the House blocked those resolutions twice, with the help of Democrats who said the effort was premature.

Ms Pelosi has not ruled out impeachment but has called it a ‘divisive activity’ that needs support from both parties.

She and House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerrold Nadler have said they want to wait for the outcome of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election and contacts with the Trump campaign before acting.

Mr Trump has denied that his campaign colluded with Moscow.

Despite that, opponents he has a case to answer and point to the fate of some of his closest advisors.

His former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, was accused of accepting millions of dollars in cash for representing Russian interests in Ukraine and US.

He was found guilty of eight counts of financial fraud and tax evasion crimes last year.

There has been speculation that Manafort could receive a Presidential pardon.
