'Energized my base': Trump says impeachment will backfire on Democrats

President Trump called Democratic efforts to impeach him a "disgrace," saying the insult had only revved up his core supporters and would help him win reelection in 2020.
"It’s energized my base like I’ve never seen before,” Trump said on Thursday during an 80-minute interview with Washington Examiner reporters and editors just hours after the House voted to formalize impeachment proceedings.
The president said the impeachment proceedings are a personal insult that would unfairly mark his administration, and he insisted voters would agree with him.
"I think [impeachment is] a very dirty word, it’s a word that I can’t believe that the do-nothing Democrats are trying to pin on me, and it’s a disgrace. And I think it’s going to backfire on them,” he said from behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office, with a small stack of press clippings in front of him and a glass of diet soda on ice to his right.
“I did nothing wrong, and for them to do this is a disgrace," he said. "To me, the word impeachment’s a very ugly word."
Trump claimed the Democrat-driven process is being rejected in key battleground states and that he was continuing to poll well nationally.
