President Donald Trump appeared to acknowledge the toll impeachment is taking on his mental state during a Friday evening campaign rally in Tupelo, Mississippi.

The president warned that impeachment would cause the stock market to "crash like you have never seen a crash before."

"I'd like to speak well, but the [Democratic Party] leadership, they have no clue," Trump told the crowd of supporters.

"They're just very vicious people," he complained.

"Actually, they're sort of mentally violent people," Trump said.
