A man known as the Prediction Professor, who has accurately called every U.S. presidential election since 1984 including Donald Trump’s shocking 2016 win, now says the POTUS-elect will be impeached.
"My prediction is, based on my gut, that there's a very good chance that Donald Trump could face impeachment," the professor, Allan Lichtman, said during an appearance on CNN's Erin Burnett OutFront on Tuesday, November 15.
Lichtman, who teaches at American University in Washington, predicts that the controversial businessman, who is “fast and loose with the law,” will do something to get himself into trouble once he’s settled in the Oval Office.
"The Republicans are nervous about Donald Trump," Lichtman explained. "He is a loose cannon. Nobody knows what he really believes or really where he stands. He can't be controlled. The Republicans would vastly prefer to have [Vice President] Mike Pence, an absolutely predictable down-the-pipe conservative Republican."
Lichtman, according to CNN, usually uses a set of 13 true or false statements to determine which party will win the presidential election, but this year, he said he simply went with his “instinct” in choosing Trump.
The former Apprentice host stunned the world after he beat Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, who was predicted to take office following the most divisive election ever. The Republican beat out the former Secretary of State after claiming Florida, Ohio and North Carolina, denying Clinton a path to victory.
Trump, 70, is the first person to be elected POTUS without prior military or government experience. He’s also the oldest candidate to be elected to the White House.
