US President Donald Trump has said he has done nothing for which he can be impeached, and called himself the most successful president during the first two years in history.

In a Washington Post interview published on Monday, US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that she's against impeaching President Trump "unless there's something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan.” Pelosi argued that Trump is “just not worth it."

Trump said on Wednesday that he appreciates Pelosi's comments, but added that he "did nothing wrong."

"I greatly appreciate Nancy Pelosi’s statement against impeachment, but everyone must remember the minor fact that I never did anything wrong, the Economy and Unemployment are the best ever, Military and Vets are great — and many other successes!" Trump tweeted.

"How do you impeach a man who is considered by many to be the President with the most successful first two years in history, especially when he has done nothing wrong and impeachment is for 'high crimes and misdemeanors'?" he added.

Pelosi said she believes Trump is not fit to serve as president, but still opposes impeachment at the moment.

"Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country. And he’s just not worth it," Pelosi told the Post.

Although Pelosi's latest comments suggest that she will not support impeaching Trump, in the past she has said that the information obtained from special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating allegations that Trump's campaign team colluded with Russia to sway the 2016 election in his favor, could begin the impeachment process.

Democrats have been divided on the impeachment issue since they retook control of the House in January.

However, the Senate, which is controlled by the Republicans at least until the 2020 presidential election, would need to support the move.

Trump, who according to sources close to the White House saw impeachment as a “real possibility” when Democrats take over the House, warned that the people of America would revolt if he were impeached.
