President Trump puts impeachment behind him


Sets sites on celebrating positive economic news - NBC News' Alice Barr reports

WASHINGTON, D.C. (KYMA, KECY/NBC News) - President Donald Trump, riding the wave of a stronger-than expected jobs report, traveled to North Carolina Friday for an economic summit.

With impeachment in his rear-view mirror, there are indications he's looking forward to settling the score with his accusers.

"Our economy is now the envy of the entire world."

It was clear the President was riding a wave of good news in North Carolina.

"We're fighting for great jobs - great education - safe homes and a limitless future."

In addition to the new jobs report, a federal lawsuit over Trump's business dealings was dismissed.

Democratic lawmakers had accused the President of violating the Constitution by profiting off foreign governments at his Washington hotel, a favorite with diplomats.

A federal court dismissed the suit on technical grounds - but the President declared a sweeping victory.

"It was another phony case and we won it 3 to nothing."

It caps a week when the Senate's Republican majority acquitted President Trump on two impeachment charges.

Now, indications he may be ready to retaliate.

He did not deny reports a key witness in the House impeachment inquiry, Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman, may be reassigned from the White House to the Pentagon.

"Well, I'm not happy with him. Do you think I'm supposed to be happy with him? I'm not."

The President also retweeting calls for Colonel Vindman to be fired. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called in stunning.

"That's such a shame. What a patriotic person."

With deepening division on display, President Trump says he can unite the country.

"Our country today is more successful than it's ever been and that's unifying the country."

It's a message he hopes will carry him past November.
