President Donald Trump has told his followers that the blame lies with them if they accuse him and that it could lead the United States to become a third-world country.
Trump raised the specter of the accusation if the Democrats gain control of Congress during their rally in Billings, Montana on Thursday night.
He warned that a Congress controlled by the Democrats would pursue the accusation despite the strong economy and set a precedent that would harm future presidents.
Some Democratic lawmakers called for Trump's dismissal.

Let's say a Democrat is elected and we say we have a Republican house. We're going to accuse that democrat, right? Trump said.
"You will have a country that will become a third world country because if the opposing party becomes president, even before it starts, even before you discover whether or not it will do a good job, they will say, & # 39; we want to prosecute him! & # 39; & # 39;
& # 39; If it happens, it's your fault because you did not go out to vote. & # 39;
Trump continued with the issue of dismissal, saying: "How do you accuse someone who is doing a great job, who has not done anything wrong?
"Our economy is good, how do you do it, how do you do it, how do you do it? & # 39;
He warned his followers: "You're not just voting for a candidate, you're voting for which party controls the Congress. Something very important Something very important. "
Trump was in Montana to support Senate candidate Matt Rosendale, who is challenging Democrat Sen. Jon Tester, a Republican Party primary target in the midterm elections.

While standing next to Rosendale, Trump said that Tester "will never drain the swamp because he lives in the swamp."
Trying to portray the Montana farmer as a tool of the Liberal Democrats, Trump said: "Jon Tester speaks as if he were from Montana, but vote as if it were Nancy Pelosi," a reference to the minority leader of the House, a frequent target of Trump.
Trump also fired Tester for his role in torpedoing Ronny Jackson's Trump nomination to head the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Earlier this year, Tester launched unsubstantiated and anonymous accusations against Jackson that accused him of drunkenness at work, overprescribing medications and fostering a hostile work environment. Jackson, a Navy Rear Admiral who was Trump's personal physician, denied the claims and eventually withdrew his nomination.
"What Tester did to Admiral Jackson should never be allowed," Trump said, describing the accusations as "lies."
