(UNITED STATES OF AMERICA) – Our neighbours to the south, the United States of America had their house of representatives vote in favour of impeaching their President, Donald J. Trump.
Trump campaigned on “Making America Great Again” which lead to him winning a landslide of districts in the United States back in 2016. After his election to his first term in office, he is now campaigning on “Keep America Great”.
President Trump has been impeached on two charges. One of “abuse of power” and the other for obstructing Congress in its investigation. These charges have not been proven and Trump will be brought to trial over the matter where it is expected he will be acquitted by the Republicans who voted unanimously not to impeach the president. Even some Democrats voted against the impeachment and some are talking about the possibility of switching over to the Republican side of the political landscape.
The issue at hand is the allegation that President Trump attempted to enlist the President of Ukraine to investigate his political opponent in the 2020 Presidential Election, Democrat Joe Biden. Trump constantly requested that the public read the transcripts of the call and indicated that no such thing happened.
Today’s vote regarding the impeachment of the president was 230 – 197 on the first count and 229 -198 on the second count. Democrats currently have a majority in the US House of Representatives, which shows a clear and divisive political line drawn through the country.
Republicans are calling this out as the Democrats attempting to sway the 2020 elections and allege that they don’t have a chance to beat President Trump in the 2020 election. Trump was busy at an election rally during the impeachment vote today, he’s still running for President in 2020.
Very few people ever cross-party lines without having to deal with the fallout from the move. Van Drew is considering changing parties due to the impeachment of Trump. He was seen sitting with Republicans during the hearing. Representative Justin Amash, a Michigan conservative left the Republican party and became an independent due to the impeachment said: “I come to this floor, not as a Republican, not as a Democrat, but as an American.”.
Trump is expected to surge in the pre-election polls after this.
