US President Donald Trump was on Wednesday acquitted off the
two impeachment articles by the senate majority, which were passed by the house
But political analysis in the country shows that things are
not done with politics, despite the victorious win by Republicans in the Wednesday
According to the House Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem
Jeffries, who was also an impeachment manager in Trump’s trial, the Democrats
are dedicated to serve Americans and will get things done on behalf of every
“Our DNA, as Democrats, is very different. Because
we’re committed to getting things done on behalf of the American people, even
if it means working with this particular person, sitting at 1600 Pennsylvania
Avenue at the moment,” Jeffries said.
He said that after the impeachment trial failure, their
focus as democrats now shifts to the next 10 months to election.
“So we’re not focused on four more years, we’re focused
on what’s ahead of us, right now, in terms of getting things done on behalf of
everyday Americans,” he said.
CNN reports that about a half of Americans wanted the
President out of power, and despite this acquittal, the saga of Trumps
impeachment will only be put to rest when the ultimate jury –150 million
American voters –delivers a final verdict in November.
Although the president is expected to claim complete
absolution during his address today (Thursday), based on the state of his exoneration,
which has been christened as an acquittal of high crimes and misdemeanors, a
number of leaders, a few from Republican party, are still convinced by the
impeachment articles that were to send him home.
Utah Sen. Mitt Romney, who has an independent power base –defected
and voted to convict the President of impeachable crimes, is among the Republicans
that have discovered truth in the Democrats impeachment drive.
The presidential race debate also takes a different course
following the President impeachment acquittal, with former Vice President Joe
Biden “seizing on Trump’s escape to elaborate on his core theme that the
President is unfit for a second term”.
“I can’t imagine being President of the United States
and having all one party plus someone from your own party vote to say you
should be thrown out of office and view that as a victory,” Biden said.
November 2020 elections
The November 2020 US presidential election will be the 59th
quadrennial presidential election, with voters selecting presidential electors
who in turn on December 14, 2020, will either elect a new president and vice
president or re-elect the incumbents Donald Trump and Mike Pence.
The series of presidential primary elections and caucuses
are scheduled to be held during the first six months of 2020.
This nominating process is also an indirect election, where
voters cast ballots selecting a slate of delegates to a political party’s
nominating convention, who then in turn elect their party’s nominees for
president and vice president.
