US President Donald Trump faced the dishonor of an impeachment prosecution in the House of Representatives a week before the end of his term of office. On the 13th, the House of Representatives voted for President Trump’s impeachment bill for inciting a civil war by encouraging the protesters to invade the parliament, and passed it with a majority vote. After the 2019 Ukrainian scandal, President Trump became the first president in U.S. history to be impeached twice in the House of Representatives.
Pessimism prevails because at least 17 out of 50 Republican lawmakers must cast a rebellion vote in order for the impeachment bill to pass in the Senate vote that will take place after Trump’s retirement on the 20th, but passing the House impeachment bill alone is not light. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that “even the President of the United States has shown in a bipartisan way that he is not above the law.” President Trump left the biggest stain in US political history in 240 by destroying the tower of procedural democracy built by his predecessors. Immediately after passing the impeachment prosecution, he said, “Violence is contrary to everything that I believe and that our movement supports. “We can’t tolerate it,” he criticized the violence in the Capitol and ordered an early hoist to commemorate the two congressional policemen who died. But I don’t feel the authenticity. Immediately after the congressional riot, “I love you. It’s very special.” It is only seen as a show to escape the Senate’s impeachment.
President Trump must accept painfully that 10 Republican MPs rebelled against the impeachment vote. They all criticized “the president of the United States has never made a greater betrayal of the presidency and constitution.” With this atmosphere of the Republican Party, it remains to be seen what the anger the general public would have felt.
It is thanks to the fandom that President Trump’s approval rating has not fallen below 30% even after his inauguration, despite the last and extreme policies. His fandom politics, looking only at the extreme supporters, divided the United States and put American democracy into crisis. It is paradoxical that the fandom, which used to act as a shield for President Trump, hastened his downfall in a congressional riot. It is self-profit that President Trump became a plant president who could do nothing before retirement. The decline of fandom politics will open a new path for American politics. President Trump, who shouted’Make America Great Again’, will be recorded as the’President who made America the most shabby’. This should never happen in Korea. Political circles, whose conflict between camps has reached the level of danger, should be used as teachers on the other hand.
