“The 25th Amendment poses no risk to me,” Trump said from Alamo, Texas, referring to Democrats’ call for Vice President Mike Pence to declare him unfit for office.
“The time for appeasement has come”
“The time for appeasement has come for our country, the time for peace and calm”, added the American president, in a speech with a tone contrasting singularly with that, very aggressive, delivered on January 6 in front of his supporters just before the assault on the Capitol.
More isolated than ever within his own camp, Donald Trump could become the first American president to be twice indicted in Congress (“impeached”) in impeachment proceedings.
The House will consider the indictment on Wednesday and is expected to vote on the same day.
A “totally ridiculous” impeachment procedure
When he left Washington on Tuesday morning, he denounced this procedure initiated by the Democrats, deeming it “totally ridiculous” and affirming that it aroused “immense anger” across the United States.
In the turmoil eight days from the end of his mandate, he refused to acknowledge any responsibility in the assault on Capitol Hill, judging that his speech had been “quite appropriate”.
He met Monday evening his vice-president Mike Pence who has, it seems, decided to join forces with him against the Democrats for the time being, rejecting calls to dismiss him from his post.
“I kept my promises”
In Texas on Tuesday, Donald Trump extensively praised the wall built on the border with Mexico. “I kept my promises,” he said, referring to a 450-mile (725-kilometer) wall.
However, we are far, very far from the “great, magnificent” wall promised by Donald Trump in the campaign in 2016.
Of this total, only about twenty kilometers corresponds to the construction of a wall where there was no physical barrier previously. The rest corresponds to improvements and / or reinforcements of existing barriers.
And Mexico never paid for the wall, as the real estate mogul had promised.
