US President Donald Trump is having it very rough after the Capitol Hill protest by his supporters which is still generating heated reactions from Americans and people around the world.
As it stands now, Trump is seeing more troubles from different quarters which make his last days in the White House to be full of troubles here and there. Maybe Trump did not expect these troubles coming his way as a sitting President. In fact, more are still loading.
Facebook just banned Trump from two of its social media platforms: Facebook and Instagram after the Capitol Hill insurrection by Trump’s supporters. According to Mark Zuckerberg, the ban is indefinite until a peaceful transition of power to President-Elect, Joe Biden has been completed and peace returns to the now troubled US following the violent protest.
Major trouble looms ahead: Trump to be impeached soon
The Democrats are having none of these. Before now, they tried to impeach Trump but the President was lucky that the impeachment was not approved by the Republican-controlled US Senate then. It was a hard decision but Trump was lucky to escape the impeachment some months ago. All the efforts made by the Democrats then to impeach Trump failed.
Now things may be very different following the Capitol Hill insurrection by Trump’s die-hard supporters in apparent move to stop the peaceful transition of power to a democratically elected President of the US. This is the final straw the Democrats believe will break the camel’s back in their bid to remove Trump from office.
In fact, Trump may not be lucky this time because some patriotic Republicans are even totally against the violent protest by Trump’s supporters and are very likely to support the move to impeach the President in order to defend the democracy in the US.
US is seen by many people and countries around the world as the model of a democratic country but the Capitol Hill insurrection by supporters of a sitting US President brought a dent to that image and reputation that US has enjoyed over the years.<p class="has-drop-cap" value="<amp-fit-text layout="fixed-height" min-font-size="6" max-font-size="72" height="80">It was simply a big disgrace. So, US lawmakers are making serious moves to impeach Trump soon to redeem the country's image. It may be in the next few days since Trump has barely 13 days to complete his tenure but the lawmakers want him removed before his tenure officially ends. If they succeed in doing that, <strong>Trump will make history as US President that initially escaped impeachment but still later got impeached after the Congress invocation of the 25th Amendment.</strong>It was simply a big disgrace.

Trump may not escape impeachment this time
Leading the serious move to impeach Trump is US Speaker, Nancy Pelosi. Pelosi has been at loggerheads with Trump over the years. She has a chance to lead others to impeach Trump this time after the first attempt failed. Pelosi insist that if the Senate does not sanction it this time, the House will go ahead to remove Trump due to the seriousness of the act committed at Capitol Hill.
Trump may not escape the impeachment this time because the Democrats have majority in US house of Representatives and a good number in the Senate currently. The Senate is no longer dominated by the Republicans. Moreover, some Republicans are very likely to back the move to impeach Trump due to the events of the last few days.
