In the first few days of 2020, we were already shocked with how much the political events turned out that threatens to shaken up the entire world. For one, the United States of America has found itself at the brink of a possible great war against a Middle East superpower, Iran. This is not to mention the internal conflict that the United States has to take care of, which is the impeachment of the current US President, Donald Trump.
The whole world was shocked by the rather historic impeachment of Trump in Congress, which makes him one step away from being removed from the highest seat of power. Granted, the rest of the impeachment proceedings are not yet set in stone, and the Senate will get to decide whether Trump will have more days in the White House or he will be officially kicked out of the government post. Now, with the country facing a threat of war, chances are the US leaders would want to figure out a way to ease the pressure. Thus, it is possible that whatever verdict the Senators will give on Trump’s impeachment, the brewing war with Iran might just be a very important consideration.
Senate Might Be Pressured By The Public To Impeach Trump In Order To Stop A Crippling War
Whether we deny it or not, it is evident that the United States is not at its fittest condition to enter another period of war. Unlike the time of former President George W. Bush with the Iraq War, Trump’s administration is filled with internal issues that the Americans would rather see the government focus on the country first before meddling with international conflicts.
At this point, Trump has been very vocal about fighting it out with Iran after the latter threatened to finish off the US Army based in the Middle East. The reason for Iran’s threat is the death of its top military commander during a US air strike earlier this month. The Trump-led US forces have been unapologetic, and Trump himself even taunted Iran with his harsh remarks. If only Trump’s comments were just something out of a phone app for prank calling, then we can all just laugh at them, but they were not.
Some people think that Trump is only making matters worse, and if you ask the Americans today, they would rather not participate in another war. Now that the impeachment proceedings are on its way and the Democrats have successfully pushed for Trump’s impeachment in the House of Representatives, it would appear that Trump’s removal from office is one way to ease the tension between the US and Iran. Republican Congressmen were rumored to have pulled a stunt to delay the impeachment, but Trump’s fate now lies in the Senate.
