Impeachment Trial Aftermath: What’s Next?

Impeachment Trial Aftermath: What's Next?
  • Trump blasts the Democrats.
  • Could Buttigieg end up the Democratic candidate?
  • The world keeps turning.
  • There could be a second round.

( – Now that the doomed-to-fail impeachment process is finally over, people are wondering where the road is going to take America. That’s a very good question.

On the morning after the trial concluded, President Trump vented his spleen at the process itself, and those who orchestrated it. In what some are calling an uncouth rant, he decried the entire affair as “evil” and “corrupt.” Then he brought his guns to bear on Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and the impeachment inquiry chief Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA). The adjectives the president applied to them included “horrible” and “vicious.”

The immediate future will focus on the Democratic Party’s primary race, leading up to the November 3, 2020, general election. Given the debacle in Iowa, the president and his campaign staff will be keeping a close eye on the events because of the impact it will have on them.

In today’s America, running to become president of the United States (POTUS) is at least as much about knowing the opposition’s weaknesses as it is extolling your strengths. If former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg wins the Democratic nomination after a meteoric rise from the relative obscurity of a city of just over 100,000 people, it’s going to be a challenge to see how he might approach leading the country. However, going up against a well-known politician like Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) would require a completely different tactic.

America does not live in a vacuum, of course, and one of the main duties of the president is to be the face of the country to the rest of the world. The divisiveness stirred up by the Liberal vendetta against Trump most certainly will not go unnoticed by the rest of the world.

Iran has continued posturing after the US military killed its top general because of his role as an international terrorist. Tensions are high with China’s economic and military aggressions.

The biggest issue may end up being the Democrats and their never-ending quest to occupy the Oval Office. They somehow feel they were cheated when Hillary Clinton lost in 2016. Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) has already proclaimed “we will not stop.” By hook or by crook, the Dems are obsessed with getting rid of Donald J. Trump. This may not be the last time the Senate convenes for an impeachment trial this year.
