So what is US President Donald Trump thinking after getting impeached? At a rally in Michigan, Trump hit back at Democrats and said that ‘it doesn’t really feeling like we are being impeached.’ Amid loud cheers of ‘MAGA’, Trump said that House Democrats ‘looked like a bunch of fools…they’ll receive a big backlash at the box office.’ Addressing at a Christmas rally in Michigan, Trump said that the Democrats have ‘branded themselves with an eternal mark of shame.’ Michigan rally was seen as Trump’s answer to the proceedings at the House of Representatives that impeached him in historic vote.
"With today’s illegal unconstitutional and partisan impeachment, the do-nothing Democrats are declaring their deep hatred and disdain for the American voter," Trump said. The Michigan speech went on for more than two hours. Taunting his detractors, Trump asked, ‘Have you seen my poll numbers in the last four weeks?’ He also slammed the Opposition saying, ‘they've been trying to impeach me since before I ran.’
After the impeachment, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, “I view this day, this vote, as something that we did to honour the vision of our founders to establish a republic, the sacrifice of our men and women in uniform to defend our democracy and the republic, and the aspirations of our children that they will always live in a democracy, and we have tried to do everything we can to make sure that that is their reality."
The US House of Representatives on Wednesday night impeached President Donald Trump on two counts -- abuse of power and obstructing the Congress. The first article of impeachment, abuse of power, was on party lines with 230 to 197 votes. The second article of impeachment, obstruction to the Congress, was voted 229-198 votes. All four Democratic Indian American members of the House of Representatives voted to impeach Trump. The impeachment now moves to the Senate where Supreme Court Chief Justice would preside over the trial.
