Trump becomes third US president to be impeached
A much awaited Trump rally in the small city of Battle Creek, Michigan, coincided with the day of his impeachment in Washington.
The historic vote in the House of Representatives took place as the US president spoke to around 7,000 of his most beloved supporters.
“We want Trump, we want Trump,” they chanted before he even came out.
Trump rarely loses an oppurtunity to vent his anger on rival Democrats, or against the media, or any other force he thinks are conspiring against him.
The president handled it in the best Trump-ish way that he could.
“The Democrats are declaring their deep hatred and disdain for the American voter,” Trump said to boos and cheers.
“They’ve been trying to impeach me from day one. They’ve been trying to impeach me from before I ran,” he said.
The Democratic-led House made the Republican businessman the third president in US history subjected to the humiliation of impeachment.
As a debate that lasted 10 hours passed, lawmakers voted to impeach the president for abuse of power, through forcing Ukraine’s president to investigate his potential White House challenger Joe Biden, and for preventing congressional probe with Kiev.
Trump, however, seemed to be enjoying despite the political angst.
The crowd laughed at his jokes and cheered for him.
“I’d rather be here. These rallies are great,” he told the crowd. “You are inspiring.”
“Four more years, four more years,” they chanted.
