Boris Johnson at 500/1 to be next US president as Impeachment trial risks Trump’s re-election?

Donald J Trump is only the third US president to face impeachment proceedings, although for many it is no surprise.

In fact from the first day of his election to The White House, Trump had already established himself as a maverick politician on the campaign trail and it seemed that Americans were to see a new era of politics unfold.

Some have deemed his style populist, some erratic and chaotic and others narcissistic. However, although more White House staff have been fired than ever before and the president’s persistence to address the world stage through his twitter account, with less than  eloquent language, has been at best shocking and at worst infantile, he is still very popular with his grassroots support and leading the odds to secure the office for another term.

However, the Trump train has finally been contained, if not stopped, with the imminent trial by the Senate.

Having been found guilty by Congress of trying to block military aid to Ukraine in exchange for dirt on his political rival, Joe Biden, the second act unfolds in the upper chamber in the coming weeks.

Fortunately for Trump a two-thirds majority is required to convict him and with a Republican majority, it is very unlikely that he will be found guilty.

However, it seems that many White House officials were party to the phone conversation where Trump tried to bribe Ukraine’s Zelensky and although every effort was made to lock down the whole story, were outwitted by a concerned whistle-blower.

The inquiry in Congress had some impressive testimony from the likes of Bill Taylor the acting ambassador to the Ukraine who verified the Trump made military aid, and a visit to The White Hose conditional on information about Biden, which is the sort of citation that unnerves Republicans in an election  year.

Trump was found guilty of abusing power and obstructing Congress.

Although removing Trump from power seems unlikely in the sensate trial, there may be a sense among Republicans and the electorate at large, that Trump’s reign has finally run its course.

Trump’s allies control the Senate, but it is possible that they have had enough of trying to corral this maverick.

All across the US  media, there are programmes highlighting Trump’s increasingly chaotic behaviour, and while he may survive the Senate trial, many will be concerned about another five years of  erratic governance.

 

Many are hoping that Trump will actually take to the stand himself, which his narcissistic nature may be drawn to, because both Democrats and Republicans alike sense this is one way of the president curating his own demise, with his ridiculous rhetoric.

Interestingly Boris Johnson is at 500/1 to be next US president.
