Popular Nigerian Politician, Femi Fani Kayode has revealed what would happen to the outgoing President of The United States, Donald Trump hours after he was voted by the house representatives to be impeached. Recall that there was a riot in the US Capitol on the 6th of January, 2021 carried out by a mob of supporters of President Trump in an attempt to overturn his defeat in the 2020 Presidential Election. The Congress meeting which was held to certify the President-elect Joe Biden was cut short by the angry mob after President Trump made a video encouraging his supporters to march to the US Capitol and defend their country.
The movement became toxic at a point and it triggered a violence attack on the US Capitol which claimed the lives of at least 5 people. It was all over the news and many people blame President Trump for inciting the violence. He was thereafter banned on several platforms which include Twitter, You-tube, Facebook, Instagram and many others. President Trump was also charged with an offence of instigating insurrection. As a result of this, President Trump was considered unfit to continue as the President of the United States for the remaining 7 days for his administration. Thus, the House of Representatives had to vote on whether to impeach the President or not.
The result of the votes goes thus ‘223 members voted Yes to President Trump impeachment’ while ‘205 members voted no to his impeachment.’ A conclusion was reached at the United States House of Representatives under Nancy Pelosi that President Trump should be relieved of his duty as the President of the United States. This makes President Trump the first president in the history of the United States of America to be impeached twice by the House of Representatives.
Hours after this happened, Nigerian Politician Femi Fani Kayode writes thus on twitter “Clap for Pelosi. She has done her worse but it takes NOTHING from Trump because the matter ends there and Trump will not go to the Senate. Trump WILL remain in Office till January 20th and he is still eligible to run in 2024. The MAGA movement remains strong and millions still love Trump!” Let me break down what Femi Fani Kayode is insinuating by the above statement that President Trump will remain in Office and will not be impeached even after everything that has happened.
Many people have a misconception already that President Trump has been impeached but the truth is that he has not yet been impeached; he was only voted by the House of Representatives to be impeached. Before the President can be impeached, the bill of his impeachment will need to go to the upper house of the United States Congress which is the SENATE. That is the only place where the final decision to impeach President Trump will be taken and even after they agree to impeach him in the SENATE, the only person who will have the final say is the Vice President to President Trump which is Mike Pence.
So, Femi Fani Kayode believes that it is almost impossible for the upper house of the US Congress to agree to impeach Trump and also his own Vice to sign it within the few days he has in office. President Trump still has one more term in office which he can later contest for in the next coming election. Do not forget that more than 75, 000, 000 Americans voted for Trump despite his opposition. So come 2024, Femi Fani Kayode believes President Trump will take his rightful seat again.
