While we supported the impeachment of President Trump on the grounds that he abused his power, we are going to have to agree with Tulsi Gabbard that the impeachment of Trump has only increased the likelihood that he will be reelected and possibly the Republicans regaining control of the House of Representatives.
From The Hill:
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) predicted Monday that it would be more difficult for House Democrats to remain in control of the House following passage of articles of impeachment against President Trump.
In a video tweeted Monday evening, the 2020 candidate for president wrote that Trump’s chances of winning reelection had been “greatly increased” because of the House’s vote.
“Unfortunately, the House impeachment of the president has greatly increased the likelihood Trump will remain the president for the next 5 years,” Gabbard says in the video.
“We all know that Trump is not going to be found guilty by the U.S. Senate,” she added.
Trump is a polarizing figure and yes we are not the biggest fans. However, he does have a base of support and this whole effort can energize them to no degree. We learned that lesson in 2016 and his defeat of Hillary whom everyone thought was going to win that election.
What is needed is a strong candidate with a strong voice to take him on and challenge his lies and his bad policy decisions.
