Our alleged president, Donald Trump, and his chance of retaining his presidential office for his full first term seems very slim, and many officials speculate that he may be out of office before even before the midterms.
According to a discussion between the former Secretary of Labor, Robert Reich and a former Republican member of the Congress, which Reich revealed in a Facebook post, all is not well with the government.
The White House is collapsing and the GOP is sinking with it. Trump has really veered off his track, and the rest of the House members are using this opportunity to achieve their selfish aims including big tax cuts, and regulation rollbacks.
This morning I phoned my friend, a former Republican member of Congress.
Me: What’s going on? Seems like the White…
The Republicans are speculating Trump will go down in a blazing glory in the near future, so Vice President Mike Pence is being positioned to take over the mantle of leadership.
A historian and political pundit, Allan Lichtman, who predicted Trump would win the 2016 presidential election has also foreseen that Trump will not be in the White House for long.
The professor said there is a Russian sword of Damocles hanging over Trump and there is a 50/50 chance he could be impeached before the midterms election of 2018, depending on the congressional investigation which could expose his administration.
Reasons why Trump could be out of office before the midterms
One of the reasons leading to Trump’s eventual impeachment is his alleged obstruction of justice. Trump dismissed the former FBI Director, James Comey without any justifiable reason in an effort to hinder the investigation of his Russian connections.
If Trump should be allowed to continue in office, this could mean more violations. The only remedy for Presidential obstruction of justice is an impeachment, period.
Other reasons could eventually include what could be seen as crimes against humanity, as he decided to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris Climate Accords – the worldwide effort to stop climate change.
Trump violated two rules which impact the oval office – the emoluments clause of the U.S. Constitution that prevents him from taking a gift from foreign powers, as well as another law which prohibit public officials benefiting from insider knowledge.
Trump seems to have sensed all the odds around him, mostly in his plan to fire Mueller, but the future of his presidency is still filled with so many uncertainties; his supporters are backing out and his base is reducing.
Let’s watch and see if our ‘dear leader’ can beat these predictions.
