Is Donald Trump innocent or not?

Politicians and Power - Featured Image 1

Although the impeachment trial suggested that Donald Trump was innocent other evidence proves that he is not. He told Ukriane he would help them, but only if he dug up some dirt on his political rival and his son. The outcome was effectively assured after senators on Friday voted against hearing witnesses. Donal Trump’s Impeachment trial officially began on the 18th of December 2019 and ended on the 5th of February 2020 (1 month, 2 weeks and 4 days). Donald Trump, who is seeking a second four year term in the 3 November election, always denied wrongdoing. His re-election campaign said in a statement: “President Trump has been totally vindicated and its now time to get to the business of the American people.” Donald Trump- whose personal approval rating with America’s voters hit a personal best of 49% this week, according to Gallup- tweeted that he would speak on Thursday about the case. Some Republican senators criticised Mr Trumps behaviour in recent days, but said that it did not rise to the limit of impeachment.

So do you think that Donald Trump should be innocent or not? Put your opinion below in the comments.

    he's probably lying my reasons for this are:
    .Trump isn't very kind.
    .He only kind to his supporters , to keep his title and people like him such as Boris for example they are both fans of brexit .

    also he thinks he's so classy and more important than the queen when he's not i hope you agree

    kind regards devoted_idea

    Donald Trump has been found to be innocent, or as they say in the American government ‘not guilty’. Trump has been acquitted which means that there isn’t any evidence that he has used Ukraine to make Joe Biden and his son look bad. This isn’t fair because the court wouldn’t let any witnesses in to speak the truth, almost automatically proving his innocence. He stated that “I’ve done many bad things in my life, I will admit... but this is what the end result is,” and as he said this, he held up a newspaper titled ‘Trump Acquitted’. As of the fifth of February, this was the day that the trial concluded as it was the third impeachment trial of the US ever, preceded by Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton.

    In conclusion, after researching on BBC and Wikipedia, I have now understood the process of the third US impeachment trial and why Trump has been acquitted and why he has been found innocent.

    ( Some of this info is from other websites ).
    Why is Trump on trial?:
    Trump is on trial because his critics suspect him of attempting to make Ukraine tell him secret info on his rival, Joe Biden.
    Now that the trial has ended, the decision has been made. Trump is staying for sure until the next general election.

    Trump is supposed to be innocent (although he might not be) to my opinion i think he is innocent because he is a president and if you are a president you have to be innocent. Some people might think he is not. I still agree with him being innocent because nothing has shown me that he is not innocent, sometimes it can be hard not changing my mind with all of the people saying he is not innocent around me. At the moment i am copping.

    Thanks for commenting such good comments on my post. Now its my turn to give my opinion.

    I think that Donald Trump should not be innocent. This is because I believe that his mistakes are big and will impact the rest of some peoples lives.
    For example, Joe Bidon. Ukraine have been blackmailed by Donald Trump.
    He said that if they dug up some dirt in his political rival and his son, then he would give them lots of money.
    Donald Trump has faced some minor consequences but I think that they should have been bigger because of the effect that he has made to other peoples lives.
    His political rival is now put at risk of not getting the job because of what Trump did.
    Because we live in a democracy, it should be a fair vote.
    What I mean by this is that the vote should be open to everyone and everyone included should be treated equally (unlike the Mr Trump situation).
    Please feel free to give your feedback on my idea and be sure to include the reasons why and your own ideas to.

    I can see what you are saying happy_fact and what you said is true but there is part of you explanation that you are missing.

    President Trump was accused of breaking the law by pressuring Ukraine's leader to dig up damaging information on a political rival.
    In July 2019, he urged his Ukrainian counterpart to investigate one of the frontrunners to take him on in the 2020 presidential election. This mattered, opposition Democrats said, because it is illegal to ask foreign entities for help in winning a US election. He says he has done nothing wrong.
    After Mr Trump was impeached in December, a trial took place that could have led to the president being removed. In the end, he was aquitted meaning that has was proven innocent like you said.
    I got my infomation from the BBC Website.
