President Donald Trump was impeached by the House of Representatives on Wednesday, making him the third President to be impeached in U.S. history.
Only 2 Democrats opposed the 2 articles of impeachment, and every Republican voted against the resolution.
Black Twitter celebrated Trump’s impeachment on Wednesday night. Many were blissfully unaware that Trump is still their president.
Trump hosted a campaign rally in Michigan, while the Democrats debated on Capitol Hill. The Trump campaign released a tersely-worded statement condemning the Democrats for their “cold, calculated, and concocted 3-year impeachment sham.”
“The President is just getting stronger while support for the Democrats’ political theater has faded,” the statement continued.
The next step in the impeachment process is a hearing in the Senate, where the Republicans hold the majority.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has indicated he will move to dismiss the trial without hearing any witnesses.
