Donald Trump is no longer president but is still facing a potential conviction should the Senate agree on whether he is guilty of inciting the riot that happened in Washington DC on 6th January.

Joe Biden has said that the trial of Trump “has to happen” but is doubtful whether they will be able to get enough Republicans needed to secure the two-thirds majority needed in the Senate to convict Trump of “incitement to insurrection.”

Regardless of what happens next, this is a shocking inditement of Trump’s presidency who is the only man to ever serve in the White House to be impeached twice, a record that is likely to stand for quite some time. 

This fact has led Michael Beschloss, the presidential historian for NBC News and the author of ten different books on US presidents to brand Trump and his presidency as the definition of “disgraced.”

Many found it hard to disagree.

Ten Republican members of the House voted to join forces with Democrats following the 6th January riots which came shortly after Trump had given a speech outside of the White House, which many feel compelled his supporters to act in a violent fashion. The resulting violence left five people dead, with rioters also attempting to threaten the lives of elected officials.
