‘No one is above the law’

Donald Trump is a divisive head of state, with his DT quotes making him one of the most talked-about people in the world.

The president of the United States never fails to be controversial, and from explaining why he deserves a Nobel Prize to his comments about The Squad and the cancellation of a potential trip to Denmark, the past year has been no exception.

And let’s not forget his mocking comments this week about 16-year-old climate change activist Greta Thunberg.

It is what’s rumoured to go on inside the White House walls however that has got the world talking this week, after Speaker of the United States House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi announced that a formal impeachment inquiry had been initiated against Donald Trump.

According to the New York Times, impeachment is ‘the most severe action that Congress can take against a sitting president’, with rumours of an impeachment inquiry circling for years.

The impeachment inquiry, according to the New York Times, is accusing Trump of ‘betraying his oath of office and the nation’s security by seeking to enlist a foreign power to tarnish a rival for his own political gain’.

‘The actions taken to date by the president have seriously violated the Constitution,’ Nancy Pelosi said of the inquiry in a speech, announcing that Trump ‘must be held accountable’, and going on to state that ‘no one is above the law’.
