COLUMN: What President Trump’s Impeachment Could Mean


It seems as if something has finally stuck to the “Teflon” President Donald Trump.

Recently there have been allegations regarding Trump’s intentions to use his influence to persuade Ukraine and China in order to get re-elected in 2020 by asking for information about former Vice President Joe Biden. These allegations come from a whistleblower who has been said to have worked in the CIA and in the White house at one point in time.

While Republicans are skeptical about the validity of the source in that it isn’t primary, Democrats are saying that this is the one thing that could lead to President Trump’s Impeachment. Even the director of National Intelligence has regarded this information as “unprecedented.”

One of the most important questions to consider is: What does this mean for the future of America, and how will an impeachment affect the U.S.? While these are just claims, the investigations are ongoing and not much has happened in the way of actual action, it is an interesting fact to consider.

In terms of the stock market, market insiders claims that unless the President is actually impeached, and the situation evolves into real action, not much will happen in terms of the economy and the stock market. And if a dramatic change were to occur, it would happen very slowly, giving investors time to make adjustments. In short, experts say that these are mere headlines and if the real thing were to ensue, the impact would be small.

Another thing to consider when thinking about the future of America if the Trump impeachment were to come to fruition is the Vice President. Mike Pence could appear to be on Trump’s side now, however, if he were to step into a position of power, many believe that he would turn against Trump.

Also, the validity of Biden’s campaign for reversing Trump’s impact on the country would be considered mute if Pence manages to return everything back to “whatever normal means” for the country.

It seems that the campaigns for the Democratic side are based on Trump’s actions as President. It will be interesting to see how the 2020 election unfolds if he were to actually be impeached, because presidential candidates would possibly have to consider a whole new take on persuading the public for their vote.
