To be impeached there needs to be concrete, or potentially concrete, evidence to prove the guilt of a president. No concrete evidence at this point has risen, which means Trump cannot be impeached. Yes, there is justifiable reasons for speculation and concern, yet a formal investigation cannot be launched based off of these things alone. By launching an investigation of that nature that would be like saying “It is ok to impeach a president if you do not like them,” which it is not.

Another area of scrutiny where Trump is involved is with his alleged affairs. The problem with using this as a reason for impeachment is that it is not legal. Yes it is immoral and doesn’t represent our American values, but that once again comes down to personal opinions rather than laws. Joanne Sumarsono (11) says that “she personally does not agree with Trump’s actions concerning his personal life,” but she does believe “it is important to support our president regardless of our personal opinions.” This is extremely accurate pertaining to our current political system.

In the end we can’t do anything to take Trump out of office since the Democratic party doesn’t have the necessary two thirds majority to formally impeach a president. All we can do is h it’s behind our country and support each other to the best of our abilities despite our differing viewpoints. As long as we are working together as a united country one president in one four year term cannot make that much of a difference in our future. That is what checks and balances are for.
