Donald Trump's Impeachment: What The World Is Saying

It was a historic moment on Wednesday in the United States when the house vote to impeached President Donald Trump for the second time. The impeachment follows the deadly attack on the Capitol that led to the death of some Americans last week.

This move has prompted diverse reactions on social media as people take to their Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms to comment on the impeachment. 

It has been reported earlier that the House voted 232 to 197 to impeach President Trump with the support of 10 members of his own party. 

Trump was formally charged with inciting an “insurrection” as he told supporters at a rally near the National Mall to march to the Capitol in an effort to get Republicans to overturn his defeat at the presidential election.

In the Capitol riots, at least five people, including a Capitol Police officer, died in the violence and its immediate aftermath.

Many flocked to Twitter, to share their thoughts about impeaching Trump and several shared memes and jokes about it.

Even several celebrities also took to the social media space to express their views on the impeachment, from Chrissy Teigen to Jimmy Kimmel and several others.

Meanwhile, after the successful impeachment by the Nancy Pelosi led lawmakers, Trump released a video statement calling for calm.

Trump said, “No true supporter of mine could ever endorse political violence. No true supporter of mine could ever disrespect law enforcement or our great American flag.” 

“Now I am asking everyone who has ever believed in our agenda to be thinking of ways to ease tensions, calm tempers and help to promote peace in our country,” he said.

Speaking further, the outgoing President decried what he described as the “unprecedented assault on free speech we have seen in recent days.

“Efforts to censor, cancel and blacklist our fellow citizens are wrong and they are dangerous, What is needed now is for us to listen to one another, not to silence one another.”

Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat and other social media platforms have since blocked the President, accusing him of using their platforms to incite violence in America.
