Having run out of ideas, Donald Trump has finally agreed to leave the US presidential post.
Four hours of Twitter suspension on Thursday, US President Donald Trump returned with a video on the microblogging site conceding defeat to President-elect Joe Biden. He addressed violence and said “a new administration” would be inaugurated on January 20, as legally scheduled.
This leaves Donald Trump with around 300 hours as the US president. One wonders what Donald Trump would do with these 300 hours.
A New York Times report said Donald Trump was exploring possibility of him as the US president pardoning himself. Donald Trump fears his “enemies” would find out ways to prosecute him once he leaves the White House.No American president has pardoned himself till date. So, even if Donald Trump grants himself clemency, his decision will be challenged in the US judiciary.
Donald Trump lost two cabinet members soon after his call incited mob violence at the Capitol leaving four persons dead. First to resign was Elaine Chao, the transport secretary.
Then, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos sent Donald Trump her resignation over the rampage by his supporters at the Capitol.His support dwindled further within his own Republican Party with his support to the ochlocracy in the oldest constitutional democracy in continuity.
He came very close to being impeached second time before he conceded defeat. Last time, he was acquitted by the Senate, where the Republican Party is in majority.
