New York Times: What's the best way to get rid of Trump?
What is the best way to get rid of US President Donald Trump? A question posed by columnist Michael Thomasky in an article in The New York Times.
Although dismissal is tempting, waiting until the presidential elections in 2020 remains, in the opinion of the writer, the strongest argument.
Thomasky begins his article by asking a questionable question: Are Donald Trump's opponents of politicians inclined to remove him from power through isolation and condemnation, or do we instead prefer to eliminate him by voting in 2020?
The reasons for the elections are not mentioned, and there is no reason to dismiss the isolation proceedings as a political process that requires the support of a sufficient number of Republican members of Congress to remove a party leader based on a long list of irregularities.
The course of justice
Tomasuke claims that President Trump repeatedly obstructed the course of justice in the United States and on a scene from the public.
Needless to say, the author makes a number of hypotheses to confirm his claim. For example, Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller has provided evidence of Trump's obstruction of justice and his cooperation with the Russians during the campaigns leading up to the 2016 US presidential election.
The author assumes that the Democrats in the House of Representatives will do as little as possible to document the Trump family's numerous violations of the US Constitution, which in one of its clauses prohibits presidents from receiving rewards from outside parties.
The writer, however, ruled out Trump's removal from office because that would require 20 Republican senators to vote in favor of the resolution, assuming that all of their 47 Democratic counterparts would vote for him.

The impeachment process may carry the possibility that the Senate will not be able to convict the president. Trump will then be able to run for re-election and show himself a victim of the Democrats' hatred and the press he considers an enemy of the people.
Whether members do or do not, many argue that Democrats have a constitutional responsibility to exercise that right.
Isolation and legislation
In any case, is it not the Democrats who say the Constitution makes no sense? If legislators can not dismiss a president whose election was not legal, who can isolate him?
All of these are good questions as Thomaski describes them, but there is one answer to them all. Although isolation is an exercise of authority "clear and legitimate", another way of exclusion is also included in the Constitution: elections.
Elections are the way Americans prefer to get rid of the presidents and parties they do not want, and have done so 44 times in their history.
There is another reason Thomasky likes to win President Trump through the ballot box. He thinks the election is doing more damage to the Republican Party in the long term.
If Trump had been removed with the approval of twenty Republican members of Congress, the Republicans would say, "Look, we have proved to our senses."
But if Republicans re-nominate Trump for the 2020 presidential election, and voters say their word, it would ruin the Republican Party, the article said.
But this idea also carries a risk, and the 2020 election may win Trump. The insular proceedings may have the possibility that the Senate will not be able to convict the president, and then Trump will be able to run for re-election and show himself a victim of the Democrats' hatred and the press he considers an enemy of the people.
