Senate acquits Trump in historic vote as re-election campaign looms

President Donald Trump was acquitted on Wednesday in his U.S. Senate impeachment trial, saved by fellow Republicans who rallied to protect him nine months before he asks voters in a deeply divided America to give him a second White House term, Reuters reports.

The businessman-turned-politician, 73, survived only the third presidential impeachment trial in U.S. history - just like the two other impeached presidents - in his turbulent presidency’s darkest chapter. Trump now plunges into an election season that promises to further polarize the country.

Trump was acquitted largely along party lines on two articles of impeachment approved by the Democratic-led House of Representatives on Dec. 18. The votes to convict Trump fell far short of the two-thirds majority required in the 100-seat Senate to remove him from office under the U.S. Constitution.

    Trump is Pro American business, Pro American jobs, and striving to regain lost prestige. What more can you expect from a President for his country?

    Trump will live to "blow his trump-et" for another day!

    What an unfair decision, in which a criminal, confirmed by testimony from witnesses who are beyond any doubt, is acquitted by opportunist politicians for the sake of keeping their party in power.
