A wasted opportunity

Democrats could find another way to bar Donald Trump from high office, using a little-known clause in the constitution’s 14th amendment, according to a leading US legal scholar.

My take on this is, what’s the point of impeachment when an unfortunate greater number of people will vote to not convict despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

These politicians vote not for what’s right for the country, but for what’s right for them – personally. This is a disservice to the American people and makes democracy look weak and malleable by forces of self interest.

With a slim but clear majority of Americans supporting the charge of insurrection on Donald J Trump, what’s the point of a great democracy like America, when the people are only listened to when convenient?

President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris have a lot of work to do and I hope they can achieve much, particularly in relation to the coronavirus pandemic.

The damage Donald J Trump has done to America and the world is virtually incalculable. He must not be allowed to ever hold office again.

He should feel lucky to hold a golf club membership!
