Donald Trump remains a big threat to American Democracy, Pelosi

U.S. Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi criticized the Senate’s acquittal of President Donald Trump and said he remains “an ongoing threat to American democracy”.

US media reported, “Today, the President and Senate Republicans have normalized lawlessness and rejected the system of checks and balances of our Constitution,” Pelosi said in a statement issued after the Senate acquitted Trump of both impeachment articles passed by the House.

“The President remains an ongoing threat to American democracy, with his insistence that he is above the law and that he can corrupt the elections if he wants to,” Pelosi said.

Senate Democratic minority leader Chuck Schumer said Trump’s acquittal by the Senate was “virtually valueless” since Republicans refused witnesses at his impeachment trial.
