The Speaker of the House of Representatives of the U.S. Congress, Nancy Pelosi, announced Tuesday the start of investigations to conduct a impeachment trial against President Donald Trump. And as always Twitter and other socials media sites was ready with memes.
The movement shocked the nation, and one of the aftershocks – maybe the most enjoyable – was a surge of memes regarding the impeachment on Twitter and Facebook. Folks all over the world have seized the momentum generated by this historic event with a range of funny reactions.
At a press conference, the Democrat said Trump “betrayed his oath of office” and that his actions “violated the Constitution.
According to U.S. media reports, an informant alerted intelligence services to a call between the U.S. president and a foreign leader, who was later revealed to be Ukrainian President Volodimir Zelensky.
Although the content of the conversation is unknown, reports indicate that Trump threatened to withhold military aid from his country to force Ukraine to investigate allegations of corruption against former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
Although Trump acknowledged having discussed Biden with Zelensky, he indicated that by threatening to withhold military assistance he was only trying to get Europe to increase its aid as well.
