Democrats are beginning to split on the issue of impeaching President Trump as they are faced with the choice of pursuing impeachment or working on Joe Biden’s proposed $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief bill.
New York Times columnist David Brooks highlighted this issue when he explained that he believes coronavirus relief is a more important matter while he supports impeaching President Trump.
Brooks said, “I completely support impeachment, think this is the right thing to do. I think it would be a bad thing to have the trial in the Senate. Joe Biden has to pass that legislation. … $1.9 trillion is a very complicated piece of legislation.”
With President Trump just days away from leaving the White House and Biden being sworn in as the 46th President of the United States, impeachment is a purely political issue that many Americans don’t care about.
The economy is a much more relevant and pressing matter for the millions of Americans who suffered from the coronavirus pandemic’s economic fallout.
