Trump Impeachment Trial – level 1

18-02-2021 07:00

Donald Trump is the president of the US. He ends his job in January 2021. The end is not happy. Joe Biden wins the election. Donald Trump does not agree with it. It is January 6.

The government officially says that Joe Biden wins the election. Trump is speaking to people in Washington, D.C. These people love Trump. They are angry and sad that Trump does not win.

Trump says that these people must go to the US government buildings. They must fight. People go and fight. Five people die at a government building. Trump does not stop the people.

Some people say that Trump is dangerous. He must not become a president in the future. An impeachment trial starts. It is the second impeachment trial for Trump.

Difficult words: election (when people vote a president or another person for a job in politics), impeachment (when politicians officially say that the president does something bad), trial (a formal process when a judge must decide if somebody does something wrong).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
