Trump Impeachment Trial – level 2
Donald Trump was the 45th president of the US who ended his office in January 2021. Now, an impeachment trial started because some members of the US government said that Trump was responsible for the attack on a US government building.
Trump tried several times to change the result of the US presidential election. On January 6, the government counted the votes and confirmed the victory of Joe Biden. At the same moment, Trump was talking to his supporters, and he told them to go to the government building and fight for the truth. Five people died at that building, and Trump did nothing to end the attack.
Some people said that the attack was the result of Trump´s violent language. They also said that Trump would be dangerous if he became a president in the future.
Difficult words: impeachment trial (the process with the US president when some people believe that he did something bad as a president), victory (when a person wins), supporter (a person who likes somebody, usually a politician or a sports team, and he says it openly).
