Trump to be re-elected in 2020 despite impeachment

American President Donald Trump has been impeached, making him the third president in American history to receive such a censure.
He has been impeached on two charges- abuse of power and obstruction to Congress. However despite this, he is looking likely to be re-elected when the American election gets underway in 2020.
Impeachment is the US constitution’s ultimate remedy for high crimes and misdemeanours. It is a process by which charges are brought in the US Congress which will form the basis of a trial in the Senate.
The process is a political one, rather than criminal.
After hours of debating, the House of Representatives gathered to vote and ultimately charged him with abusing the power of his office by attempting to extort a political favour from Ukraine. The House then voted on a second article of impeachment, approving formal charges that Mr Trump had obstructed Congress during the subsequent congressional investigation into his conduct.
The Senate will take up the approved impeachment articles in the new year.
