Donald Trump’s presidency comes to an end as Joe Biden is inaugurated today.
After four chaotic years, the controversial 45th POTUS has left the White House for the last time. He will not attend his successor’s inauguration and instead went to Florida to sulk.
His defeat in November was a massive relief to the millions of Americans who feared the prospect of another four years with Trump.
Joe Biden is expected to be quick to enforce the legislation in his first 100 days to turn the page that is sure to be remembered by a tumultuous period in American history.
But can Donald Trump run for president again in 2024 and get another term?
Can Donald Trump run for president in 2024?
It looks like Donald Trump may run for president again in 2024 – but impeachment could change that.
If the impeachment process continues and Trump is convicted, the Senate can vote to no longer hold public office. This would prohibit him from running for a second term in the Oval Office.
The soon-to-be former president boasted that it was “just the beginning” in a farewell speech to supporters, and there is speculation that he will drop the Republican Party and form his own “Patriot Party”.
But Trump has legal troubles waiting for him as allegations of sexual misconduct, using his office for profit, forging business records, pressuring officials to “find” more votes, and obstruction of justice.
When is the Senate process?
It is not yet known when Donald Trump will stand before the Senate.
Some believe the Democrats will postpone an impeachment process until after Biden’s first 100 days in office so that the new president can move forward with his agenda and early priorities.
And legal scholars differ in whether the Senate has the constitutional authority to condemn a president who has already resigned.
