President Trump is heading to Camp David to hide away from the public and media as he faces intense outrage from all sides and calls for his removal after he incited a riot that ended with four people dead. Now the future of Trump and his family is in question as he tries to hold on to his presidency for its remaining thirteen days. If impeached, he would be ineligible for public office in the future, ruling out a 2024 run, though many say another impeachment is unlikely.
Presidential historian Michael Beschloss joins Andrea Mitchell to discuss the nature of President Trump's final days as he prepares to leave office. He compares the President's unwillingness to concede the 2020 election to Al Gore's concession in 2000 after the Supreme Court ruling, adding, 'That's what most patriots do.' Aired on 12/28/2020. Donald Trump is leaving office next week as the only U.S president to be impeached twice.
The House of Representatives charged him with inciting an insurrection.
Trump is accused of encouraging supporters to storm the Capitol last week to try and overturn Joe Biden's election win.
10 Republicans broke ranks to vote for impeachment, revealing cracks in a party that has largely stood by the President for the past four years.
So what happens now?
