FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) -- President Donald Trump makes history to be the first president to ever be impeached, twice. Some Fort Wayne residents are saying it’s about time, and others saying we’re focusing on the wrong things.
Rob Majors is one of the people who believe Americans need to heal and move on.
Majors says, “Everybody just needs to get past this and move on. We’re moving over to a new president. I feel too much time has been spent on this and we need to heal.”
Hailey Dunlap of Fort Wayne says impeaching President Trump would only divide the country more than it already is.
Dunlap says, “We need to be coming together as people.”
Elaine Gres says Trump needs to be held accountable. She says, “I believe that he should be impeached a never hold office again.”
Gres believes Trump is unfit to be the leader of the country and is completely responsible for the riot on Capitol Hill.
Gres adds, “What he told them to do is exactly. They felt like they were representing the President and it was wrong.”
Majors says although the attack on Capitol Hill was sickening, people should focus on the bigger issue, keeping Hoosiers in Northeast Indiana safe and stopping the spread of the coronavirus.
Majors adds, “Everybody is forgetting that everyone was together and half of those people weren’t wearing masks. It’s just ashamed.”
The article of Impeachment now goes to the Senate, where Majority leader Mitch McConnell has made clear, a trial won’t start until President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in.
