Trump's Presidency

Impeachment or Resignation?

Published

[yt_dropcap type=”square” font=”” size=”14″ color=”#000″ background=”#fff” ] T [/yt_dropcap]here is money being placed on the table on bets on Trump’s Presidency. This comes as no great surprise, given its surreal, circus-like, reality-show, unhinged style.

The betting odds indicate that Trump will likely be removed from office in the first term. What powerfully supports those odds are the following incontrovertible facts: Trump has been mired in controversy from day one of his presidency, there is presently an ongoing FBI investigation into his campaign’s ties to Russia, a spate of controversial executive orders on travel bans for Muslims, the repeal of dozens of financial and federal regulations signed by former President Barack Obama. All of this within his first two months in office.

At the Ladbrokes betting house in the UK, for instance, the odds of Trump’s impeachment have gone from half to 10/11 and people continue to place odds on Trump’s removal. The flood shows no signs of slowing down. The betting house has taken five times the amount of bets that Trump will not see his full term vs. him completing it. The chances of him completing the term are, as of now, predicted to be slim to none.

The Senate is the body with the power to impeach a president. The charges have to be serious, ranging from treason, to bribery, conflicts of interest or other unspecified crimes and misdemeanors. Will Trump succeed in bringing about his own removal? Given the track record, I’d be willing to wager on it.

Professor Paparella has earned a Ph.D. in Italian Humanism, with a dissertation on the philosopher of history Giambattista Vico, from Yale University. He is a scholar interested in current relevant philosophical, political and cultural issues; the author of numerous essays and books on the EU cultural identity among which A New Europe in search of its Soul, and Europa: An Idea and a Journey. Presently he teaches philosophy and humanities at Barry University, Miami, Florida. He is a prolific writer and has written hundreds of essays for both traditional academic and on-line magazines among which Metanexus and Ovi. One of his current works in progress is a book dealing with the issue of cultural identity within the phenomenon of “the neo-immigrant” exhibited by an international global economy strong on positivism and utilitarianism and weak on humanism and ideals.
