I looked up the hashtag #HistoryWillRememberDonaldTrump as the relevant discussion as his impeachment stays a national current news topic. This hashtag was also on the trending page on 11/19/19. Here are the following 6 tweets.
Most of these tweets fall into the same category: those in support of his impeachment. I found two tweets that show support towards Donal Trump, which has proven in the past to be risky when discussing support towards the President on a social platform through the current times. This shows that the opinion about our current President is still divided in the country, and even though his secrets and scandals have been exposed and covered by the press, some choose to stick by him while others show their support towards impeachment. Personal opinions aside, those who seem to support him stick to the facts, while those who long for impeachment look beyond the facts and more towards his character and his actions and behaviors on top of what he hasn’t done for our country and the negativity he has brought to the image of our country.
