President Donald Trump Got Impeached And President Jovenel Moise Is Next

Published

on

The U.S. President Donald Trump was indicted on Wednesday evening December 18 in a congressional vote synonymous with impeachment trials for the ex-businessman who immediately exposed “hatred” of Democrats.

The House of Representatives, dominated by Democrats, voted in favor of the “impeachment” of the 73-year-old Republican billionaire, after an acrimonious debate between two camps with irreconcilable views reflecting the deep divisions of the ‘America.

It will now be up to the Senate to judge Donald Trump, presumably in January. The Republicans, who control the upper house, have already warned that they have a firm intention to acquit their president.

In a spectacular telescoping, the decision fell at the same time as Donald Trump was in the gallery for a campaign meeting in Battle Creek, Michigan, about 1,000 km from Washington. Before leaving the White House, the latter had unleashed his anger on Twitter, claiming to have “NOTHING HAPPENED”, and denouncing “AN AGGRESSION AGAINST AMERICA”.

The 45th President of the United States, who intends to run for a second term in November 2020, was targeted by two indictments – abuse of power and obstruction of the proper functioning of Congress – because he asked Ukraine to investigate one of his potential presidential rivals and refused to participate in the impeachment investigation targeting him.


“Democrats in the House made Donald Trump the third President ever to be impeached, he lashed out at the widow of a former Congressman, we slowed Trump down for a new edition of #DrunkDonaldTrump, and seven nearly-forgotten Democrats took the stage here in Los Angeles for debate number six.”, said Jimmy Kimmel.

The Democrat-controlled House of Representatives adopted, with 230 votes for, 197 against and one abstention, on almost strictly partisan lines, the head of “abuse of power” against the Republican billionaire. And with 229 votes in favor, 198 against and one abstention, the second count.

The U.S. President Donald Trump and the President of Haiti Jovenel Moise are partners. What will Jovenel Moise say about this situation?.“, Said Werley Nortreus.

From 2011 to 2016, the Michel Martelly’s PHTK and his administration went on to embezzle, misspend, and misplace the lion’s share of the capital account known as the PetroCaribe Fund, which had basically kept Haiti afloat since its creation in 2008.

Michel Martelly also used the money to help his protégé, Jovenel Moïse, come to power on Feb. 7, 2017. Unfortunately for Moïse (having come to power just as Donald Trump did), he was about to become collateral damage in Washington’s escalating war against Venezuela.

Since when the U.S. is planning to put President Donald Trump out of the White House, the protesters in Haiti want to know when exactly President Jovenel Moise will be out of Haiti’s Palais National.

Preudhomme and wife will be buried on 21 January 2020

  • Preudhommes to be buried on 21 January 2020 at Dougaldston cemetery
  • Herbert acted as premier whenever Sir Eric was away on independence talks
  • Herbert was a founding member of Grenada United Labour Party

Herbert John Preudhomme, a former member of Parliament for the constituency of St John and his wife Joyce, who died days apart a few weeks ago, will both be buried on 21 January 2020 at the Dougaldston cemetery in Gouyave.

The Preudhommes were residing in the USA, and their bodies arrived in Grenada on Thursday, 16 January. Preudhomme on many occasions acted as premier during the struggle for Grenada to become an independent state and was appointed deputy prime minister in the first parliament after Grenada gained independent sovereignty from Great Britain on 7 February 1974.

Grenada before independence was an associated state and the Head of Government had the title of Premier. The premier at the time was Sir Eric Matthew Gairy and whenever he left the island for independence talks in the UK, Preudhomme acted until his return.

Preudhomme died on 2 January, six days short of his 90th birthday. He was one of the founding members of the Grenada United Labour Party (GULP) and his death has bought an end to an era of the founding executive members of the GULP. The party was removed from office by the 13 March 1979 overthrow of the Maurice Bishop-led People’s Revolutionary Government (PRG).

“Uncle Pre” as he was called, spent most of the revolutionary years as a political prisoner of the PRG, during which time Grenada’s independent constitution was suspended. When democracy was restored after the collapse of the revolution, Preudhomme contested various general elections but was never able to return to parliament. His last election as a candidate was the 2003 General Elections. The GULP is now a defunct political movement.

Gregory Bowen, Leader of Government Business in the current House of Representatives confirms that the former MP is qualified to receive a state-funded funeral. Bowen also confirmed that the upcoming sitting of the house will see members recognise the contribution of Preudhomme who served in different ministerial cabinet portfolios while he was a member.

His wife Joyce died on 26 December 2019 at the age of 84. The two celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary in October 2019. They are survived by four children, grand and great-grandchildren.
