Donald Trump gives a thumbs-up after a meeting with Mitt Romney over a possible appointment as Secretary of State, November 2016
I joined talkRADIO’s Julia Hartley-Brewer to review the twist in the Trump impeachment trial, with Republican Sen. Mitt Romney joining Democrats in the vote to convict Trump of abuse of power, and to look ahead to November’s US elections.
Along the way, we dispel myths such as a surge in support of Trump during the impeachment process, and the inability of any Democrat nominee to challenge him for the White House.
An extract from the discussion:
Donald Trump has been acquitted of all impeachment charges and will remain in office.

“Don’t Fall for the Hype”
On Wednesday, just before Romney’s statement, I chatted with talkRADIO’s Eamonn Holmes about the changing political situation amid the trial, Trump’s State of the Union, and the Democratic Presidential caucuses in Iowa.
Trump is trying to whip up this spectre that he has rescued America. We’re back in Wizard of Oz land: can he keep the curtain drawn until November? Or is someone going to pull it back and say “Not for Hype, Not for A Spectacle”, but for a discussion of climate change, health care, the economy, foreign policy, education, all those issues.
