The United States' president-elect, Joe Biden, has reacted to the impeachment of the outgoing president, Donald Trump.
Trump was on Wednesday, January 13, impeached for the second time after he incited his followers to attack the Capitol in an effort to stop the certification of Biden's presidential election win.
Reacting on Wednesday, January 14, Biden noted that after Trump's impeachment by the House of Representatives, the process of removing him from office will continue at the Senate.
The incoming US president expressed hope that the Senate will complete the process of convicting and removing Trump while it also works on other "urgent business of this nation".
Americans react to Joe Biden's tweet
Kilroy Jones, @kilroyjones1, said on Twitter:
"Sir, even though you are not the president yet; due to the dereliction and treason of our current president, you are by default the current President of the United States. Lead us and we will follow, Sir. Signed the American people."
Sandy Razo, @sandyrazo1964, said:
"It should not take more than a day to present enough evidence at the Impeachment Trial to convict Trump! I’ve been patiently awaiting the end of his term, please be patient during the beginning of yours. Justice MUST prevail regardless of timeline!"
Eboigbe Basil, MSC, @BEboigbe, said:
"I dont expect you saying all these. You ought to give PEACE a chance. Trump just have less than 10days in office and yet you guys want to disgrace him. Think about it."
Forbestonow, @forbestonow, said:
"And in one week's time America will get a President who can do his job because he is not spending all his time on Twitter, or stewing about not being able to spend all his time on Twitter.
"Good luck @JoeBiden"
Jay, @jaythebakerbear, said:
"This impeachment is urgent business too. This doesn’t end just because you will be POTUS. Accountability must take place."
Similarly, President Trump has spoken after his second impeachment by the United States' House of Reps.
The US president, however, ignored his impeachment in the speech as he focused only on the violence at the US Capitol.
Trump said he condemned the violence, adding that such an incident does not have a place in the US and in his political movement.
Meanwhile, with the second impeachment of President Trump, many people have taken to social media to react to the development.
In some of the comments sighted by Legit.ng, the impeachment was met with diverse reactions from Americans and people from other nations as well.
While some people are openly jubilating the stain on the president's legacy, others are not happy that Trump was made to hold such an embarrassing record of being the only president in the history of America to get himself impeached twice.
