Delaware Voters React to President Trump's Future in Office

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del.- The House of Representatives approved two articles of impeachment against President Trump, making him the third president in history to face removal by the Senate. Some Delaware voters are anxiously waiting to see if the Senate will remove President Trump from office, while others are waiting to re-elect him for another term.

After a historic impeachment in the House of Representatives, it remains at a standoff. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she may not immediately pass the articles to the Senate. Pelosi said she has concerns about the political bias. 

Barbara Orlando was having breakfast the morning after the House of Representatives impeached President Trump. Orlando aid she believes Trump is not cut out for the job, 

"There are a long list history on his behavior, I mean, clearly we had  other articulate, caring people in this country. I think that having this person to represent us nationally and worldwide is really sad," said Orlando.

While in Dover, Trump's Delaware Campaign Head Rob Arlett was joined by supporters at the Governor's Department of Elections. They filed the first batch of paperwork for President Trump to appear on the first state's ballot in 2020.

"President Trump is so focused on getting results for the American people and for people in Delaware," said Arlett. 

Others in Sussex County said they are hoping President Trump will be removed from office. 

"I would hope when they go to the Senate, I hope they look at a two party system. If an impeachment is to happen in the Senate, I hope it will take place," said Margaret Saul.

Rob Arlett said he questions why the House of Representatives announced a potential delay in passing the articles of impeachment.

"I think they are fearful of the president and of the American people," said Arlett.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she wants assurance about how the trial would proceed in the Senate, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell denounced the case. McConell said Pelosi "gave in to a temptation" and that the House impeached Trump "simply because they disagree with a presidential act."
