The Senate acquitted Trump, but the markets will await his acquittal in November

6 Feb 2020 01:53 PM

In an expected move yesterday evening the congress acquitted US President, Donald Trump from impeachment of abusive power and obstruction of the house, but in fact the end of the story will be in November when voters go to the polls.

Opinion polls indicate that Trump has little political harm, and Trump's lawyers have argued that with elections approaching nine months from now, voters should be left to make a final ruling on whether Trump has abused his position by pressuring Ukraine to investigate a democratic political rival, Joe Biden.

Trump raised millions of dollars for his re-election campaign after the dismissal trial and earned $ 46 million in the last quarter of 2019 in the most profitable period of his re-election campaign. Republican officials said the money raised during the impeachment investigation was mostly from their supporters, angry at democratic efforts to oust him from office.
