One thing that Donald Trump is good at is drawing all the attention towards himself. In a normal post-election year, the focus of politics would be on the incoming new President. This year the focus remains on Trump.
A second impeachment is under way:
“On Monday, lawmakers introduced an impeachment article charging Trump with “high crimes and misdemeanors by inciting violence against the government of the United States” and thus having violated his oath of office.The House will debate the charge on Wednesday. The Democratic congressman David Cicilline of Rhode Island, one of the Democrats leading the effort, tweeted that the party had sufficient votes to pass it and impeach Trump a second time – a first in American history. But for him to be removed would require conviction in the Senate.”https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/jan/11/trump-impeachment-house-democrats-charge-president-with-incitement-of-insurrection
The timing means that the Senate won’t be able to consider the issue until after Joe Biden is inaugurated, so the impeachment can’t get Trump out of the Whitehouse any quicker. However, it would be absurd for Congress not to act in the wake of the physical attack on the Capitol by the President’s supporters.
While the second impeachment can only have a symbolic impact on Trump, events have precipitated more direct impacts on him. Deutsche Bank have announced they will no longer do business with the Trump Organisation:
“Deutsche Bank has been Trump’s most important lender. The Trump Organization, fronted by his two older sons, owes the bank about $340m in outstanding loans. After a series of bankruptcies in the 1990s, it was the only bank willing to give Trump money.”https://www.theguardian.com/business/2021/jan/12/deutsche-bank-severs-ties-with-donald-trump
Corporate donations to the Republican Party have also been impacted by the Capitol riot:
“Republicans who voted to block Joe Biden’s confirmation as president have been deserted by some of the biggest corporations in the US, as some leading rightwing politicians begin to face potential consequences for the Capitol riot on Wednesday. A slew of companies, including Citigroup, one of the biggest banks in the US, and the Marriott hotel chain, said they would halt donations to Republicans who voted against certifying the results of the presidential election.”https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/jan/12/us-companies-political-funding-republicans-capitol-riot
This is not corporations suddenly grasping that Donald Trump is a bad man or that the GOP is unethical but rather the more basic truth that civil strife is bad for business. Wall Street might like lower taxes but are less keen on civil war.
But, as they say, we are not out of the woods yet.
