Eight days before the end of his term, US President Donald Trump confirmed that the chances of his removal from office are non-existent, calling in his first public tour since his supporters stormed the Congress headquarters for "peace" and "calm."
Trump said during his visit to the border city of Alamo in Texas that "the 25th amendment (of the constitution) does not pose any danger to me," referring to Democrats' calls for Vice President Mike Pence to follow the amendment text to remove Trump from office.
"It is time for our nation to recover, it is time for peace and tranquility," he added, adopting a tone completely opposite to the hard-line speech he gave to his supporters in Washington on January 6, just before some of them stormed the headquarters of Congress.
Trump, more isolated than ever, even inside his camp, could become the first American president twice launched measures to isolate him.
On Wednesday, the House of Representatives will debate the indictment before voting on it on the same day.
Trump had denounced, before heading to the Alamo on Tuesday, the isolation measures that might target him, describing them as "completely ridiculous" and causing "tremendous anger" throughout the United States.
In the midst of the turmoil in the final days of his term, Trump justified his speech to his supporters on that day as "completely appropriate", denouncing at the same time the "catastrophic mistake" of social media that decided to suspend his accounts.
On Monday evening, Trump met with his deputy, Mike Pence, who apparently decided to form a joint front with him, at the present time, against the Democrats, rejecting calls to remove him based on the 25th amendment stipulated in the constitution.
In Texas, Trump sang at length the wall he promised to build on the border with Mexico.
"I kept my promises," he said, regarding the construction of a 725 km wall.
But the "wonderful great wall" that Donald Trump promised in his 2016 campaign is still far from complete.
Of that total, only about twenty kilometers were built in an area that previously had no physical barrier. The rest of the wall is improvements or reinforcements to existing barriers.
Likewise, Mexico did not pay for the construction of the wall, as the real estate mogul promised.
Meanwhile, a measure continues in Washington that will go down in history, and may pawn Donald Trump's potential political future because he may become the first American president to twice face an impeachment text in Congress as part of an impeachment measure.
The text is expected to be adopted easily as it is supported by a large number of Democrats in the House of Representatives. This means opening a second impeachment measure against the US President.
But doubts remain surrounding the course and the outcome of the trial, which is supposed to take place later in the Senate, which is currently the majority Republic. The Democrats will take control of the House on January 20, but they will need to gather the votes of many Republicans in order to reach the two-thirds majority needed to convict the president.
And Trump's trial in the Senate would hinder the legislative work of the Democrats at the beginning of the Biden era, as the House would be limited to this issue.
President-elect Joe Biden will take the oath on January 20 to succeed Trump, at a ceremony in the outer courtyard of the Capitol building that houses the House and Senate that make up Congress.
The Pentagon announced Monday that it had authorized the deployment of 15,000 National Guard personnel during Biden's inauguration.
Biden called for the prosecution of all those involved in the "storming" of the Congress building last Wednesday, during acts of violence that left five people dead and shocked America and the world.
