Trump to watch impeachment on TV — and can’t tweet about it

US President Donald Trump has nothing on his schedule today as the US House of Representatives is set to impeach him for the second time in just over a year, according to US media reports. This time, however, the US president won’t be able to vent his frustration on Twitter, after being permanently banned from the social media platform following last week’s US Capitol riot.

CNN reports: “Aides expect Trump to mostly watch the proceedings on television throughout the day. But without Twitter, a campaign rally, a team of lawyers or Republicans willing to defend his actions, Trump is set to weather the historic shaming in subdued fashion.”
