650,000 Sign Petition To Impeach Trump As US President

Following the dissatisfaction over the emergence of Donald Trump, as the President of the United States, more than 650,000 Americans have reportedly signed a petition for his impeachment.

The online petition was signed to unseat the president, whose relationship with the general public has never been good, a US-based newspaper, Times is reporting.

According to the report, the online petition, spearheaded by two non-profit advocacy groups, Free Speech for People and Roots Action, was created the day Trump was inaugurated as President.

The report quoted the campaign as saying 655,363 signatures have been collected from Americans in a move to impeach the President.

Trump has issued a number of controversial executive orders, including immigration ban against people from seven Muslim-majority countries. This has been put on hold by a federal judge.

The report said the President’s approval rating is at a historic low level.

It noted that the US Congress would have to find him guilty of treason, bribery, or “other high crimes and misdemeanors” before his impeachment can be possible.

Times said the organizers are asking supporters to sign the petition in order to convince Congress to impeach the unpopular president.
