Should Trump be removed from office?

President Donald J. Trump will be going on trial in the Senate as part of impeachment proceedings. Since Republicans control the Senate, it's highly unlikely that Democrats would be able to secure the number of votes they'd need to convict or remove Trump from office. Trump's supporters think he's doing a great job. The economy is going strong—unemployment keeps going down despite what economists said. The stock market keeps making gains even though there's a trade war with China. His supporters think Trump is a great president.

That hasn't stopped many Americans from hoping Trump will be removed from office in the impeachment process anyway. They argue Trump is unfit for office. His actions are damaging America's reputation and position in the world. His administration is racist, incompetent and corrupt.

It's clear Trump is using the presidency to his own personal benefit, politically and financially. The reason why Trump is being impeached is that he was caught trying to sabotage Joe Biden's 2020 campaign. The only reason it didn't work is that he was caught. Impeaching Trump without removing him is just a slap on the wrist. He would still be able to use the powers of the presidency to cheat in the 2020 election. 

Here's how R.J. Lyman at The Bulwark puts it:

Trump should be removed and disqualified from office for the precise set of reasons our Constitution’s Framers created this extraordinary process: As he has told us repeatedly, he will seek and use information from foreign governments and agents to pervert our next presidential election to his personal, political, and pecuniary benefit.

Removing Trump is essential if we want to maintain the integrity of our elections and institutions.

The likelihood that Trump will be removed from the Presidency is next to nothing. Republicans argue the case Democrats have put forward is rushed and flimsy. McConnell said he'll be coordinating with the White House and will make sure things end quickly and smoothly for Trump so things can go back to business as usual. There's policy to be made, after all.  

“The case is so darn weak coming from the House,” McConnell said in an interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News on Thursday night, as the House Judiciary Committee continued to debate articles of impeachment. “We know how it's going to end. There's no chance the president's going to be removed from office.”
“My hope is that there won't be a single Republican who votes for either of these articles of impeachment, and Sean, it wouldn't surprise me if we got one or two Democrats,” McConnell continued.

Republicans argue Democrats are wasting their time with impeachment. It's a political attack at the core of it all.
