What was Donald Trump's role in reality TV?

Donald Trump served as an executive producer and starred in the reality TV show "The Apprentice," which first aired in 2004. The show was an instant hit for NBC, featuring aspiring entrepreneurs competing for Trump's approval and the chance to work for his organization.

How did Trump plan to address the issue of immigration?

Trump's approach to immigration was largely framed by a desire to curb illegal immigration. To that end, he launched initiatives such as building a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, implementing tougher deportation policies, and restricting travel from certain nations. He also aimed to move towards a "merit-based" immigration system, favoring applicants who have demonstrated certain skills or achievements.

Can you detail Donald Trump's impeachment trials?

Yes, Donald Trump faced impeachment trials twice during his term as President of the United States.

The first impeachment took place in 2019. The House of Representatives, led by the Democratic Party, impeached Trump in December 2019 over charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. The allegations stemmed from a phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. In the call, Trump seemed to pressure Zelensky to investigate Joe Biden, his political rival, and his son Hunter Biden in relation to their activities in Ukraine. He allegedly withheld military aid to Ukraine as a form of leverage. However, the Senate, then controlled by the Republican Party, acquitted Trump of the charges in February 2020.

Trump faced the second impeachment following the Capitol attack on January 6, 2021. He was charged with "incitement of insurrection" after a speech he made to his supporters, which investigators said encouraged violence at the Capitol. Trump was impeached by the House on January 13, 2021, making him the first president in U.S history to be impeached twice. The trial moved to the Senate and resulted in acquittal on February 13, 2021. While 57 Senators, including seven Republicans, voted to convict Trump, this fell short of the two-thirds majority required for conviction.

During both impeachment trials, Trump and his legal team refuted the charges, contesting the legality and validity of the allegations.
