Biden should let bygones be bygones and stop the second impeachment move against Trump forthwith. Today, America needs to move in a progressive direction and should not get bogged down in scenes of confrontation and conflict.

All said and done, history will note that during the four years of the Trump administration, on several occasions, Trump was ridiculed, abused, and criticized by a large section of US media, his sworn critics, and members of the democratic party. More than that, he was also impeached once and thus humiliated.

In the process, all the good steps that Trump took did not receive the type of attention that they should have received. Certainly, Trump has significant credits to claim. In spite of the vociferous anti-Trump campaign, the fact is that many Americans should have felt that Trump was more sinned against than sinning. This is clearly revealed by the fact that millions of people in America have voted for Trump in the recent Presidential election.

Of course, Trump’s refusal to accept the verdict gracefully and the riots on Capitol Hill brought him a bad name.

In any case, the era of Trump is now over. But, his adversaries do not seem to be satisfied with one impeachment that they imposed on Trump and the fact he has lost the election. It appears that they want to carry on with the anti-Trump crusade with one more impeachment.

The task before Biden was easy till such time that he became the President of the USA when he was only critical. Now, the ball is in Biden’s court and he has to prove himself.

One hopes that Biden would be able to ensure that hatred and animosity amongst the various sections of people in the USA would be wiped out and a sense of solidarity would be brought in. This is the uppermost challenge facing Biden.

To enable Biden to be successful in this challenging task, he needs the support of every section of society. Biden said during his swearing-in ceremony that he would be the President for all. While this is a refreshing and welcome statement, he has to walk the talk.

The impeachment move against Trump for the second time would certainly lead to bad blood, particularly since millions of Americans who voted for Trump would not be happy about his second impeachment move. Should Biden unwittingly facilitate such a negative trend?

Biden may have contempt for Trump for whatever reasons which he has not concealed. However, it is high time that Biden should exhibit the quality of statesmanship by not persisting with the old themes. He should refrain from keeping the focus of America on Trump, which will lead to an unending debate on whether the impeachment move would be right or wrong. What is important is to avoid a situation where arguments and counter-arguments would take place, which would inevitably lead to more bitterness and divisive attitude and weaken America.

Biden should let bygones be bygones and stop the second impeachment move against Trump forthwith. Today, America needs to move in a progressive direction and should not get bogged down in scenes of confrontation and conflict.

The second impeachment move may give vicarious satisfaction to the sworn critics of Trump but will effectively divert national attention in a counter-productive direction.

Biden is a person with enormous experience as a senator and Vice President for two terms earlier. He should know better and understand that persisting with a vengeful attitude in the administration would do enormous damage not only to the mindset of Americans but also bring ridicule for America in the world.

Let Biden’s administration and his democratic party stop focusing on Trump by constantly criticizing him and highlighting his negatives.

America needs to be healed now, which is entirely in the hands of Biden. The country cries for a farsighted leader who would not persist with the past but look ahead with vision. Biden would be wasting his time and that of America, if he would not stop the second impeachment move against Trump.
