Presidents, Vice Presidents and all members of the federal government—whether elected or hired—take an oath of office before beginning the job. The presidential oath states:

"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

Former Vice President Joe Biden said Wednesday that President Donald Trump betrayed that oath and must be impeached. Biden had previously not stated a call for impeachment.


Biden stated:

"Donald Trump has violated his oath of office, betrayed this nation and committed impeachable acts. He should be impeached."

Watch his remarks here.

As Biden made his call for impeachment, the current resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue was watching. President Trump made his displeasure known on Twitter.

The President posted:

"So pathetic to see Sleepy Joe Biden, who with his son, Hunter, and to the detriment of the American Taxpayer, has ripped off at least two countries for millions of dollars, calling for my impeachment - and I did nothing wrong. Joe’s Failing Campaign gave him no other choice!"

But Biden was far from asleep at the keyboard and quickly quipped back.

Biden tweeted:

"Thanks for watching. Stop stonewalling the Congress. Honor your oath. Respect the Constitution."

The former VP added:

"And speaking of taxpayers, I’ve released 21 years of my tax returns. You?"

The President—with help from Attorney General William Barr's Justice Department is currently fighting a losing battle against New York prosecutors over his tax returns.

People did not pull punches in their responses to the President.

And while President Trump was talking about Biden's son, people thought Trump might be in need of a little self-reflection.

Others felt maybe the POTUS should manage his time a little more wisely.

Like keeping tabs on Turkey after handing off Syria.

President Trump's actions in regards to Syria, Turkey and the Kurds put him in the rare position of receiving criticism from people like Pat Robertson, Senator Lindsey Graham and Representative Liz Cheney.

As of Wednesday, October 9, the 2020 presidential election is 390 days away. Who squares off on the ballot remains to be seen.

Former Republican Congressman and current host of MSNBC's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough, left the Republican party in July of 2017—around six months after the inauguration of President Donald Trump.

Since then, he's used his show to call out the President's (16,000+ and counting) lies—and Tuesday night was no different.

After weeks of enduring the impeachment trial against him in the Senate, President Donald Trump was likely grateful to be in a venue filled with people willing to praise him.

The President spoke at a rally in Wildwood, New Jersey, but at multiple points during the speech, his words got ahead of his thoughts.

At one point, Fox News—which was covering the event—decided to cut away, amid stifled laughter from the hosts.

The United States, unlike North Korea and other nations President Donald Trump admires, does not have an official state media channel where the federal government can push propaganda.
