Ricky Collado, Film & Television Studies, Democrat

“I believe that Trump should be removed from the office. He has admitted on national television to seeking information from Russia and said that there is nothing wrong with listening to them if they had something against Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden. Also there are credible sources that say they have information that Trump was withholding funds from Ukraine in exchange for them providing damaging information for his rivals. Trump has also shown complete disregard of the Senate and House of Representatives as a whole.”

Erica Bravo, Nursing, Democrat

“I believe that the impeachment of Trump is a waste of time. This should have occurred sooner. At this point is seems pointless. His term is coming to an end. Also the process of impeachment is very expensive. Money that could have been used for other resources. To my awareness I believe Trump has NOT broken any laws or made unconstitutional moves. However I do believe he has bad intentions and is not a good president.”

“That’s all? Well I think that his arrogance is going to be his downfall. They say that the thing that brings you up will eventually bring you down.”

Minerva Garcia, 28, Sociology Major and Psychology Minor

“I think that it’s a good thing that we caught him doing that and it’s a good thing that we even started the impeachment for him because it just shows that he might not have won the first election fairly.”

Lisa Giraldo, 21, Anthropology Major

“Yes I think that it is a good reason because it shows that he does not follow the political process.”

President Trump tried to pressure Ukraine to dig up dirt on his political rivals by halting aid. Do you think that this is a good reason for his removal from office?

Amari Alaskry, Psychology, 52

“No. I don’t think he should be removed. It would have consequences to the economy, government and nation. He did good things: fought against terrorism, ordered the killing of the ISIS leaders, helped bring stability to the Middle-East. He did good things and did not send the country to war. More countries respect the US more. Very recently he released the Middle-East ‘Peace Plan’ which is supposed to stabilize the Arab world.”
