Donald Trump, the 45th President of the United States, remains a prominent and influential figure in American politics and global news. As of my last update in September 2021, let’s delve into the latest news, developments, and key events surrounding Donald Trump.
1. Post-Presidential Activities
1.1 Social Media Presence
After being banned from major social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram in January 2021, Trump launched his own social media platform, “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump.” However, it’s important to note that his online presence was significantly reduced compared to his time in office.

Donald Trump faced impeachment twice during his presidency. The first impeachment, which concluded in February 2020, accused him of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress regarding his dealings with Ukraine. He was acquitted by the Senate, with most Republicans voting to acquit.
2.2 Second Impeachment (2021)
The second impeachment, in January 2021, charged Trump with “incitement of insurrection” following the storming of the U.S. Capitol by his supporters. Trump was impeached by the House of Representatives for a second time, making him the first U.S. president to be impeached twice. The Senate trial concluded after he had left office, resulting in acquittal.
3. Election Claims and the 2020 Presidential Election
One of the most controversial aspects of Trump’s post-presidential period was his consistent claim that the 2020 presidential election was “stolen” from him due to alleged voter fraud.
