FOR Democrats

The Senate has the power to try the impeachment, and the Senate acquitted President Trump on both articles of impeachment on Wednesday, February 5, 2020. Conviction in the Senate requires a two-thirds supermajority vote of those present. The result of conviction is removal from office.

FOR

Diversity

Diversity refers to differences in racial or ethnic classifications, age, gender, religion, philosophy, physical abilities, socioeconomic background, sexual orientation, or any other distinguishing factor. Most politicians are in favor of diversity. They differ on whether diversity should be legislated.

DETAILS:

AGAINST Republicans

They also feel the focus on diversity creates divisive labels rather than an inclusive atmosphere. source

FOR Democrats

Democrats back the bill to repeal wealthy business tax cuts to fund proactive measures like education and a diverse resume pool that businesses can use to find qualified and diversified candidates. source
