Forty-fifth president, 2017–2021
Donald J. Trump was elected president of the United States after tapping into populist American sentiment. Having led a career in business and television, he created an identity that was antitraditional government and put forth an “America First” agenda. During his tenure, Trump appointed a record number of federal judges, including three Supreme Court justices. He brokered the Abraham Accords, significantly restricted immigration, and reduced government regulations. In February 2020, the unemployment rate was a record low at 3.5 percent. Throughout his term, he was impeached two times: the first on charges of abusing power and obstruction of Congress and the second for incitement of insurrection. He was acquitted by the Senate in both trials.
This photograph of Trump, from June 17, 2019, was taken on the day before he officially announced he would seek a second term. The beginning of the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), which resulted in a devastating loss of human lives and an economic crisis, became a key issue during his reelection campaign. More Americans voted in the 2020 presidential election than ever before, and the majority elected Joseph R. Biden Jr. Nevertheless, Trump did not concede, and a mob of his supporters, who refused to accept the results, attacked the U.S. Capitol complex on January 6, 2021, when Congress was working to certify Biden’s win.
45to presidente, 2017–2021
Donald J. Trump fue elegido presidente de Estados Unidos con el respaldo populista. Luego de hacer carrera en los negocios y la televisión, creó una identidad política que se oponía al gobierno tradicional y propugnaba la agenda de “Estados Unidos Primero”. Durante su administración, designó a un número sin precedentes de jueces federales, incluidos tres del Tribunal Supremo. Trump negoció los Acuerdos de Abraham, restringió significativamente la inmigración y redujo las regulaciones gubernamentales. En febrero de 2020, la tasa de desempleo alcanzó un mínimo histórico de 3.5 por ciento. A lo largo de su mandato, Trump fue sometido a juicio político dos veces: primero por abuso de poder y obstrucción del Congreso, y luego por incitar a la insurrección. El Senado lo absolvió en ambos casos.
Esta fotografía se tomó el 17 de junio de 2019, el día antes de que Trump anunciara su aspiración a un segundo mandato. El comienzo de la pandemia del coronavirus (COVID-19), que provocó devastadoras pérdidas de vidas y una crisis económica, fue un debate clave durante su campaña de reelección. En la elección presidencial de 2020 votaron más ciudadanos que nunca, y la mayoría eligió a Joseph R. Biden Jr. Sin embargo, Trump no admitió su derrota y una turba de sus seguidores, opuestos a los resultados, atacó el Capitolio de la nación el 6 de enero de 2021, cuando el Congreso trabajaba para certificar la victoria de Biden.
