Welcome to LNGenZ’s roundup of the trending topics in the news this week.

Will President Trump Be Impeached?

There has been a lot of talk in the news of impeaching President Donald Trump. Democrats in Congress – especially in the House of Representatives – have been talking about impeaching him since he first took office, but why? Will the House actually impeach Trump this time, and if so, what will happen?

The United States Constitution gives a process for removing a president who has broken the law, but impeachment is just the first step.

To begin the process, the House Judiciary Committee must decide there is enough evidence to impeach, then draft Articles of Impeachment. If the Judiciary Committee decides to impeach, the whole House of Representatives then votes on it. When more than half of members of the House of Representatives agree, then the president is considered impeached. This is just the formal charge against the president. Three out of 45 presidents have so far faced impeachment charges.

Saudi Arabia Opens to Tourists

In September 2019, the kingdom of Saudi Arabia started a new visa program that will allow visitors from 49 countries to enter. Until then, most of the visas, which grant people from other countries the privilege to visit, were given to business travelers and Muslim pilgrims. The pilgrims had to get special permission to visit the holy cities of Mecca and Medina. Other tourists will still find it hard to visit these holy places because few people get permission.

Saudi Arabia is known for its strict dress code and rules of behavior, especially for women. The new laws will be more relaxed. Before the new traveling laws, men and women could not be together in public places and women were required to wear the all-covering black robes known as “abayas.” Even though the new laws won’t be as strict, women must still dress modestly, and alcohol is illegal.
