President Joe Biden said on Tuesday that he's not tuning in to Trump's impeachment trial.

The Senate began the impeachment trial on Tuesday.

President Joe Biden said that he won't be watching former President Donald Trump's impeachment trial, which started in the Senate Tuesday and will likely continue throughout the week.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki reiterated Biden's priorities on Tuesday and would not say whether the president believes the impeachment trial is constitutional.

Every Democratic senator and 17 Republicans would need to vote "yes" in order for Trump to be convicted in his second impeachment trial.

The trial is likely to end in Trump's acquittal, as a majority of GOP members have previously said they do not support his impeachment. »
