- San Francisco billionaire impeachment activist Tom Steyer announced from Iowa on Wednesday that he will not run for president in 2020 and instead will focus all of his efforts on impeaching President Donald Trump.

Adviser Aleigha (ah-LEE'-ah) Cavalier confirmed the decision Wednesday afternoon, shortly before Steyer was due to speak at an event in Des Moines, Iowa.

"The impeachment question has reached an inflection point".

Steyer plans to spend $40 million (31.3 million pounds) this year to pressure the U.S. House of Representatives, which Democrats won control of in the November 2018 elections, to begin impeachment proceedings, and to encourage Democrats vying for the White House to support Trump's impeachment. "That's why I just announced that I will be dedicating 100% of my time and effort in 2019 towards Mr. Trump's impeachment and removal from office".

Some of his money has gone to his Need to Impeach campaign against Trump. Over the course of his campaign, Steyer has amassed a valuable political asset: a list of almost 7 million people who have signed on to his impeachment effort.

Although Steyer's call for impeachment comes as House Democrats have taken the majority, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said that the House shouldn't move to impeach Trump without more facts and that the effort would be divisive.

"What I took from that trip was, if you see something really wrong, if you see someone who is doing something consistently wrong, that is wicked, that is against the values of society, you have to fight it the first day, the second day, the third day", he said.

Steyer added that Congress has a constitutional obligation "to end this shameful presidency" and he is asking that they put aside their political considerations.

In recent years, he's sought to make himself the face of the anti-Trump resistance by funding and starring in television commercials calling for the President's impeachment and staging dozens of town hall meetings. He creates crises to remain in power. "And whether it's better to abandon this disaster of a president or to support him", Steyer said.

"Most people come to Iowa around this time to announce a campaign for the presidency", he said.
