Donald Trump's presidency is ending a lot like Andrew Johnson's

That's not the only similarity.Nearly a century and a half later, we face similar regional, political and cultural divisions.

The former secretary of Homeland Security called on social media to improve its policing of political content, as polls indicate a majority of Republicans falsely believe that President-elect Joe Biden was not legitimately elected to take office this week.

Biden will be inaugurated on Wednesday, two weeks after pro-Trump rioters raided the Capitol building to attempt to stop Congress from certifying the president-elect's Electoral College win.

The riots forced lawmakers to flee to secure locations and the chambers to halt the Electoral College debate, although lawmakers certified the results hours after law enforcement secured the Capitol. Five people, including a Capitol Police officer, died as a result of the raid.

The House impeached Trump last week on the charge that he incited the mob at the Capitol after calling on protests to march to the Capitol, "show strength" and "fight like hell" or "you're not going to have a country anymore."
