Impeachment of a U.S. president does not mean an immediate ouster from office, or as House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi put it on Wednesday, a "bye, bye birdie."

Speaker Pelosi responded to Trump’s outburst on national television by telling the country that Trump wasn’t up to the challenge of an infrastructure deal.
