A viral tweet claims that impeaching President Donald Trump for a second time would mean he would lose the ability to run for president in 2024.

Washington (CNN)A viral tweet claims that impeaching President Donald Trump for a second time would mean he would lose the ability to run for president in 2024.

1) Trump would lose his post-presidency pension only if both the House voted to impeach him and then the Senate voted to remove him from office; impeachment itself, without removal, would not result in Trump being denied any benefits.

2) The law makes clear that presidents who have lifetime Secret Service protection never get a $1 million travel allowance.

3) It is unclear that Trump would lose lifetime Secret Service protection even if the Senate voted to remove him and prohibit him from running.

Rather, under the Former Presidents Act, he would lose his pension only if the Senate voted to convict him and remove him from office.

Would Trump lose Secret Service protection if he was removed from office?

It is not clear which definition the federal government or the courts would use when it came to deciding whether an impeached and removed Trump should get lifetime Secret Service protection.
