U.S. House of Representatives
Extremely anti-Trump, in May 2017 Amash became the first politician of the GOP which called an impeachment against the President Donald Trump, which attracted virtually no support.  On Independence Day 2019, Amash announced he would leave the Republican Party because of its leadership by President Trump. He later voted along with House Democrats in favor of impeaching Trump.

After having joined the Libertarian Party in April 2020, Amash announced an exploratory committee in seeking the party's nomination to for the 2020 U.S. presidential election. However, less than a month later, he dropped his campaign.
