The elections saw incumbent President Donald Trump lose out to Democrat rival Joe Biden, among unverified claims of electoral fraud and tampering.
The year 2020 has also brought the UK closer to Brexit than ever before, with the Brexit transition period finally ending with the new year.
With the new year 2021, take a look at some correct predictions psychic Craig Hamilton-Parker of Psychics.co.uk made about 2020.
1. Donald Trump survived an impeachment effort
Speaking to Express.co.uk in 2019, Mr Hamilton-Parker predicted the US President would face an impeachment trial.
However, the psychic said at the time Mr Trump would not be removed from office.
Instead, he predicted: “Impeachment will empower Trump. He claims a deep-state Coup d’état.”
The impeachment process was initiated on December 18, 2019, and concluded by February 2020.
The US House of Representatives found President Trump guilty of “abuse of power” by 230 votes to 197.
The case against the President alleged he had solicited foreign interference in the 2020 election.
However, the President was acquitted of the charges by the US Senate by 52 “not guilty” votes against “48 guilty votes”.
2. Donald Trump would fall ill in 2020
Mr Hamilton-Parker predicted in 2019 that the US President would suffer an illness.
He said: “He will have a stomach problem that will temporarily interrupt his.”
However, what happened instead, was Mr Trump contracted the coronavirus in October.
The President was hospitalised on October 2 and treated with remdesivir and dexamethasone, as well as an experimental antibody treatment made by Regeneron.
Mr Trump was discharged from hospital by October 5 although his doctor said at the time he was not quite out of the woods yet.
Days after being taken to hospital, Mr Trump tweeted: “Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life.
“We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs and knowledge. I feel better than I did 20 years ago.”
3. Boris Johnson’s handling of Brexit and foreign trade
Project Fear has assured Brexit would be an economic disaster for the UK, the likes of which has not been seen in decades.
Mr Hamilton-Parker, however, was positive the UK would secure strong deals that would allow the nation to thrive outside of the EU.
He predicted new trade deals with India, Taiwan and Japan, as well as “hard-ish Brexit”.
In October, the Government confirmed it had signed a free trade agreement with Japan – the UK’s first major trade deal as an independent nation.
International Trade Secretary Liz Truss said: “Today is a landmark moment for Britain. It shows what we can do as an independent trading nation, as we secure modern and bespoke provisions in areas like tech and services that are critical to the future of our country and the reshaping of our economy.”
Predictions for 2021: Brexit prosperity and new virus emerges
Speaking of 2021, Mr Hamilton-Parker told Express.co.uk the UK will prosper in the days after leaving the EU.
Free trade zones will be established to attract business from companies such as Google and Facebook, and although he thinks there will be dip immediately after departure, the economy will “recover in leaps”.
The psychic said: “Within three years, the UK economy will boom.”
However, with the world still reeling from the coronavirus pandemic, Mr Hamilton-Parker predicts another virus will emerge in the new year.
He believes this virus will also emerge in China although this time around it will be dealt with.
The psychic said: “A new and different virus, that’s unrelated to COVID-19, will appear in China.”
He added: “In the aftermath of the virus, more people will turn to spiritual ways of thinking.
“We will question the selfishness ingrained in our societies and address the problems of waste and greed that threaten the world’s future.”
