– Few days to handing over to Joe Biden, President Trump may be removed from office
– This is as some of the president’s cabinet members are considering invoking the 25th Amendment following the violence unleashed by Trump’s supporters
– Emboldened by Trump’s baseless allegations, his supporters invaded the US Capitol and disrupted the certification of the electoral votes
Donald Trump may be removed from office as the United States president a few weeks to the end of his tenure, following the invasion of the US Capitol on Wednesday, January 6, by his supporters.
According to ABC News, some members of President Trump’s cabinet have been discussing the possibility of invoking the 25th Amendment.
The news media, however, stated that it is unclear if Vice President Mike Pence is supportive of the action.
According to CNN, the 25th Amendment is another constitutional means of removing a US president, apart from impeachment through the legislature.
To remove the president through the 25th Amendment, the vice president would have to be on board, CNN explained.

In what has left many Americans horrified, President Trump’s supporters invaded the US Capitol and disrupted the certification of Joe Biden’s victory which was being presided over by the vice president.
It was believed that President Trump’s insistence that the US election was fraudulent without any evidence and his unguarded rhetorics encouraged his supporters to stage the riot at the Capitol which led to the temporary evacuation of Pence and US lawmakers.
In another report, President Trump pressured Georgia’s Republican secretary of state, Brad Raffensperger to “find” enough votes to overturn Biden’s win in the state’s presidential election.
According to the report, Trump repeatedly cited disproven claims of fraud and raising the prospect of “criminal offense” if officials did not change the vote count.
The report stated that the US president’s conversation with the official was recorded and has now been released.
