The 25th Amendment Could Rid America Of Trump

“In light of the wild, weird press conference Donald Trump held Thursday, it might be time, rather than calling for impeachment, to discuss another course: invocation of the 25th amendment.

 

The 25th amendment was ratified in 1967 after Kennedy’s assassination and permits a president to appoint a vice-president when the position becomes vacant. However, other elements of the amendment aren’t widely known, chiefly transfer of power to the vice president when either the president requests it, as in a health crisis, and also if our nation’s leaders determine he’s unfit.

 

If the vice president and cabinet department heads notify the House Speaker and Senate President Pro Tempore that the president ain’t himself he’ll be removed until the president attempts to reinstate himself and it’s agreed that he may do so.”
