Most U.S. officials, including diplomats, seek to hold outgoing President Donald J Trump responsible for planning to cling on to power by inciting riots and destruction at the U.S. Capitol Hill.
“What should happen right now is an emergency cabinet meeting to invoke the 25th Amendment and remove Donald Trump from office. Donald Trump has incited violence against the people’s representatives. Law and Order means no person, not even the President, is above the law,” said Joseph N. Sanberg, an American entrepreneur and founder of the California Earned Income Tax Credit (CalEITC).
On Wednesday, an angry mob mobilized by Trump stormed the Capitol Hill Building, leaving ugly pictures and trials of vandalism that tarnished the reputation of the United States, a country known for its belief in democracy and human rights.
As stipulated in the U.S. Constitution, the 25th Amendment, allows lawmakers to remove a president who is sick or otherwise unable to fulfill his or her duties.
U.S. presidents are limited under the Constitution to four-year terms that end on January 20 after an election year, however Trump wanted to overstay his term after failing to reach 280 votes in the recent US elections.
