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.

Statement from Donald J. Trump

November 7, 2020 (Thessherald)– “We all know why Joe Biden is rushing to falsely pose as the winner, and why his media allies are trying so hard to help him: they don’t want the truth to be exposed. The simple fact is this election is far from over.

Joe Biden has not been certified as the winner of any states, let alone any of the highly contested states headed for mandatory recounts, or states where our campaign has valid and legitimate legal challenges that could determine the ultimate victor. In Pennsylvania, for example, our legal observers were not permitted meaningful access to watch the counting process. Legal votes decide who is president, not the news media.

“Beginning Monday, our campaign will start prosecuting our case in court to ensure election laws are fully upheld and the rightful winner is seated. The American People are entitled to an honest election: that means counting all legal ballots, and not counting any illegal ballots.

This is the only way to ensure the public has full confidence in our election. It remains shocking that the Biden campaign refuses to agree with this basic principle and wants ballots counted even if they are fraudulent, manufactured, or cast by ineligible or deceased voters. Only a party engaged in wrongdoing would unlawfully keep observers out of the count room- and then fight in court to block their access.

“So what is Biden hiding? I will not rest until the American People have the honest vote count they deserve and that Democracy demands.”
