Nancy Pelosi announced she would be talking about the 25th Amendment.
The amendment provides a way for a president to step down, in the event they are unable to lead.
Pelosi seemed to imply she is trying to remove Trump, over his COVID diagnosis.
Yet, the amendment cannot remove a president by force—despite what the Speaker is implying.
President Trump seems to think Pelosi has another trick up her wrinkled old sleeve, and he’s calling her out on it:
Crazy Nancy Pelosi is looking at the 25th Amendment in order to replace Joe Biden with Kamala Harris. The Dems want that to happen fast because Sleepy Joe is out of it!!!
President Trump seems to believe that Pelosi is trying to use the 25th Amendment to remove Joe Biden, if he wins.
Everyone has speculated what would happen if Biden did win the election. Given the overwhelming evidence that the man is sick, something he’d step down immediately.
Trump might be suggesting Pelosi is laying the groundwork for Biden to be quickly removed for Kamala to take his place.
That is possible, but unlikely.
If Joe really was just a puppet to install far-left Kamala, he wouldn’t need Pelosi to pass legislation to make it happen.
He would just step down and, as per the conditions already set in the 25th Amendment, his vice president would take over.
As the amendment is written, the vice president and majority of the cabinet can urge a president to step down.
We know that will never happen under Vice President Pence. But the bill also says a majority of Congress, “by law” can remove the president.
That means that if Congress can pass a law—and it is signed by the president—they can use the 25th Amendment to remove a president, if he is unable to lead.
That could be used if Joe Biden wins, but let’s get real here.
It would take a majority of both the House and the Senate to pass Pelosi’s ridiculous scheme. That’s not going to happen.
Even then, Trump will not sign this into law, regardless if it was aimed at him or a future President Biden.
Which begs the question, why is Pelosi wasting her time? Perhaps she thinks this will affect the election.
Maybe Americans will be moved by Pelosi’s “concern.” But after what she’s done this year, she’s dreaming.
- Pelosi is suggesting she wants to pass a law to remove the president under the 25th
- Trump claims she is doing this so Joe Biden can be removed if elected.
- The law would have to be passed by the Senate and the president—so it’s not going to happen.
