Sequel to the Capitol invasion which taint the democratic image of the United States, a action that led the house to pass for the removal of Trump before the end of his tenure next week. The United States Vice-president Mike Pence said in a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that he wouldn’t invoke the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump from office, just hours before the House readied to vote on a resolution asking Mr. Pence and the cabinet to do just that.
“I do not believe that such a course of action is in the best interest of our nation,” he said in the letter, saying it would set a dangerous precedent.
