U S Vice President Rejects The Request To Remove Trump
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.
Vice-president Pence met in the Oval Office on Monday, marking the first time they have spoken since the Capitol incident on Wednesday during the certification of the 2020 electoral votes.
“The two had a good conversation, discussing the week ahead and reflecting on the last four years of the administration’s work and accomplishments,” a senior administration official said.
The men agreed that those who broke the law and stormed the Capitol last Wednesday “do not represent the America first movement backed by 75 million Americans.”
