Vice President Pence refuses to implement 25th amendment to remove Trump, says – this will set a bad example


Washington: The outgoing Vice President of the United States, Mike Pence, refused to implement the 25th Amendment of the Constitution to remove the country’s outgoing President Donald Trump. Pence said in a letter to Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi, “In our Constitution, the 25th Amendment is not a means to punish or take away the right.” Implementing the 25th amendment in this way will set a bad example. ”

Pelosi and the House of Representatives were pressuring Pence and the Cabinet to take action to remove Trump from the post of an attack on January 6 in the US Capitol (House of Parliament) by thousands of supporters of the president. Pence said in a letter, “As you are well aware, the 25th Amendment was designed to deal with the incapacity of the President.”

The White House released a copy of this letter on Tuesday night. He said, “Only a few months ago, when you introduced the Bill for the 25th Amendment Commission, you said that a President’s fit for office will be decided on the basis of science and facts. You said that a respectful attitude should not be taken on the basis of any comment or behavior which we did not like, and any decision should be taken on medical grounds. ”

Pence said that after the horrific incident of last week, the administration’s energies are focused on the systematic transfer of power. “Between the global epidemic, the financially difficult times for millions of Americans, and the tragic incident of January 6, it is time for Americans to unite, now is the time to heal the wounds,” he said.

Pence appealed to the MPs to work in unison. He said that every American is shocked and saddened by the attack on the Capitol last week. Pence said, “But now that there are only eight days left in the President’s term, you and the Democratic Caucus are demanding that I and the Cabinet implement the 25th Amendment.” I do not think it will be in the interest of our country or in accordance with our constitution. ”
