The increasing number of Cabinet officials and Republican leaders told CNN that they believe in removing President Trump from office before January 20. Four representatives requested the 25th Amendment to be called on. However, two of them said that the President should be impeached. President Donald Trump’s supporters try to break through a police barrier at the Capitol in Washington on Wednesday.
The current Republican elected official said that Donald Trump has to be impeached and removed from office.
A former senior official stated that the President’s activities were egregious enough to remove him even when such a short time left in his tenure. Moreover, the former official thinks this has been a considerable shock to the system, and we do not allow him to keep in place for even two weeks.
I am asking for everyone at the U.S. Capitol to remain peaceful. No violence! Remember, WE are the Party of Law & Order – respect the Law and our great men and women in Blue. Thank you!

With Trump’s impeachment and removal, the US Senate could later vote to disqualify him from running the federal office ever. On the other hand, calling for the 25th Amendment would require Vice President Mike Pence and a majority of the Cabinet officials to vote to remove Trump from office due to his inability to discharge the office’s authority and duties.
Cabinet Members to Hold Preliminary Discussions on 25th Amendment
A Republican source told CNN that some Cabinet members were holding preliminary discussions on the 25th Amendment request. The meeting continues, but it is uncertain how many Cabinet members will join in Trump’s removal. Some senators have been made mindful of the discussions, which reached Capitol Hill, Washington DC.
On Wednesday afternoon, just the protestors breached the Capitol, Republicans revisiting the idea of removing Trump from office, a choice that almost all of them approved during last year’s impeachment trial.
Strongly-Worded Rebuke Released by Former US Presidents
The decisive move of the “Pro-Trump mob break into US Capitol” of Trump was not known. On Wednesday evening, all four living former US presidents Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, George W. Bush, and Jimmy Carter, derided the protestors who forced removal of Senate chambers and the House of the US Capitol in strongly-worded criticizing statements that stressed the need for a peaceful transfer of powers. They named the violent protest at the Capitol a sickening and heartbreaking sight.
Mr. Bush stated that he received a massive shock from some political leaders’ irresponsible conduct without declaring Trump by name.
Senator Mitt Romney was the only GOP (Republican) to convict the President on an impeachment article last year. He called the President a selfish man who deliberately misinformed his supporters about the 2020 election.
Liz Cheney (Wyoming Republican Rep. and a member of the House leadership) imitated Romney’s anger and frustration at Trump. Cheney lit the flame on Fox News that there is no question that the President formed the mob. President Trump encouraged the crowd, and President Trump addressed the mob.
A staunch Trump ally, Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas, said that the president should have previously accepted the election results. He should leave misleading the American people and repudiate mob violence. Some other GOP leaders on Capitol Hill were furious with President Trump.
Rep. Adam Kinzinger dismissed Trump’s tweet requesting the Capitol’s protestors to remain peaceful and nonviolent. Kinzinger told Tapper that he needs to stand up and say he lost the election and let the tally proceed.
President Donald Trump blocked by Facebook and Twitter
The Twitter and Facebook accounts of Donald Trump has been suspended after tweeting his supporters who attacked the US Capitol.
Two Republican activists and allies of the White House said the Mr. President must leave. One stated that Mike Pence should move against Trump on the 25th Amendment. While the other said that they need to appeal the 25th Amendment immediately.
Mr. Trump said to the protesters, “I love you,” to the protestors before telling them to go home. He also repeated false claims of election fraud. Twitter said it required the deletion of three tweets for severe violations of our Civic Integrity policy. The company said the president’s account would ultimately remain locked for good if the tweets remained public. Twitter went on that continued violations of the Twitter Rules in the future will permanently suspend the @realDonaldTrump account.
In the meantime, Facebook also banned Mr. Trump’s account for 24 hours. YouTube also removed the related video. Moreover, Facebook said that they removed it because they believe it contributes to diminishing the risk of any violence.
