According to the 25th amendment of the US Constitution, if a president is unable to perform his duties, he can be removed before his term expires by bringing an impeachment motion against him. Democrats demanded that Trump be removed by implementing that amendment. But outgoing Vice President Mike Pence rejected that offer on Wednesday. “I don’t think such a move is the right decision for the country and for democracy,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in a written statement.
In the meantime, Donald Trump’s term as president is only 7 days away. But before the end of that term, the outgoing president of the United States is facing impeachment due to the attack on the capital. The impeachment motion will be put to a vote in the American Congress on Thursday. Coincidentally, five members of Trump’s Republican Party joined the Democrats. As a result, the impeachment motion against Trump is likely to be passed.
But the matter did not stop there. After that a vote was taken by bringing a proposal in the legislature. The vote is on whether to impose an impeachment motion against Trump. The result of the vote in favor of impeachment 223-205. In other words, 223 MPs voted for impeachment.
Earlier, in 2019, Trump also faced impeachment once. Facing the same situation again on Thursday. This is the first time in American history that a president has faced impeachment twice in a single term. And before that, some of the Republican delegates have opened their mouths directly against Trump.
