Sen. Elizabeth Warren called on White House officials Thursday for removal of President Trump from office as she feels he is unfit to handle the responsibilities of the job.
The Massachusetts Democrat and progressive hero is often touted as a 2020 presidential hopeful. She said on Wednesday’s op-ed in the New York Times by an anonymous White House official justifies forcing out Donald Trump under the constitutional provisions for an incapacitated president. The anonymous author clearly wrote that Trump administration officials are working actively to prevent Trump from carrying out his worst instincts.
She told to an interview to CNN that if senior administration officials think the President of the United States is not able to do his job, then they should invoke the 25th Amendment. She obviously wants the removal of Donald Trump from the office.
The 25th Amendment allows the vice president to take over the job if the commander in chief is not able to discharge the powers and duties of his office.
Ms. Warren sent out a fundraising letter shortly after the interview making the same case for removing Mr. Trump. The letter asks recipients to “chip in” for Ms. Warren’s 2018 Senate re-election campaign. It also asked to sign a petition which was interestingly titled as “Tell the cabinet: If Trump is unfit, invoke the 25th.”
Ms. Warren late in the evening tripled down on her claim by sending out several tweets repeating the points and much of the language of the fundraising letter and the interview given to CNN.
