US House of Representatives Speaker, Democrat Nancy Pelosi, said that US President Donald Trump is “unstable”, calling for protecting American democracy from his “unbalanced attack.”
“The situation of this dysfunctional president is extremely dangerous, and we have to do everything in our power to protect the American people from its unbalanced attack on our country and our democracy,” she said in a message carried by Reuters.
Pelosi indicated that she had not received a response from Vice President Mike Pence regarding the activation of the 25th amendment to the country’s constitution, which the Democrats seek to use to remove President Donald Trump from power immediately.
This amendment provides for handing over the judgment to the vice president in circumstances including the death of the head of state or loss of ability to perform the duties of the presidency.
The US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi also announced that she discussed with the US military leadership preventing the current president of the country, Donald Trump, from launching any military operations or nuclear strikes.
Pelosi said, in a letter, she sent Friday to members of the House of Representatives, that she had spoken with the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley, about precautionary measures to prevent Trump from carrying out any hostilities or ordering a nuclear strike.
Pelosi said, “The situation of this dysfunctional president is of the utmost danger, and we must do everything in our power to protect the American people from their unbalanced attack on our country and our democracy.”
Trump is facing widespread criticism and accusations of inciting riots over the storming of the Congress headquarters by a group of his supporters on January 6, during the unrest that killed 5 people.
On Thursday, the White House reported that a number of Trump administration employees had resigned over these events, while Democrats in Congress moved to remove the president from power.
The President of the US House of Representatives called for Trump’s removal from power, describing him as a “very dangerous personality.”
