The member of Congress from the Bay Area, Jackie Speier, send out a Tweet today, asking for President Trump to be removed from office. She said that the Congress can do this by using a very rarely used constitutional amendment.
ABC News reported that Congresswoman Jackie Speier tweeted that now it’s time to remove President Trump from office.
Here is what she tweeted.
“POTUS is showing signs of erratic behavior and mental instability that place the country in grave danger. Time to invoke the 25th amendment.”

Speier tweeted this message after President Trump’s news conference about the horrible tragedy in Charlottesville, Virginia. The important thing to mention here is that no President in the history of America has been removed from office under the 25th Amendment because of mental incapacity.
This amendment was created after President John F Kennedy was assassinated. It’s goal was to set things in the right direction again if a President or a Vice-President couldn’t perform their duties. It’s been used when former President Reagan and former President George W. Bush went into surgery.
However, it is not that easy to implement this amendment. It immediately faces two obstacles. First, the amendment doesn’t specifically mention mental incapacity. In addition, who determines the mental condition? In other words, who determines the test of what is and what isn’t mentally incapable?
Whatever the case is folks, President Trump needs our support now more than ever.
Thank you for reading.
