More Than 200 Congressmen Want Trump Out
More than 200 US Congressmen want President Donald Trump to leave the White House immediately.
It is mainly Democratic Party MPs who have spoken out openly about this, NBC News reports based on its own count.
The call for Trump’s departure follows the Capitol’s storming by his supporters during the determination of the election results on Wednesday.
The Congress is made up of the Senate and the House of Representatives and has 535 members.
Some politicians want a new impeachment procedure to be started or the 25th Amendment to be used to resign the presidency. The vice president and cabinet members can decide through that Amendment that their leader is no longer able to perform his duties.
As far as is known, a Republican is also in favour of this: Adam Kinzinger of the House of Representatives.
