Donald Trump intends to go to the end of his mandate. The American president estimated, Tuesday, January 12, that there was “no risk” that he be removed from office under the 25th Amendment to the Constitution. In the United States, this amendment allows the vice-president, with the support of his senior ministers, to declare a president unfit for office.
From Alamo, Texas, the tenant of the White House has also called “respect for the law”. “The time for appeasement has come for our country, the time for peace and calm”, did he declare. On January 6, supporters of the outgoing president committed violence after breaking into Congress.
A little earlier in the day, Donald Trump had ruled that the procedure of “impeachment” about to be launched against him by the Democrats was “totally ridiculous” and caused “immense anger” among his supporters, during one of his rare speeches since the violence at the Capitol. The US president is facing a second historic impeachment procedure, the indictment of which will be examined by the House of Representatives on Wednesday.
