Trump issued a statement — because he’s been kicked off Twitter — saying, “Even though I totally disagree with the outcome of the election, and the facts bear me out, nevertheless there will be an orderly transition on January 20th.”
That would have been a nice place to end it, but Trump didn’t. He went on … “I have always said we would continue our fight to ensure that only legal votes were counted. While this represents the end of the greatest first term in presidential history, it’s only the beginning of our fight to Make America Great Again!”
Fact is … it’s possible Trump won’t make it to January 20, because some members of Congress want to trigger the 25th Amendment, which allows for removal if he’s unable to carry out his duties. There are now lots of folks in Congress and reportedly even in the President’s own cabinet, who believe he’s shown he’s unfit for office, and, they believe, being unfit makes him unable to carry out his duties.
Trump’s concession comes hours after Congress put a bow on the Presidential election and ratified the vote of the electoral college, which will make Biden the 46th President.
As you know, earlier in the day Trump encouraged the protesters to march to the Capitol and stay strong. Not only did he incite them … once they raided the Capitol he didn’t condemn it. In fact, in the end, he told the insurrectionists he loved them.
As for removing Trump, it’s gonna take the Veep and a majority of the Cabinet, or a two-thirds vote in both houses of Congress.
