Did you know that President Donald Trump can be removed from office without being impeached? An article on TIME thoroughly explained the rights stated in Section Four of the 25th Amendment.
I, personally, do not think our vice president will take action and go against our president. At the same time, he may do the unthinkable.
The 25th Amendment came to light when Minnesota’s Democratic Senator Al Franken and some of his Grand Old Party (GOP) colleagues proposed that President Trump is “not right mentally.” Because of what Senator Franken and several of his colleagues said, he gained the support of 35 mental health professionals from psychologists to social workers. These individuals claim that [President Trump] is demonstrating “grave emotional instability.”
As a U.S. Citizen, this is a combination of good news and bad news. Although my views may not align with President Trump, I do not want him to be removed from office for many reasons. One of the main reasons why I want the president to stay in office is what America will have to face with Vice President Pence in lead. Our president has only been in office for a little over two months, and the U.S. is already suffering in many ways (Muslim ban, deportation, repealing of Obamacare and the Affordable Health Care Act (AHCA), etc.).
Our vice president is a well-educated individual with numerous years of experience in politics; this means he will do everything in his power to make President Trump’s plans come to life, or he will incorporate his plans as well that are not yet publicized to Americans. Huffington Post once wrote an article about Vice President Pence’s views on the issues, and President Trump is nothing compared to our vice president.
I think that we need to take a step back and re-evaluate if this is the right step to take. We need to think about the consequences and what we are willing to undergo as a result. Do we want President Trump for four years, or do we want Vice President Pence for four years? It is easy to say, “I want an impeachment” or “I do not want him in office for four years,” etc., but I rather play it safe than looking back with regret.
