House Chairman Nancy Pelosi declined on Friday to say whether unprecedented procedural action will be called upon to remove President Donald Trump. She said “That’s not up for us to make decisions,” even though it weighs behind a new measure, which gives Congress a role in evaluating whether US President can be pushed out of office because it cannot carry out its mission.
Trump is suffering from coronavirus, and if he comes back to the White House, then it will be a case of concern again. He will be moving freely and will spread the infection. For this reason, Pelosi has said that it will be a good idea if the President leaves the chair and gives it to the other candidate. The step, which is coming after the latest diagnosis of coronavirus by Trump, will set down a procedure to potentially allow the Congress to take a vote on dismissing a president under the 25th Constitutional amendment, allowing him or her from office whether he or she is not found to perform his or her duties by the majority of cabinet members and the vice president.
He is not well, and he cannot perform his tasks properly now. It will take a lot of time for him to come back, and till then, the elections will approach, and we might have a new leader. Just to make the people aware of the things going on, this news was made public. Congress will decide on the same. It will be decided in the meeting, and a new body will be formed to understand the situation’s criticality. The bill will set up this body to determine the President’s fitness. Pelosi and the Democratic Rep. Jamie Raskin of Maryland formally presented the proposal on Friday. Pelosi insisted at his press conference to announce that it would cover future presidents instead of Trump while stressing the importance of this process due to his recent health challenges.
“It’s not President Trump, he’ll face the voters’ opinion, but he shows us that we need to create a process for future Presidents,” said Pelosi, adding that “this law applies for future presidents, but we have to remember that the health of the current president requires us to act.” The measure is almost unlikely to become law. However, it’s intended to increase Trump’s attention following his doctors’ limited information about coronavirus recovery. Pelosi has asked whether Trump would do his job, considering his opioid regime, including using a steroid, as part of his House Democrats campaign. On Thursday, she told Trump that “there might be some deterioration of the decision” and that “There might be a modification of an altered state right now.”
When questioned whether she had a concern about the office power, Pelosi said, “I said about the President, we did not even know whether someone – I did not, I quoted others to tell us that when they are on drugs, or whether they had Covid-19, there might be a deficiency of judgment or both. But it was once again the case with physicians and clinicians. Pelosi said, ‘We may not know if there are those who may not. The remarks triggered a furious reply by Trump, who responded with several messages that show that Pelosi was attempting to mount a coup. Trump eventually answered Pelosi: “Mad Nancy is the one to be watched. Majority Senate Leader Mitch McConnell opposed House Democrats’ attempts on Friday as “absurd.”
“It’s ridiculous. Absurd. Again, I think such crazy remarks can be quite dismissed in the past three weeks before the polls,” he said at a Kentucky News conference. The new plan would create a committee of 17 — eight Republicans and eight democratically chosen — and a moderator of the whole assembly. It may study the health of the Chairman and order an assessment from the Chairman. If the President disagreed, the Commission could give an opinion on the President’s state with the details already known. A committee majority could vote for the dismissal of the Chairman, but only with the vice-chairman.
It may include the senators, vice presidents, and cabinet secretaries, or other former executive officeholders. The committee will consist of doctors and executive officeholders. In an interview, Raskin told CNN that it was believed they were better qualified to comprehend the presidency’s obligations and determine if a Chair was fit to take office. “At the time of Friday’s press conference, there are often just the most serious cases where you have a president who cannot do the office’s functions.”
On Thursday, The White House communications director, Alyssa Farah, again declined by referencing Trump’s “internal medical background,” to inform reporters about the date of President Farah’s last negative examination before it happened. After checking for the virus twice last Thursday and issuing an early Friday morning declaration of its positive status, Trump’s situation appeared critical. Later Friday, the doctor informed Trump that he had a high fever, and was then transported to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for three days, with the extra oxygen and antibody cocktails from the biotechnology firm Regeneron.
However, he did not always follow the precautions necessary to minimize the transmission of the disease, which researchers say is social distancing and masks. On Sunday, Trump left the hospital for an SUV with his followers, who cheered him outside Walter Reed with their security details. And on Monday, Trump took off his masque to greet his helicopter as he stepped inside, on a dramatic return to the White House. If it is found that Trump is not in a condition to rule and make decisions, then he will be made to leave the chair. Till the election results are announced, the body will take all the decisions. Trump is still not ready to follow the norms and gives a tough time to the officials with his tantrums.
