Trump Acknowledges Transition After Calls For His Ouster - Eurasia Review


With pressure mounting in Washington for his early removal from office over his followers' rampage through the U.S. Capitol, U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday indicated he is giving up his fruitless drive to cling to his office and committed himself to an orderly transfer of power to Democrat Joe Biden, who will be sworn in as the 46th president on Jan. 20.

Earlier Thursday, the top two Democrats in Congress called for Trump's removal from office, either through a second impeachment or by way of a provision in the U.S. Constitution that permits the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet to remove a president who is mentally unfit. Some Republicans have also urged his removal.

But the latter path appeared unlikely following reports late Thursday that Vice President Mike Pence, who broke with Trump this week over the president's demands that he seek to overturn the election result, is unwilling to invoke the 25th Amendment.
