U.S. Congress certifies Biden’s victory, growing demands for Trump’s immediate removal after the violence

Biden’s victory: After the assault on Congress by Donald Trump’s supporters that the elections were rigged, the US House and Senate rejected all appeals and certified Joe Bide’s election to the White House. President Donald Trump: “I disagree, but there will be an orderly transition.” The White House released a statement, affirming that it the greatest presidential term’s end in history.  “But it is only the beginning of our struggle to make America great again. I have always said that. We will continue our struggle to ensure that only legal votes count,” Donald Trump added.

The number of deaths during the riots and the assault on Congress rises to four. The police confirmed have found explosive devices in front of the headquarters of both the Democratic National Convention (DNC) and the Republican National Convention (RNC). A vehicle was also spotted near Congress with a rifle and Molotov cocktails. While Washington declared a state of emergency until January 21, rumors continue to circulate increasingly insistent in the White House of an immediate removal of Donald Trump’s hypothesis.

Opening the session to certify Joe Biden’s victory, Mike Pence condemned the onslaught of Donald Trump supporters. “You didn’t win, violence never wins,” he said. “They tried to destroy our democracy, but they failed.” Mitch McConnell, the leader of the Republicans in the Senate, stated, speaking of a false insurrection. An armed rebellion which, however, will not prevent the Senate from doing its job. “The United States will not be intimidated,” he continued, ensuring that he will not bow to lawlessness.

The Washington Post demands that the responsibility for this act of insurrection rest with the president, who has shown himself to be a threat to democracy: “He caused the assault on Congress. He must be removed.” Trump “is not fit to hold office for the next 14 days. Every second he maintains the vast powers of the presidency is a threat to public order and national security,” adds the editorial board of the Washington Post. “Trump is a threat, and as long as he remains in the White House, the country will be in danger,” notes the Washington Post.

The idea of ​​invoking the 25th amendment to remove Donald Trump is strengthening in the president’s cabinet. Several reports affirm that the option is under discussion within the White House but not aired to Vice President Mike Pence. The 25 / o amendment of the Constitution provides that the vice-president takes power in the event the president dies, resigns, or is removed from office. Unlike impeachment, therefore, it allows you to remove the president without having to raise charges. So much that Donald Trump national security adviser Robert O’Brien and his deputy Matt Pottinger are also considering resigning after the violence in Congress.

Powerful Republican Senator Lindsey Graham also turns his back on Donald Trump, of whom he has been a close ally. “Trump and I have had a great trip. I’m sorry it ends this way, but today all I can say is don’t count on me. When it’s too much is too much. I’ve tried to be useful,” he said in the Senate, affirming that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris “have been legally elected and will become president and vice president.”

Why America Is Better Off Without Trump Altogether

Why America Is Better Off Without Trump Altogether

America Is Better Off Without Trump: As Donald Trump comes to know that he is not to resume office in the next session, he seems to have disappeared from the scene altogether. The result is that people have been left stranded without any solid leadership, at a time when America is seeing its worst case of medical catastrophe. The corona virus numbers continue to swell and there is no respite for the American public. 

The elect president Joe Biden is trying to set his stage and agenda as he takes over office at the White House. But meanwhile, the helm should have been held by Donald Trump, who seems to have out of sight and thinking of how to secure his own political fate. He did not seem to have addressed the nation after the daily toll of affected people rose to 2,879 deaths. Till last week, confirmed cases numbered 217,664 and over 100,000hospitalizations.

Sources confirm that Trump indeed has busied himself fundraising for his future political endeavours and happily also sowing seeds of doubt in the country’s democratic foundations. It is sad to see that indeed the American people had been fooled in selecting someone so spineless and selfish as Donald Trump, whose Trump’s Twitter feed, meanwhile, has focused almost entirely on making wild, false accusations of electoral fraud.

It is so surprise that, like a spoilt child, Trump has been speaking of Biden getting the credit for the vaccine dissemination that starts after the latter takes office in January. The attitude is completely unfit for a leader of a nation and his approach is shameful. 

Trump continues on his campaigns, throwing caution to wind and mocking fellow White House officials for using common sense approach to maintain hygiene and social distancing protocols.
