Corporate group urges officials to consider quick removal of Trump

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -The head of a major U.S. business group that represents 14,000 companies including Exxon Mobil Corp, Pfizer Inc and Toyota Motor Corp urged senior U.S. officials to consider removing President Donald Trump from office after supporters of the outgoing president stormed the U.S. Capitol.

National Association of Manufacturers President and CEO Jay Timmons said Trump “incited violence in an attempt to retain power, and any elected leader defending him is violating their oath to the Constitution and rejecting democracy in favor of anarchy.... Vice President (Mike) Pence, who was evacuated from the Capitol, should seriously consider working with the Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment to preserve democracy.”

... have been properly attended to back in January of 2020 when he was impeached by the Congress but let off the hook by the Senate. It was the contention of the Republican Senate that the people should decide if he goes via the ballot box.

Now they have supported trDump for over two months with his sick scheme of a political coup or a fascist junta backed up by some white.supremacist militia trDump is chummy with.

This is subversion of Democracy,... this was/is not innocent child's play here. If he can't have the powers of the presidency for his own,.. trDump will burn down America so no one else can have it either.

He needs tp be stopped and then prosecuted and never permitted to hold any public office again as long as he lives. The people who enabled him should get the same treatment pf prosecution and barred from public office.
