Vice President Pence says he opposes removing President Trump with the 25th Amendment

US & World

WASHINGTON (NewsNation Now) — Vice President Mike Pence said in a letter to House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday that he is opposed to invoking the 25th Amendment to remove President Donald Trump from office.

“I do not believe that such a course of action is in the best interest of our Nation or consistent with our Constitution,” Pence said.

He also urged Congress to focus on uniting the country ahead of the transition to Biden’s administration and “avoid actions that would further divide and inflame the passions of the moment.”

The House passed a resolution on Tuesday night to push Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment. The House is expected to vote on impeachment Wednesday.
