Yesterday, in an attempted coup, President Trump urged mobs to ravage the Capitol. The heart of American democracy was penetrated and ransacked by throngs protesting Trump’s election defeat. During the process, four people died.
As the entire world watched, Donald Trump dragged the U.S. into shameful depths never before approached. As newscasters observed, we are now no better than a banana republic. The world’s leading democracy is shamed before the world.
For the safety of the country, Congress should immediately implement the 25th Amendment to the Constitution to disempower Trump before he does even more severe damage. And he should be indicted for his many crimes in office.
I never thought I’d live to see the day our country was so degraded.
