Monday, Senator Rick Scott (R-FL) proposed using the 25th Amendment to remove President Joe Biden from office after Afghanistan quickly fell to the Taliban due to the United States’ rapid withdrawal from the region.
The 25th Amendment allows for the President of the United States to be stripped of authority if the Vice President and a majority of cabinet members communicate to Congress that the President “is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.”
This past week Senator Scott tweeted, “Inflation is raging. The debt ceiling expired & U.S. debt is headed to $45 TRILLION. Kabul is falling to the Taliban & encounters in the #BidenBorderCrisis just hit a 20 YEAR HIGH. Democrats control the House, Senate & @WhiteHouse. What in the world is Joe Biden doing?”
On Monday, Scott quoted that same tweet adding: “After the disastrous events in Afghanistan, we must confront a serious question: Is Joe Biden capable of discharging the duties of his office or has time come to exercise the provisions of the 25th Amendment?”
