Sign the petition: Remove Trump from office!

The petition to Vice President Pence and Donald Trump's cabinet reads:

"Invoke the 25th Amendment and remove Donald Trump from office right now."

Wednesday afternoon, a violent mob of Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol in a desperate attempt to stop Congress from certifying the results of the 2020 presidential election. Members of Congress had to be evacuated – and a woman was tragically shot and killed.

As the chaotic scene was unfolding, Trump released a video encouraging the rioters in the Capitol, telling them: "I love you. You’re very special." In the short video, he repeated his false claims that the presidential election was stolen from him.

Wednesday's violence was a predictable consequence of Donald Trump’s ongoing attempt to overturn the results of the election and encourage his supporters to join the fight.

Trump’s cabinet has the power to immediately remove him from office by invoking the 25th Amendment – and they need to do it right now.

Tell Trump’s cabinet: Invoke the 25th amendment and remove Trump from office right now.

To invoke the 25th Amendment, Vice President Pence and a majority of Trump’s cabinet need to send to Congress a “written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.” If they do so, Mike Pence would immediately become Acting President and Donald Trump would no longer be in office.

Since Wednesday afternoon, a growing chorus of elected officials and newspapers are calling on Trump's cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment. The National Association of Manufacturers – a major Republican-friendly business group released a statement saying that Mike Pence "should seriously consider working with the Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment to preserve democracy." As of last night, some members of Trump's cabinet are considering taking action to remove him from office.

Regardless of whether the 25th Amendment is invoked, Joe Biden will be sworn into office as President on January 20. But Trump’s brazen attacks on our democracy have gone way too far – and the damage he could do in the next two weeks is simply too great for him to remain in office.
