The top Democrats in Congress called for President Donald Trump’s removal Thursday, a day after a mob spurred by the president overran the Capitol as lawmakers tallied President-elect Joe Biden’s presidential win.

Both Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., called on Vice President Mike Pence and Trump’s Cabinet to remove the president from office by invoking the 25th Amendment. Both said they could move forward with impeachment if the vice president and secretaries do not act.

In a statement earlier Thursday, Schumer said Congress “should reconvene to impeach the president” if Pence and the Cabinet do not invoke the 25th Amendment. Pelosi said lawmakers “may be prepared” to take the step if executive branch officials do not try to remove him. She added that the move would have “overwhelming” support within her caucus.

Both Democratic leaders said Trump would endanger the country even in the two weeks he has left in office.
