Should Donald Trump lose the presidential election on November 3 to his opponent, Vice President Joe Biden, he will remain in the White House for an additional two and a half months knowing he won’t remain in power for much longer. Considering the unpredictably of Trump’s presidency, his recent outbursts on Twitter, and his willingness to put staffers and supporters at risk of contracting COVID-19 to continue his presidential bid uninterrupted, the idea of an unrestrained Trump at the helm in the White House for 10 weeks should be enough to frighten anyone.

During a press conference on Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that Democrats would be holding an event to discuss the 25th Amendment and what it may mean in the coming days of the Trump presidency. While members of Congress have no power to invoke the 25th Amendment, her statement has sparked speculation that maybe she knows something about Trump’s cabinet, who does have the power to invoke the amendment to remove Trump from office, that the rest of the world does not.
‘Come here tomorrow. We’re going to be talking about the 25th Amendment. But not to take attention away from the subject we have now.’
Reporters pressed her for answers, but Pelosi went into no further detail. She did, however, ask a question that has kept Americans awake at night for the past four years: just how dangerous is Donald Trump?
‘I’m not talking about it today except to tell you, if you want to talk about that, we’ll see you tomorrow,” she said. “But you take me back to my point, Mr. President, when was the last time you had a negative test before you tested positive? Why is the White House not telling the country that important fact about how this made a hotspot of the White House?’
Twitter had a big reaction to the announcement by Speaker Pelosi. Read some of their comments below:
