Donald Trump has already been voted out of office, but his term of office could now come to an abrupt end. Allegedly, his own cabinet is considering removing him from power after his supporters storm the Capitol.

High-ranking members of the outgoing US administration discussed a possible removal of President Donald Trump by his own cabinet on Wednesday (local time), according to matching media reports. According to information from the US broadcasters CNN, CBS and ABC, these considerations are said to have been based on an amendment to the US constitution, which basically allows the cabinet to disempower the president.

As a prerequisite, the “25th Amendment” states that the President “is incapable of exercising the duties and powers of his office”. Criteria for this “inability” are not defined, generally physical or mental impairments are meant. CNN quoted anonymous Republican leaders as saying Trump was “out of control”.

The elected president, whose resignation from office is scheduled for January 20 anyway, whipped up his supporters, who had gathered in their thousands in Washington, with a speech on Wednesday. In it he repeated his completely unsubstantiated accusation of massive fraud in the presidential election on November 3rd and called for a march on the Capitol – the seat of Congress.

Trump supporters later stormed the Capitol and rioted in the building for hours. Trump called for “peace” in a video message that was still broadcast during the riot. At the same time he said to his rampaging supporters: “We love you” – and renewed his election fraud allegations.
