We'll talk about 25th Amendment tomorrow: Pelosi

We'll talk about 25th Amendment tomorrow: Pelosi”

US Democrats on Thursday proposed a commission to investigate whether Donald Trump is mentally fit for office - and look at the constitutional options for his removal if necessary. "But not to take attention away from the subject we have now", she said, referring to stimulus bill talks.

The president's opponents have discussed invoking the 25th Amendment for some time, but are raising it now, so close to Election Day, as the campaigns are fast turning into a referendum on Trump's handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

Just weeks before the November 3 election, Pelosi said Trump needs to disclose more about his health after his COVID-19 diagnosis.

The announcement came after Pelosi, during her weekly press conference Thursday, urged reporters to return to Capitol Hill "tomorrow" because "we're going to be talking about the 25th Amendment" of the Constitution, which outlines the transfer of power procedures for if the president is removed from office, resigns, or dies. "Crazy Nancy is the one who should be under observation", he wrote.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi responded to President Donald Trump calling himself the "perfect physical specimen", declaring, "his disassociation from reality would be amusing if it weren't so deadly".

The comments marked a shift for McConnell, who earlier this week said he supported Trump's decision to call off talks. "I believe she wants it to happen because it's so good for our country", the president said, adding later that an airline bailout and $1,200-per-person stimulus check for all Americans similar to those sent out in April are on the negotiating table.

Trump, at the direction of his doctors, has been taking dexamethasone, a steroid used to reduce lung inflammation in COVID patients, that can, in some cases, prompt psychiatric side effects, including mood swings, rage and psychosis.

On Oct. 8, Pelosi said, "I have been very open to having a single stand-alone bill for the airlines or part of a bigger bill". Pelosi has also said this week she is pressing for language that would limit Trump's ability to divert virus testing and treatment funds to other projects.

2- When there is a vice presidential vacancy, the House and Senate votes to confirm a replacement nominated by the president. Talks were ongoing when Trump shut them down.

"We told the White House we're at the table".

Trump's diagnosis last week coincides with an outbreak across the White House, as a number of the visitors and high-level advisers to the president have now tested positive and are in quarantine.
