How the 25th amendment would work to take Trump's power

How the 25th Amendment would work

The  25th amendment is a part of the constitution that gives explicit instructions for how to remove a president who is unfit to serve.

Step 1: The vice president Mike Pence and a majority of the cabinet would have to tell the Speaker Paul Ryan and the president pro tempore of the Senate  Orrin Hatch that they think that President Donald Trump should be removed.

Step 2: As soon as the message is delivered, Pence is president.

Step 3: President  Trump can get request to get his powers back just by saying that he is able to carry out the duties of the office.

Step 4: Within four days of President Trump saying they want their powers back, the vice president and the majority of the cabinet can declare that they still believe the president is unfit.

Step 5: Congress must convene within 48 hours and has 21 days to decide who to believe.

Step 6: To remove the president from office, both houses must vote, by a two-thirds majority, that the president is unable to discharge the duties of the office.

If they can’t reach a decision within 21 days, the power goes back to the president.

If the president is removed, the vice president takes over as president, and can appoint a new vice president.
