U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has expressed concern that “unstable” President Donald Trump could start military action or “order a nuclear strike.”
According to Pelosi, she has already had a conversation about taking the measures necessary to deter Trump with the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the U.S. Armed Forces, Mark Milley.
“This morning, I talked to Milley about available precautions to prevent an unstable president from initiating military action or ordering a nuclear strike by getting the launch codes,” CNN quoted the speaker as saying.
She once again noted that if Trump does not leave the presidency on his own, Congress will take an example of measures and invoke the 25th Amendment, which provides for the transfer of power due to the death or incapacity of the head of state.
According to the channel, more than 200 lawmakers have already spoken in favor of Trump’s removal. Calls for impeachment came after protesters (Trump was accused of being allegedly his supporters-Red.) went to storm the Capitol, where Congress tried to confirm Joe Biden as president-elect.
In the end, the Democrat was still confirmed as the new head of state, and Trump promised to peacefully hand over power to the new administration.
On January 8, American political scientist Daniel Shaw said that the democracy that Washington loves to talk about never existed. According to him, what happened in Washington had no precedent in U.S. history.
