If congressmen approve the bill, the initiative will go to the Senate controlled by Republicans.
The bill presented by Democrats in the US Congress on forming a special commission to assess the President’s ability to lead the country refers to the candidate for the highest state post, Joseph Biden. The current head of the White House, Donald Trump, said this on Sunday on Fox News.
The head of state was asked to comment on this bill, presented on Friday by the speaker of the House of Representatives of the US Congress, Nancy Pelosi (Democrat from California). “I believe that she was referring to Joe Biden, because, frankly, it is he who has problems. This is obvious to everyone who watches and listens to his speeches,” Trump claimed.
As Pelosi explained, the Commission mentioned above will be responsible for compliance with the 25th amendment to the US Constitution. According to the amendment, the Vice-President holds the post of head of state in the event of early termination of the President’s powers or incapacity. Also, the amendment defines the procedure for establishing the American leader’s temporary incapacity, in which the Vice President begins to act as head of the White house. The speaker of The house of representatives, who occupies the third most important port in the US state hierarchy, insisted that the bill is not related to Trump.
Thus, according to the Democrats’ bill controlling the House of Representatives, the permanent Commission can remove the head of state “in case of his incapacity.” If congressmen approve the bill, the initiative will go to the Senate controlled by Republicans.
