Lady Gaga has called for President Donald Trump to be impeached.
The 34-year-old singer wants the Commander-in-Chief removed from his final weeks in office following rioting at the Capitol building earlier this week but explained to her followers that it wouldn’t be appropriate to use the 25th amendment – which would see the vice president take control if the president is deemed “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office” – because it wouldn’t stop him from running for office again in the future, whereas impeachment could.
She tweeted: “I hope we focus to impeach Trump so Congress has the constitutional authority to possibly disqualify him from future election — the #25thAmendment doesn’t disqualify him. He incited domestic terror—how much more violence needs to happen? This is terrorism.”
If a president is impeached and removed from their position – which would requite two-thirds of the Senate to agree – they can be disqualified from holding any office in the future, if a majority vote agrees.
