Democrats seek to remove Trump from the White House

US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has shared with lawmakers plans to remove President Donald Trump from office.

The House of Representatives would vote on a decision calling on Vice-President Mike Pence to remove Trump’s presidential powers.

The first vote could happen on Monday.

On Sunday, Ms Pelosi wrote to lawmakers outlining plans for a resolution to formally request that Vice-President Pence invoke the 25th Amendment. The move would allow Mr Pence to become acting president and remove Mr Trump from the White House.

Her letter said that this would be the first step and that House Democrats would then “proceed with bringing impeachment legislation to the floor”.

“In protecting our constitution and our democracy, we will act with urgency, because this president represents an imminent threat to both,” Ms Pelosi said.

Carolina congressman James Clyburn has been a strong ally of Joe Biden

Mr Trump has made no public statements since he was banned from several social media platforms — including Twitter — on Friday.
