CHARLOTTE, N.C. — North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper is calling for President Donald Trump’s removal from office after the violent breach of the U.S. Capitol Wednesday by Trump supporters.
Cooper, along with other lawmakers across the county, spoke out Thursday about the incident.
Gov. Cooper tweeted the following:
“This president has betrayed our country and is therefore unfit to lead it. He should resign or be removed from office.”
Gov. Cooper’s social media post comes after lawmakers, within both parties, began discussing a second impeachment of President Trump.
Senior Trump administration officials raised the possibility of invoking Section 4 of the 25th Amendment — the forceful removal of Trump from power by his own Cabinet.
