On Sunday, members of both parties accused President Donald Trump of inciting Wednesday’s riots at the United States Capitol and called on him to resign.
As reported by The Hill, Republican Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania appeared on NBC’s Meet the Press, telling anchor Chuck Todd that the commander-in-chief should put the country first and leave office.
“I think the best way for our country, Chuck, is for the president to resign and go away as soon as possible.”
Toomey noted that the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution does not appear to be a realistic option, since members of Trump’s Cabinet seem unwilling to use it. He argued that there is no point in impeaching the commander-in-chief since he will leave office in 10 days.
