Democrats and some Republicans want Trump removed before his term ends on Jan. 20 with Democrat Joe Biden’s inauguration.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer joined those calling on the Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment to force Trump from office. It came a day after a violent mob of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol, forcing the building into lockdown. Trump called them “very special” people and said he loved them.

Cooper, a Democrat, said the president should resign or be removed from office.
