What happens now in the United States of America?

Commentators are calling for Donald Trump to be removed from the US presidency by invocation of the 25th amendment of the US Constitution which requires the Vice-President and half the cabinet to declare the president unfit to perform the duties of his office. Realistically, this isn’t going to happen.

The Vice-President and officers appointed by Trump himself will not have the conviction and courage to act in this way. In the unlikely event that they did, it is possible that such action would massively inflame Trump’s supporters who sadly are almost half the nation.

I think the best thing now is for the Trump administration effectively to be shut down for the remainder of his term of office.

We need to see resignation after resignation after resignation. We need those remaining in post to refuse to comply with any unreasonable instruction from the President. This must include his security detail, the secret service, the military, the national guard, and police forces.The media should stop carrying his utterances; he should simply be ignored. Social media should cut off his feeds at least until he is out of office.

In short, Trump should be reduced to a man who can do nothing.
