L.A. Mayor Joins Leaders & Lawmakers Calling For The Early Removal Of Trump

By Ashlyn Davis January 7, 2021

Following the raid on the U.S. Capitol yesterday, L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti echoes Democrat’s call to remove President Trump from office early.

Thousands of pro-Trump protestors stormed the U.S. Capitol yesterday as congress was preparing to certify the November election results. It resulted in four deaths, injuries and a lockdown of the nation’s center. In a news conference with several other council members in South Los Angeles, Mayor Garcetti said it may be necessary for President Donald Trump to leave office early if he could not keep the peace in the country.

“What we saw yesterday were thugs, thugs who brought an abomination to our nation’s capital and who attacked our Capitol. … It was a group of people who were inspired by who were incited by the president of the United States of America, a sentence I never thought I would say in my lifetime,” Garcetti said in the conference. “It is time to quote you, Mr. President, not to stand by but to stand down,” Garcetti added. “And if necessary, to leave this office early if you cannot keep the peace of this country,” he continued. This was reinforced with a series of Tweets.

He joins a growing number of leaders and lawmakers across the country, calling for Trump’s removal for inciting an armed insurrection against America. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the President should immediately be removed by invoking the 25th Amendment or impeachment.

The sentiments rippled through the state, with Rep. Mark Takano demanding that he be impeached immediately. “Yesterday’s assault and desecration of our temple of democracy, the U.S. Capitol, was a direct result of his words and actions,” he said in a Tweet.
