US President Trump Acknowledged a new administration for the first time in a video released Thursday evening. The new US administration would take over on 20th January 2021. The video came after legislators called for invoking the 25th amendment and removing him from office. It follows the Wednesday assault by his supporters on the US Capitol that left 4 civilians dead. President Trump said, “A new administration will be inaugurated on January 20th. My focus now turns to ensure a smooth, orderly and seamless transition of power. This moment calls for healing and reconciliation”. The Speaker of US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, and at least one Republican-led calls for Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment and remove President Trump from office.
CBS News also reported that some Cabinet officials have discussed the possibility of invoking the 25th Amendment following the crisis at the Capitol. But those discussions had not resulted in a formal presentation to the vice president as of Wednesday evening. On Thursday, the CEO of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg said that he is banning Trump from using Facebook or Instagram for the rest of his presidency. He said, “The shocking events of the last 24 hours clearly demonstrate that President Donald Trump intends to use his remaining time in office to undermine the peaceful and lawful transition of power to his elected successor, Joe Biden. Moreover, 2 members of Trump’s Cabinet have resigned as a result of the Capitol siege. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao said she would be resigning effective on Monday.
Chao said on Wednesday, “The recent move has deeply troubled me in a way I simply cannot set aside”. Questions still remained on Thursday about the response of law enforcement. A Capitol police spokesperson confirmed that police chief Steven Sund would be resigning and it will be effective from 17th January 2021. President Trump said in his video on Thursday that he had immediately deployed the National Guard, although he did not. A senior administration official earlier informed a news outlet that the DC National Guard was activated on Wednesday after Pence contacted Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley and acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller. However, Trump has the power to immediately activate the National Guard, Pence does not.
