North Carolina Republican Madison Cawthorn has called on Vice President Kamala Harris to invoke the 25th Amendment and remove President Biden from office following the Kabul attacks.
“Our nation is at a crisis point,” he wrote in a letter to Ms Harris and the rest of the cabinet on Thursday.
Mr Cawthorn said China’s ambitions on the world stage, the threat from Russia, rising inflation, chaos at the southern border and the situation in Afghanistan will take strong, decisive leadership to combat.
“These times of crisis require intelligence, competence, hardiness, and firm hands at the tiller of the ship of state,” he wrote.
“It brings me no pleasure to report this, but I have become increasingly convinced of what you already know, President Biden is no longer capable of discharging the duties of his office.”
