Donald Trump Is Unfit for Office

He should be removed as president of the United States immediately.

Donald Trump is unfit for office and should be removed as president of the United States immediately. He has flagrantly violated his oath and desecrated the highest office in the land. He is a clear and present danger to our democracy. Remove him. Now.

To be clear, his unfitness was apparent long before yesterday when the mob he has consistently stoked for years turned violent and stormed the nation’s Capitol to stop the certification of the election he convinced them was “rigged” before it was even conducted. It was clear when he proposed to ban Muslims from entering the country, when he separated children from their parents, and when he built a wall along the U.S.–Mexico border. It was clear when he called for violence against peaceful Black Lives Matter protesters this summer. It was clear when he proposed the nuking of a hurricane and scrubbed all mentions of climate change from government websites. None of these incidents came as a surprise. He promised them all from the campaign trail.

Donald Trump was never fit to serve.

As an organization, NRDC is built on accountability. In fact, we have sued this administration 136 times for just that purpose. We believe that no one is above the law. Not the insurrectionists who stormed the Capitol, not the security apparatus that let it happen, and not the elected officials who either stayed silent or actively fanned the flames. But first and foremost, not the president who explicitly incited, empowered, and enabled them. Remove him now.
