US politics live updates: Nancy Pelosi asks military to stop Donald Trump from accessing nuclear codes - ABC News

One of Trump's cabinet denies 25th amendment talk

ICYMI, US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi gave Vice-President Mike Pence an ultimatum yesterday — invoke the 25th amendment and remove Donald Trump from office or impeaching proceedings will begin.

Pence hasn't responded yet, but for the 25th amendment to be enacted, it requires the majority of Donald Trump's cabinet and the Vice-President to agree.

One of those who would be faced with the decision has just tweeted — Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson.

Carson, who ran for the Republican nomination for president against Trump in 2015, said he has not talked to anyone about invoking the 25th amendment.

"I have not talked to anyone about invoking the 25th Amendment, and I am focused on finishing what I started in uplifting the forgotten women and men of America," he said.

Yesterday two Trump cabinet secretaries — Elaine Chao and Betsy DeVos — resigned over the President's role in inciting the mob that stormed the US Capitol earlier this wek.
