North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper has called for President Donald Trump to be removed from office if he does not resign. Cooper joins three other Democrats who have explicitly called for Trump's removal. This comes in response to Trump's efforts to overturn the election of President-elect Joe Biden. A violent mob descended on the U.S. Capitol as members of Congress counted Electoral College votes on Wednesday. Several Trump administration officials have since resigned. Democrats want Vice President Mike Pence to use the 25th Amendment to force Trump out of the White House.
