In the aftermath of yesterday's storming of the U.S Capitol building by pro Trump extremists, some in Congress want the 25th amendment to be used to remove President Donald Trump from office.

The president in his speech on Wednesday incited chaos as he falsely claimed he won the election in a "landslide". After a mob of pro Trump rally attendees rushed the Capitol, violence ensued and four people were killed.
