Rep. Gwen Moore (D-WI) said this week that President Donald Trump should just resign and leave the White House in a “dignified” and “honorable manner.”
Calling Trump a “dangerous” president, Moore told an anti-Trump resistance podcast that she has been “very concerned about Donald Trump for a very long time,” adding that she also supports efforts to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove him from office.
“His resigning is a sort of dignified way for him to leave as opposed to being impeached or as opposed to being indicted or as opposed to having the 25th amendment invoked,” Moore continued. “It’s really a very palliative approach, I think, to ask him to just go quietly and spare all of us this pain.”
She said that Republicans “whisper” to her that they are concerned and “very, very alarmed,” especially after Trump decided to withdraw the U.S. from Syria.
Earlier in the year, Rep. Al Green (D-TX), the most vocal impeachment advocate in Congress, also said Trump must “resign” or be impeached.
More added that resigning would be the “most honorable thing” Trump could do “if he would ever do anything honorable.”
“This would be the opportunity to do it,” Moore said.
