President Trump’s repeated violations of his sworn oath to defend the Constitution, most recently by  fomenting deadly, destructive, racist and anti-semitic violence against the U.S. government inside the U.S. Capitol, threatens the safety of all Americans

New York, NY - Monday, January 11th, 2020 - GLAAD, the world’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) media advocacy organization, along with leading LGBTQ legal, health, youth, justice and equality organizations, is calling for the immediate removal of Donald Trump as President effective immediately.

“As LGBTQ organizations and movement leaders, we call for the immediate and unequivocal removal of Donald Trump as President of the United States via the invoking of the 25th Amendment or by impeachment if necessary.
