Republican Congressman Chip Roy from Texas has introduced a resolution in Congress urging Vice President Kamala Harris to invoke the 25th Amendment following President Joe Biden‘s lackluster performance in the first debate against former President Donald Trump.

The 25th Amendment, ratified in 1967, outlines a process allowing the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet to declare the president unfit to discharge their duties, subsequently making the vice president the acting president.

During the debate, Biden appeared disoriented and fumbled his words, leading to strong criticism from both sides of the political spectrum.

Rep. Roy’s resolution specifically calls upon Harris to take over as acting president, citing Biden’s alleged inability to fulfill his presidential duties.

If invoked, the 25th Amendment would see Harris assume the role of acting president unless Biden contested the declaration.

Despite concerns over Biden’s performance, Vice President Harris defended him, emphasizing his commitment to facts and truth during the debate.

Former Senator Claire McCaskill, a Democrat, also criticized Biden’s debate showing, stating that he failed to reassure the nation of his capabilities.

Republican figures like Senator Mike Lee and Senator Rick Scott indicated that discussions regarding the 25th Amendment have gained momentum in light of Biden’s performance.

Rep. Anna Paulina Luna pushed for the release of tapes from Biden’s interview with special counsel Robert Hur, asserting the need for a coherent leadership.
