The Associated Press: Biden does not support impeachment of Trump for focusing on the goals of his presidency



US President-elect Joe Biden has said that President Donald Trump is "unfit for the job," but has repeatedly refused to support the growing calls for Democrats to impeach him again, according to the Associated Press of America.


House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in a letter to her House members that lawmakers may move early next week to impeach Trump for inciting a violent mob to invade the US Capitol building if the president does not resign "immediately." Pelosi and Democratic Senate Leader Chuck Schumer also called on Vice President Mike Pence and the Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment to force Trump to step down - the act of stripping the president from office and installing the vice president to take over.


Speaking to reporters in his home state of Delaware after an event in which he presented some of his ministers' options, Biden noted that the main reason he ran for president was that he "believed for a very long time that President Trump was not fit for the profession."


Biden said, "I've now said, well, over a year ago, he's unfit to serve," "He's one of the most incompetent presidents in the history of the United States of America."


But he refused to support efforts to remove Trump from the White House, insisting that accountability was left to Congress. Instead, Biden said he had focused on starting his administration on January 20, and said his top three priorities were to beat the coronavirus, distribute vaccines in a fair and equitable manner and revive the ailing economy.


His comments revealed the political balance Biden worked to create in the months following his victory in the presidential election. He has continued to fiercely criticize Trump and nearly every aspect of his administration, but he has also worked to focus the public's attention on what the new administration will do rather than indulge in the accusations against the recent administration.
