17 national LGBTQ organizations signed the following statement:
"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.

Voters have attempted to hold President Trump accountable, voting him out of office in the 2020 election. Congress and the Cabinet must now act to remove President Trump and the threat he poses to Americans' safety to ensure a peaceful transfer of power.
