Evaluate Trump for Fitness to Serve

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate

Petition Statement

The office of President of the United States carries with it the implied elements of having the capacity to serve for the benefit of the country and its citizens. To the extent a person exhibits that they do not have the discipline to handle matters on a national and international scale without the need to constantly turn the spotlight on their own self and without flying into a rage about small slights without constant hand holding means they may not have the ability to represent this country and lead it to a positive destination. The President-elect's behavior throughout his campaign for office and before being confirmed puts his fitness to serve in question.
There are currently 28 signatures. We need 50 signatures!

Petition Background

The President-elect's behavior is so erratic that he appears to be very much like other public figures such as Saddam Hussein. He eschewed vitriol and rallied for outright violence, hate, and Constitutional violations - with impunity. This behavior from a leader signals this behavior should be the way of life for all citizens. It is not.

Even now, before having the capacity and authority to bind the United States in any agreements (therefore not having the right to begin having negotiation talks with others) he is using various techniques to waste taxpayer dollars and put the country in peril for the sake of his ego. His grasp of ethics leaves a large question in the minds of many. His "mercurial" nature does not create a sense of what this country needs - sound and solid leadership and guidance.

Already, he is delegating preparatory functions to his Vice President and refusing to attend national security briefings. This gives the appearance that Trump never wanted to hold office in the first place.

Before being confirmed to hold office, Trump should be evaluated to determine whether he has the capacity to do so. If not, the Electoral ballots should be cast for another who more closely fits the requirements of capable of holding office without needing to resign because of the enumerated disqualification conditions: ". . . death, resignation, or temporary incapacitation, or if the Vice President and a majority of the Cabinet judge that the President is no longer able to discharge the duties of the presidency."
