This has been a painful week for America.

The lies and inflammatory rhetoric deployed by our president resulted in the violent attack on our Congress. The president and his allies clearly intended to stop Congress from certifying the results of a free and fair election.

While the insurrection failed, deep damage has been done to our national psyche. Our traumas have been exacerbated. It will require tremendous time and energy for our nation to heal.

The business community has clearly rejected President Trump’s efforts. Some, like the National Association of Manufacturers, have called for the president to be removed from office. These calls were echoed by our colleagues within the LGBTQ community and the Civil Rights movement.

We agree. Donald Trump is not fit to serve as President of the United States. He should be immediately removed from office.
