U.S. Rep Gwen Moore calls to remove President Donald Trump from office

More fallout following President Donald Trump's comments Tuesday blaming both sides for the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.

U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore told TODAY’S TMJ4 why she wants Trump removed from office.

The constitution offers two ways to remove a president, impeachment or the 25th Amendment, which can be used if the president is deemed unfit for office. Moore said it's time for Trump to go.
Trump defiantly blamed "both sides" for the weekend violence between white supremacists and counter-demonstrators in Virginia. Many questioned why he even showed sympathy for the fringe group's efforts to preserve confederate monuments.
Those comments angered Moore. She describes Trump as an apologist for neo-Nazi and white supremacists.
"If the president wants to side with that element in our community," Moore said, "I just think that this is just in and of itself enough evidence, notwithstanding what other things will eventually materialized, to start the conversation of removing him by what ever means necessary."

Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson said there are no grounds for impeachment.

House Speaker Paul Ryan tweeted: "We must be clear. White supremacy is repulsive. This bigotry is counter to all this country stands for. There can be no moral ambiguity."
U.S. Rep. Mike Gallagher from Green Bay was more critical of the president in his tweet: "The President needs to be crystal clear that hatred has no place in our society but he is currently failing at it."
