Rep. Eric Swalwell floated the 25th Amendment on Friday, suggesting that President Trump is unfit to serve and should be removed from the office.

The California Democrat was reacting to Mr. Trump’s suggestion that Senate Republicans kill the filibuster in order to pass the House spending bill with $5.7 billion for border security.

Mr. Swalwell also slammed the president for trying to shift blame toward the Democrats for the looming government shutdown.

“This isn’t hot potato. This is people’s lives,” the congressman tweeted. “You were given options to secure the border and avoid a shutdown. You chose chaos. Grow up and lead.”
