GOP Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania stunned the nation Sunday when he came out in support of President Donald Trump tendering his resignation.
Asked by CNN’s Jake Tapper whether Trump should resign in the wake of an attack on the U.S Capitol on Wednesday, Toomey answered in the affirmative.
“Yeah, I do,” he said, according to Breitbart. “I think at this point with just a few days left, it’s the best path forward — the best way to get this person in the rearview mirror for us that could happen immediately.”
Toomey went on: “I’m not optimistic it will [happen]. But I think that would be the best way forward.”
Others in the GOP have rejected calls for Trump to resign or be impeached, saying they’re more show than substance.
