Former GOP Sen. Gordon Humphrey: 'Seriously Sick' Trump Must Be Replaced ASAP

Gordon Humphrey told New Hampshire lawmakers in a letter that has been widely shared that they should back his bid to dump Trump.

Trump escalated his rhetoric against North Korea on Tuesday, telling reporters at his Bedminster, N.J. golf club that any future threats from Pyongyang would be met by "fire and fury like the world has never seen".

However, despite the rhetorical similarities between the "rain of ruin" and the "fire and fury", presidential historians like Michael Beschloss say Trump's language has been unusually harsh considering the context, noting that President John F. Kennedy's statements during the Cuban Missile Crisis were more muted and that President Dwight D. Eisenhower made a point of not matching the provocative tone of Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev.

Humphrey asked Kuster to support a bill in the House of Representatives that would establish a test to determine whether the president is mentally fit for office.

"Article I of the U.S. Constitution is very clear about that", Sullivan noted. "Donald Trump should be relieved of the powers of the presidency at the earliest date", the open letter from the former New Hampshire lawmaker added.

"Maybe it wasn't tough enough", Trump said of his previous statement.

Late last week, the United Nations Security Council passed new economic sanctions on North Korea, causing the country's leaders to warn it will take "physical action" as a response. "Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!" he tweeted.

That letter also asked about steps to address humanitarian issues such as the reunification of Korean families separated by the armistice that concluded the Korean War, and the return of remains of USA service members left in North Korea after the war.

GOP Senator Lindsey Graham said on Thursday the United States should go for a military option against North Korea and predicted that Washington will win the conflict.

"Donald Trump is seriously sick".

Humphrey has trashed Trump repeatedly throughout the campaign, urging the Republican National Committee (RNC) to replace Trump as the nominee months before Election Day.
