President Donald Trump is "losing his mind" and the time has come to consider removing him from office by utilizing the 25th Amendment, former Labor Secretary Robert Reich wrote on Facebook.
Reich, who was secretary of Labor in the Clinton administration, says that Trump has become more isolated, paranoid and "fearful of becoming weak and humiliated."
He added that "The further he falls, the more fragile his ego becomes, and the greater is the danger that he will do something desperate."
This is the reason why, he wrote, that the 25th Amendment should be considered, because it "provides for removal of a president who is 'unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.'"
Reich listed a series of recent events which he says show Trump's erratic and irrational behavior, such as sending tweets about the "travel ban" and attacking his own Department of Justice, "thereby undermining his own lawyers, who have been trying to make the legal case that Trump's ban on travel from several Muslim-majority countries is not a 'travel ban.'"
Reich has harshly criticized Trump throughout the election campaign and since he became president, including posting already a few months ago an article which listed at least four reasons why he thought the president should be impeached.
During the Democratic presidential primaries, Reich was an outspoken supporter of Sen. Bernie Sanders, The Hill reported.
