Since the white house has recently become a corona virus hot-spot due to the recent revelation emanating from the White House that several president Donald Trump’s aides including Vice President Mike Pence tested positive for the corona virus, with the country trying to slowly kick start the economy during this deadly corona virus pandemic. The country’s leadership position is under threat, This is mainly because covid -19 is no respecter of man, it kills both the weak and powerful.
SO WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF BOTH THE U.S PRESIDENT AND VICE PRESIDENT ARE INCAPACITATED?
Thankfully according to the Constitution of the United States of America Article II, Section 1, Clause 6 of the Constitution provides that Congress may declare who should act as president if both the president and vice president of the United States of America dies or were otherwise unable to serve during their terms in office, this is the presidential succession act of 1947 which was enacted after the death of president Franklin Delano Roosevelt, This Constitution favours the next two most senior elected officials in the country, the first the speaker(Nancy Pelosi) of the House of Representatives, and then the president pro tempore of the United States of America Senate, this clearly favour Nancy Pelosi who has done everything possible to see it comes to pass.
Nancy Pelosi has planned this all along, and everything seems to be falling in place, the recent outbreak of corona virus in the white house is prove that anything is Very possible. We may soon be having the first female president in America.
Well, the president of the United States of America and his vice Mike Pence are still healthy and strong and they have been no positive test to this corona virus pandemic yet, even doe key members of Trump’s cabinet has contracted the deadly Covid-19 virus. the facts still remain that if the president and his vice contract the deadly Corona virus and are incapacitated as a result of the infection, there would be need for a third person to take over the reign of government, no matter how long.
Now because of this corona virus pandemic and the ease to which it’s been transmitted and not forgetting the recent outbreak, this succession act mite see the light of day, this is mainly because of the Act provides that the succession provisions would be effective when or if a president dies or resigns from office, removal from office, inability or failure to qualify and there is neither a Vice President to discharge the powers and duties of the office of Presidency.
It doesn’t stop here because the Act also provides that if the speaker of the House and the president pro tempore of the Senate are also unable to fill the role, the presidency would fall to a succession of Cabinet secretaries, but Nancy Pelosi won’t let this happen with the measures she has put in place
The third person in line is the current Speaker of the House, which is the person of Democratic Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi. Now you see how everything will play out? We can only wait and see if Nancy Pelosi will succeed with her plans.
For those in doubt if this will happen, you never know, this Corona virus season is rigged with surprises so nothing can be ruled out just yet. If President Trump doesn’t stay safe or shield himself from Covid-19, he may have a hand in enthroning the first woman president to ever rule the United States of America.
