Trump’s Erratic Behavior Drawing Attention to the 25th Amendment

Trump’s erratic behavior while undergoing heavy drug treatment as a Covid-19 patient has been drawing attention to the U.S. 25th Constitutional Amendment. Currently, questions are being raised about succession, in the event that any President becomes mortally ill, or deemed not mentally fit to carry out his leadership functions.

That is why, it is widely believed that the 25th amendment provides answers on who would replace Trump and on who must make the initials steps to replace Trump; or any other future leaders who become physically or mentally incapacitated while still in office.

The Questions Raised about Trump’s Fitness to Lead the Nation

While Trump’s fitness, whether morally and/or mentally have already been raised as concerns before, the matter has become more important now that Trump is COVID-19 infected. In addition, he has been disregarding all safety measures in preventing the virus from spreading.

Several medical experts are also questioning the effects of the experimental medications that Trump has been receiving as cure for the infectious coronavirus disease, as they are being administered in combination with steroids and so called cocktail drug treatments.

After being discharged from the Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre last October 5, Trump has been disregarding his doctors’ medical advice. On the other, White House officials have been issuing conflicting and confusing statements about Trump’s medical conditions, particularly with regard to results of his COVID-19 tests, if any. As a matter of fact, after being discharged just a few days after contracting the virus, and while still infectious and coughing during Fox News interviews, Trump announced that he will resume his political rallies as planned.

What Does the 25th Amendment Require as Preliminary Actions When Replacing a President?

The 25th Amendment states that when the Vice President and the majority of the Cabinet, comprising at least 8 members, deduce that the current president is unfit to fulfill his presidential duties, they have the legal power to take action.

To be specific, this is stated in Section 4 of the amendment. Once a decision has been reached, it will be formally written and the memorandum forwarded to the Speaker of the House and to the Senate President. In the meantime, until Congressional decisions have been made, the incumbent vice president will temporarily replace the disabled or incapacitated president, whilst using the constitutional powers of a U.S. president.

If the president is against this action, it would be up to the Congressional lawmakers to resolve the issue with a vote. The required number of votes to keep the “acting president” in position is two-thirds of the majority vote by both Republican and Democratic parties. If the required number of votes isn’t reached, the president would reclaim his lost powers.

Obviously, with Vice President Pence clearly afraid of Trump and Republican Senate Speaker Mitch McConnel unashamedly stating that he will do everything he can to keep Trump in power despite his ongoing COVID-19 affliction, the 25 Amendment remains as a mere passage in the U.S. Constitution.

How WoW In China Was Affected By Local Politics

The political battle in China on online gaming has once again struck the performance of Blizzard’s World of Warcraft in the nation.
 
Together with operator NetEase declaring a suspension of fresh registrations for the match.
 
The move comes as the General Administration of Press and Publication had NetEase to quit charging people (who also search for WoW Classic accounts for sale) to play with the game as a consequence of “violations.”
 
NetEase has denied this is the situation, which the match complies with local legislation, but this newest occasion is the results of a continuing battle between government branches – together with both GAPP and the Ministry of Culture flexing muscles over who must oversee the internet space.
 
The warning bells rang in March last year as soon as the GAPP declared its intent to target non-Chinese names in a bid to “prevent the excessive penetration of overseas civilization among Chinese youth,” together with WoW cited especially by Digital Publishing Bureau manager Kou Xiaowei.
 
Since that time Blizzard chose to alter the operator in The9 into NetEase, but while the changeover happened the match was made to stay in a beta stage while the Chinese authorities processed a new license.
 
That took a few months to complete, but if the game has been relaunched in September, the GAPP’s “surly interference” (under the Ministry of Culture) generated more difficulties, and NetEase had been ordered to stop fresh registrations starting November.
 
 
The problems were cleared up at the start of the season. But, the match was untroubled for only a month before this brand fresh bump in the street.
 
Yet, Blizzard’s VP of International, Michael Ryder, denied the practice of finding the match back online. It is following the operator transition if speaking to GamesIndustry.biz this past calendar year.
 
“We are working hard to finish the transition we are working together with the authorities to get the last blessings. And we have made an enormous amount of improvement in a brief period in transitioning from one to another in visiting NetEase,” he said.
 
“Our servers have been up-and-running currently in a beta test period. Concurrency is operating well, thus we know there is interest with all the gamers. We have transitioned everyone around the Battle.Net account management program. And that is a major achievement for us too.
 
“We have updated the technology along with the host hardware throughout the board. And everybody’s very delighted with how that is performing. We feel good about the progress we have created. And we are going to receive the remaining blessings we all want in the not too distant future. And we’ll be back on the right course.”
