President Donald Trump said he’s not at risk of being removed from office after encouraging supporters who went on to attack the U.S. Capitol last week -- but warned that Democrats’ efforts to oust him could backfire on President-elect Joe Biden.

“The 25th Amendment is of zero risk to me but will come back to haunt Joe Biden and the Biden administration,” Trump said Tuesday near Alamo, Texas, referring to a constitutional amendment that lays out a process for the president’s cabinet to remove him. He didn’t elaborate.
