President Trump, President Elect Biden, VP Pence, and The Numbers

Dear readers, in my home country, presidential battles are still in effect days before the Presidential Inauguration takes place on the 20th of January, 2021.

After much wait, after much fight, after much doubt, after much light, the certification of the new 47th United States President was confirmed and certified.

Wait, there is another question in the air: if President Trump is removed, will Vice President Pence become the 47th President of the United States? or will VP Pence be considered the end line of the 46th presidency, and Biden continue to be named and recorded in history as the 47th President of the United States?

History tells us that in 1841, after the death of the 9th President of the United States, William Henry Harrison, his Vice-President, John Tyler, became the 10th US President.

My dear readers, as many of you may know, there is a powerful Constitution in the United States. This document is so powerful that people have died defending it. One example is the Oath people make when they join the US military: I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed.

Article II of this powerful document explains who is eligible to become president of the United States and, under what circumstances the incumbent President may be replaced by his or her Vice President. I did not see where, in Article II or another area in the Constitution, mentions anything about the number recorded in history of the Presidential Ticket.

According to Article II of the US Constitution, Congress has the authority to impeach and remove The President, Vice President, and all civil officers of the United States upon a determination that such officers have engaged in treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors. If you have been following the news on television, articles online, and social media, the current presidency has gone through many controversies; from public presidential behavior to those who believe and those who do not believe in what has been publicly exposed during the last 4 years, to include invoking Martial Law before the next Presidential Inauguration happens.

To my Global readers, Martial Law in the United States has to do with substituting civilian rule for military law, temporarily. Please, do not confuse Martial Law with Military Justice. Each military branch in the United States has its own justice system. However, like it is mentioned in the Oath every person makes when joining the armed forces, military members will obey the orders of the President of the United States and officers appointed.

Well, now going back to what Ticket number will Vice-President Pence be if declared President for the rest of the current presidential term. What do you think it will be, 46th or 47th?
