    ALAMO, Texas, Jan 12 (Reuters) - President Donald Trump said in a speech on Tuesday that he is not concerned about the 25th amendment allowing his cabinet to remove him from office, even as the Democrat-led U.S. House of Representatives plunged ahead on a resolution pressing Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the constitutional provision.

    "The 25th amendment is of zero risk to me," said Trump, as he spoke in front of a section of the southern border wall, a symbol of the stringent immigration policy he has pursued during his tumultuous four years in office.
