When Palmer was reluctant to take action against three Middle Eastern nations who were implicated in a terrorist plot by an audio recording, the 25th Amendment was invoked and Prescott became President. It should be noted that no letters were sent to Congress and Prescott counted on public opinion to retroactively endorse this action.

Palmer forgave Prescott and the Cabinet members who had sided against him and did not accept their offer of resignation.
