If Trump does somehow get convicted and removed from office (which is an extremely long shot), a new VP would need to be selected as well, as per the 25th Amendment. Unlike cabinet and judicial appointments which are only approved by the Senate, the new VP must be approved by a majority of both Houses of Congress, which would mean the Democrats would have to approve of the choice as well.

I say this because of all the stupid memes I see claiming that Pence could simply appoint Trump as a VP, and ones which go further to say that Pence would then resign and Trump would ascend back into the Presidency.
