Here’s what we know so far…
Tempers have flared between President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence after Pence stepped forward and said that he would NOT vote against President-elect Joe Biden’s Electoral College certification.
Earlier today Pence released a long statement in which he said, “It is my considered judgement that my oath to support and defend the Constitution constrains me from claiming unilateral authority to determine which electoral votes should be counted and which should not.”
President Trump, who was furious with Pence’s decision, took to twitter and blasted Pence saying, “Mike Pence didn’t have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our Country and our Constitution, giving States a chance to certify a corrected set of facts, not the fraudulent or inaccurate ones which they were asked to previously certify. USA demands the truth!“
***The tweet now appears to have been removed by twitter***
Rumors began circulating on social media that Vice President Pence unfollowed President Trump on Twitter, however those rumors are untrue.
Was Mike Pence Wrong To Not Support Trump?
