President Donald Trump let it all out during the Save America March in Washington, D.C.
Trump addressed a crowd of thousands of supporters today, asserting once again that the 2020 election was stolen from him and that he “won in a landslide.”
“We’re leading Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia by hundreds of thousands of votes,” Trump said. “Then late in the evening or early in the morning, boom these explosions of bullshit. And all of a sudden, it started to happen.”
The president took it a step further and implored Vice President Mike Pence to send the electoral college votes in disputed swing states back to the state legislatures to re-certify their votes. Jenna Ellis, one of Trump’s lawyers, explained the steps for this process to Just The News. It would involve Pence not opening the votes from the six disputed states. He would then ask the state legislatures to “confirm which of the two slates of electors have in fact been chosen in the manner the legislature has provided for under Article II, Section 1.2 of the U.S. Constitution.”
“I hope Mike is going to do the right thing,” Trump said. “I hope so. Because if Mike Pence does the right thing, we win the election…states want to re-vote. The states got defrauded. They were given false information. They voted on it. Now they want to re-certify. They want it back. All Vice President Pence has to do is send it back to the states to re-certify, and we become president and you are the happiest people.”
Yesterday, Pennsylvania Republican legislators sent a letter to Leaders Kevin McCarthy and Mitch McConnell asking them to “delay certification” of the state’s electoral college votes due to issues regarding election integrity.
However, Pence released a statement saying he does not believe that he has the power to “accept or reject electoral votes unilaterally.”
“The presidency belongs to the American people,” said Pence in the statement. “And the American people alone.”
