Former President Donald Trump took shots back at his former Vice President Mike Pence on Friday after Pence said that Trump was “wrong” in guaranteeing he had the capacity as VP to overturn the 2020 election, calling the idea of one man electing the president “un-American.”
In a blazing assertion Friday night, Trump condemned Pence and his “unwitting advisors,” referring to the former VP as “a programmed transport line” for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for declining to mediate in Biden’s election.
“Just saw Mike Pence’s assertion on the way that he reserved no option to do anything regarding the Electoral Vote Count, other than being a programmed transport line for the Old Crow Mitch McConnell to get Biden chosen President as fast as could be expected,” the ex-president composed.
“All things considered, the Vice President’s position is certifiably not a programmed transport assuming clear indications of voter misrepresentation or inconsistencies exist. That is the reason the Democrats and RINOs are working hotly together to change the very regulation that Mike Pence and his unwitting advisors utilized on January 6 to say he had no way out.
“The explanation they need it changed is on the grounds that they presently say they don’t need the Vice President to reserve the option to guarantee a honest vote.
“In other words, I was right and everyone knows it,” Trump said. “If there is fraud or large scale irregularities, it would have been appropriate to send those votes back to the legislature to figure it out. The Dems and RINOs want to take that right away.”
Trump slammed his VP in front of the Jan. 6 Capitol Hill revolt for not having the “courage” to dismiss affirmed balloters from Arizona, Georgia and Pennsylvania for then-President-elect Joe Biden. Trump claimed he lost because of far reaching voter misrepresentation, yet courts dismissed his claims.
Since the riots, during which the horde changed “Hang Mike Pence” as they entered the Capitol, the two’s relationship soured.
At a get-together of the Federalist Society in Orlando Florida this week, Pence, who might be looking at a 2024 official mission, said he has “no right to upset the election.
“I heard this week that President Trump said I had the right to overturn the election. President Trump is wrong. I had no right to overturn the election,” Pence, 62, said.
