Trump Says V.P. Pence ‘Could Have Overturned the Election’

President Donald Trump says Democrats’ efforts to pass legislation that would prohibit allowing the “vice president to change the results of the election” is proof Pence could have done so in the 2020 election.

QUICK FACTS:
  • Donald J. Trump released a statement on Sunday pointing to Democrats’ recent efforts to pass election law that would, according to Vox, “make it clear that a vice president is unable to discard election results, and thus unable to overturn an election.”
  • Trump argued that if U.S. vice presidents did not have the power to change presidential election results in the Senate, it would not make sense why Democrats are “desperately trying to pass legislation that will not allow the Vice President to change the results of the election.”
  • “Actually, what they are saying, is that Mike Pence did have the right to change the outcome,” Trump continued, adding “and they now want to take that right away. Unfortunately, he didn’t exercise that power, he could have overturned the Election!”
TRUMP’S FULL STATEMENT:

If the Vice President (Mike Pence) had “absolutely no right” to change the Presidential Election results in the Senate, despite fraud and many other irregularities, how come the Democrats and RINO Republicans, like Wacky Susan Collins, are desperately trying to pass legislation that will not allow the Vice President to change the results of the election? Actually, what they are saying, is that Mike Pence did have the right to change the outcome, and they now want to take that right away. Unfortunately, he didn’t exercise that power, he could have overturned the Election!”
