Republicans lost the House, Senate and the White House. But one person who cannot accept the reality is Donald Trump and nearly two months after the results of the election were announced, Trump still trying to find ways to undo the results. His next target is Mike Pence.
Vice President Mike Pence told President Donald Trump on Tuesday that he did not believe he had the power to block congressional certification of Joe Biden’s victory in the presidential election despite Trump’s baseless insistence that he did, people briefed on the conversation said.
Pence’s message, delivered during his weekly lunch with the president, came hours after Trump further turned up the public pressure on the vice president to do his bidding when Congress convenes Wednesday in a joint session to ratify Biden’s Electoral College win.–
