Trump has simply publicly threatened Mike Pence on the DC Rally

Trump openly threatened his own Vice President, Mike Pence, implying that Pence must do “the right thing” and overturn the election.


Trump goes all mob bosses and threatens Mike Pence when he tells his own vice president to do the right thing and overturn the election. (Pence cannot overturn the election).

Trump said:

And he looked at Mike Pence and I hope Mike will do the right thing. Hopefully. Hopefully. Because if Mike Pence does the right thing, we’ll win the election. All he has to do – and that is – is from number one, or certainly one of the best constitutional attorneys in our country. He has the absolute right to do this. Should protect our country, support our country, support our constitution and protect our constitution. States want to vote again. The states were betrayed. You received incorrect information. You voted on it. Now they want to re-certify.

You want it back. All Vice President Pence has to do is send it back to states for recertification and we will become President and you are the happiest people.

Everything Donald Trump said was wrong or a lie. Pence does not have the power to send the elections back to the states. States cannot hold a do-over. Pence is only there to announce the count. Mike Pence knows this, which is why he plans to obey the Constitution. Republicans will object and hold their votes, but there is nothing Mike Pence can do.

Trump openly threatens his own vice president with something he cannot.

Donald Trump’s year-long mental breakdown is finally over.
