President Donald Trump stated on Wednesday that he will “never give up” and “never concede” the presidential election, promising he would “stop the steal,” all the while applying copious amounts of pressure to Vice President Pence to “do the right thing” and essentially decertify election results.
Trump was speaking at the “Save America March” in D.C., just ahead of a joint session of Congress set to certify the results of the 2020 presidential election.
“We do not want to see our election victory stolen by radical left Democrats, that’s what they’re doing, and stolen by the fake news media, that’s what they’ve done and what they’re doing,” the president stated.
“We will never give up and never concede,” Trump went on to say. “We will stop the steal.”
The president touted the crowds of supporters who traveled to Washington for pro-Trump rallies across the city Wednesday on the sidelines of the Electoral College certification in Congress.
“If Mike Pence does the right thing, we win the election,” Trump said. “All he has to do, this is from the No. 1, or certainly, one of the top constitutional lawyers in our country, he has the absolute right to do it,” Trump said.
“We are supposed to protect our country and support our Constitution,” Trump said. “States want to revote. The states got defrauded, they were given false information and now they want it back.”
He added: “All Pence has to do is send it back to the states…and we become president, and you are the happiest people.”
The president has increased the pressure on Pence over the last few hours, going so far as to tweet out on Wednesday: “Do it Mike, this is a time for extreme courage!”
President Trump then went on to tell Pence that if he didn’t take action he would “be very disappointed in you.”
Guess we’ll have to wait and see what happens, right? It’s going to be a bumpy ride.
