Vice President Mike Pence has told outgoing US President Donald Trump that he does not have the authority to challenge Joe Biden’s victory in the presidential election. This information has been given by a leading newspaper, which Trump has described as “fake news”. “New York Times” reported on Tuesday that Pence gave the above message to him during his weekly lunch with President Trump. Pence will preside over the US Senate on Wednesday. The Senate will get electoral colleges from every state that will decide the winner in the presidential election.
Biden of the Democratic Party defeated Trump in the November presidential election. Biden received 306 electoral colleges while Trump received 232 electoral colleges. Partner Biden has received 70 lakh votes more than Trump. The Trump of the Republican Party has not accepted defeat in the election and has made unverified claims that the presidential election was rigged. People associated with his campaign have filed dozens of cases in US courts and challenged the election results but these cases did not last in the courts.
“The New York Times” quoted unidentified people as saying, “Vice President Mike Pence told President Trump on Tuesday that despite Mr. Trump’s baseless claims he did not have the powers that led to Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s victory in the presidential election. Stop Congress (Parliament) from doing authentication. “
Trump, however, described the report as “fake news” and said that Pence had never told him what the news said. According to a statement issued by Trump’s campaign, “Today, the New York Times report about Mike Pence’s remarks to me is fake news.” He never said that. There is complete agreement between the Vice President and me that there is power to take action. “
Trump claimed that the elections held on November 3 were corrupt and not in accordance with the constitution. At the behest of local judges and political leaders, not at the behest of the public representatives, large-scale changes in electoral norms were made. This means elections were illegal. Trump said, “Our Vice President has many options under the US Constitution. He can non-certify the results (of election) or send the results back to the states for change and certification. He can disprove the illegal and corrupt results and send them to the House of Representatives to form a state one vote table. “
Trump said on Twitter Tuesday, “The Vice President has the right to dismiss fraudulently elected electoral.” In another tweet, he said that if the Vice President does so, he will win the presidential election. Trump claimed that many states want him to rectify the mistake he made by certifying the wrong number, as his state legislature did not approve it. Pence has not yet publicly released a statement, but his staff says the vice-president supports the MPs’ right to object and demand a debate.
Pence’s Chief of Staff Mark Short said in a statement, “Vice President Pence shares the concerns of millions of Americans over fraud and irregularity in the last election.” According to the “New York Times” news, Pence has tried to tell Trump that he does not have the rights to reverse the election results, as Trump believes.
