President Donald J. Trump released a statement on Tuesday about the false news story from the New York Times, which was apparently placed to cause friction for Pence and give the established media a chance to harass the President and Vice President, ahead of a historic day in the Nationa’s Capitol where both men will be highly elevated.
“The New York Times report regarding comments Vice President Pence supposedly made to me today is fake news. He never said that. The Vice President and I are in total agreement that the Vice President has the power to act.
“The November 3rd election was corrupt in contested states. In particular, it was not following the Constitution in that they made large scale changes to election rules and regulations as dictated by local judges and politicians, not by state legislators. This means that it was illegal.
“Our Vice President has several options under the U.S. Constitution. He can decertify the results or send them back to the states for change and certification. He can also decertify the illegal and corrupt results and send them to the House of Representatives for the one vote for one state tabulation.“
Fox News reported on the statement and said:
“The president’s comments came after The New York Times on Tuesday reported that Pence, during a conversation with Trump, told him that he had no power to block the certification of the election results during the joint session of Congress on Wednesday.”
The New York Times has been in a constant battle with Trump and Pence since the 2016 campaign, often spreading rumor and gossip and discrediting their work. The New York Times also marginalizes the American people’s concerns as the media outlet has refused to cover the investigations or data that point to voter fraud by their favored candidate, Democrat Joe Biden.
It is unclear who reads the New York Times any longer in American, who is open to information and data, and not out looking to have their own narrative validated or who is, themselves, looking for a narrative to drive on their own media.
Obviously, the New York Times is not the hub of information for the American people, who overwhelmingly reject their strong-arm tactics to assist the Democrats in winning office and controlling the country.
Monday night, at an election-eve rally in Georgia for the two GOP senators running in the state’s twin U.S. Senate runoff contests, Trump told the large crowd of supporters, “I hope Mike Pence comes through for us, I have to tell you.”
“I hope that our great vice president – our great vice president, comes through for us. He’s a great guy. Of course, if he doesn’t come through, I won’t like him as much,” Trump emphasized.
Wednesday will be an interesting day.
