While campaigning in Georgia on Monday night ahead of the crucial Senate runoff elections, Trump told the crowd that he hopes Vice-President Mike Pence “comes through for us” when Congress meets to certify Biden’s victory on Wednesday.
“I hope that 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,” Trump said. “Of course, if he doesn’t come through, I won’t like him quite as much. Nah, Mike is a great guy. He’s a wonderful man and a smart man and a man that I like a lot.”
“But he’s going to have a lot to say about it and you know one thing with him, you’re going to get straight shots. He’s going to call it straight,” Trump said.
Trump did not say what exactly he expects Mike Pence to do but in reality, there is nothing he can do to stop Joe Biden from becoming president.
Pence’s role is just to oversee the certification of the Electoral College results showing Biden won. He does not have the power to reject the results or otherwise affect the outcome.
Louie Gohmert already tried to ask the courts to give Mike Pence the legal authority to determine which electors get counted, that case was thrown out in court.
