TRUMP ACCUSES REPUBLICAN SENATORS OF BEING DOCILE
By Godwin Ogar
The president of the United States, Donald Trump, has accused members of the GOP of failing to fight on his behalf in his efforts to upturn the November 3rd, 2020 presidential election in the US, which he believes was stolen.
The president specifically accused the Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, who is also a member of the Republican party, of not doing anything to reclaim the stolen mandate from the Democratic party.
The president’s legal actions in five swing states which saw the victory of his Democratic party rival, Joe Biden, has not yielded any positive impact as he seeks to present evidence of election fraud in order to upturn the outcome of the election in his favour.
The recent legal battle at the Supreme Court of the US against the presidential election in the state of Pennsylvania, doesn’t seem to have gone according to Trump’s expectation as the court has demonstrated that it was not in a hurry to hear the case until after the inauguration of the new president on January 20th.
However, President Trump still has a chance to be inaugurated as the 46th president of the US if the lawmakers (congress) comprising of the House of Representatives and the Senate, decide to upturn the victory of Joe Biden on January 6th, when they shall meet to assess the presidential election ahead of the inauguration of a new president which comes up on January 20th.
The president is optimistic, after showing evidence of election fraud, that congress will upturn the result of the election in his favour since, according to US laws, the lawmakers have the final say concerning the outcome of the presidential election, especially when there is evidence of electoral fraud. The Vice President of the US, who is the Senate President and also the head of the electoral college, has the privilege to veto the votes of the electors on January 6th, just a few days from today.
The Vice President, Mike Pence, has consistently aligned with President Donald Trump that there was evidence of substantial electoral fraud during the 2020 presidential election, such that had not been witnessed before.
