If Donald Trump That former vice president is right Mike pence May have Throw out the results of the 2020 presidential election with one hand, That means the current vice president Kamala Harris Will be selected Next President, equipped person in charge. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.).
Pence did not have the right to unilaterally choose a president, regardless of the voter’s choice, and Harris would not.
However, Lofgren was ridiculing Trump’s claim. If it is up to the Vice President, not the voters of the country, to choose the next president, the party will never leave the Oval Office.
“I think the former president is saying that the vice president will choose the next president,” Lofgren said on Sunday at CNN. (Check out the video above at 1:40.) “In that case, Kamala Harris will preside over. [next] Count [electoral] vote. I think he says she will choose who the next president will be. “
Lofgren, a member of the House Select Commission who investigated the riots at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, added with a smile: He would be a joke. “
He didn’t sound like a joke. Pence “had the right to change the outcome” of the presidential election, Trump said in a statement on Sunday.. “Unfortunately he didn’t use that power, he could have overturned the election!”
MSNBC’s Ali Melber challenged Trump’s former trade adviser earlier last month Peter NavarroHe also boldly discussed plans to overthrow the presidential election.
Melver is Navarro Leverage the remaining “power of incumbent losers” “Reverse” Trump’s defeat. “Are you aware? You are talking about a coup?? “Melver asked.
“If the current administration could revoke the election results through the president or vice president … many would try to maintain power,” Melber added. “We have an entire system designed to thwart that idea.”
Trump critics on Twitter liked the idea that Harris would choose the next president. It’s the same as the former president thinks it should be.
