Trump Seeks Pence To Disqualify Votes For Biden | Ordered Vice President To Overturn The Election Results, Re-Electing Him As The US President
A furious US President Donald Trump, swearing that he will "fight like hell" to stay in the White House, called on his vice-president Mike Pence to "come through" to unlawfully grant him a term of office, even as his supporters began descending to the capital on Tuesday for rallies authorities fear would be disruptive and aggressive.
In Washington DC, a Democratic-run capital, officials mobilised the National Guard as Trump supporters, often from white nationalist and fascist parties, arrived in the city for the so-called "stop the steal" demonstrations outside the White House on Tuesday and Wednesday, claiming that "there are people intent on coming to our city armed."
But it is Trump who is seeking to rig the nomination by all sources except those in the conspiratorial radical right-wing circles. A hysteric Trump raised the argument at a rally in Georgia on Monday, asking Vice President Pence, who is charged with formally recognising Joe Biden as the winner of the presidential election certified by the states at a joint session of Congress on Thursday, to reject the verdict of the elections and acknowledge him the winner.
While aiming at the campaigning support for the Georgia's two republican Senate Candidates, the current US President Donald Trump said "I hope Mike Pence comes through for us. He's a great guy. Of course if he doesn't come through I won't like him quite as much."
In cities such as Atlanta, Georgia turning blue and Democratic on the basis of black and minority participation is seen as a pivotal moment in US politics, a reference to other states such as Texas heading the same way due to demographic shifts and the increasing claim of minorities as the polls.
Not only did Georgia administrators push back on Trump's baseless allegation of massive corruption, but at a press conference they followed it up with a point-by-point counter argument, practically calling the President a liar. Georgia's Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who is being praised for his bravery in standing up to Trump's intimidation, said he resisted 18 White House calls before he spoke reluctantly to the President. By declining to take his call, he is the second GOP official to openly diss Trump.
While most Republicans in Congress are expected to vote in favour of certifying the results, a small number claim they intend to object, including Senator Josh Hawley. But it's not predicted that their vote would affect the result.
Due to Covid-19 measures, Mr. Biden is due to be sworn into office as the 46th US President on 20 January at a scaled-back ceremony with only 1,000 tickets available.
