CBC News reports:
The New York Times and other news outlets reported Tuesday that Pence told Mr. Trump he doesn’t believe he possesses the power to block Congress’ certification of President-elect Joe Biden’s win. On Tuesday night, Mr. Trump called that report “fake news.”
Mr. Trump, in a statement issued by the Trump campaign, claimed he and Pence are on the same page. Pence has not issued such a statement independently.
“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,” Mr. Trump said in the statement.
If Vice President @Mike_Pence comes through for us, we will win the Presidency. Many States want to decertify the mistake they made in certifying incorrect & even fraudulent numbers in a process NOT approved by their State Legislatures (which it must be). Mike can send it back!
