“I’m honest,” President Donald J. Trump told the crowd gathered at his feet on January 6th, 2021.
“All of us here today, do not want to see our election stolen from by the emboldened Radical-Left Democrats,” he pitched to the crowd.
Trump addressed the crowd as Vice President Mike Pence oversaw the historically peaceful transfer of power from one president to the next.
“I’m not hearing good things,” Trump told the crowd. “If Mike Pence does the right thing, we win the election,” Trump said. “All he has to do is send it (the vote) back to the states,” Trump continued.
But Pence didn’t send the votes back to the States for recounting. Pence, a man of honor, protected US Democracy and the Constitution.
