Trump slams Pence for refusing to interfere in certification of election

WASHINGTON — US President Donald Trump blasts Mike Pence after his vice president refused to intervene in the certification by Congress of Democrat Joe Biden’s election victory.

“Mike Pence didn’t have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our Country and our Constitution,” Trump tweets. “USA demands the truth!”

Trump’s statement comes after Pence, in defiance of the president, said he would not stop the certification by Congress of Biden’s victory.
