Big news coming from the White House!
President Trump just released a statement regarding Pence’s take on decertifying illegal Electoral votes.
Trump’s announcement comes hours after a fake news story from the New York Times was released that stated Pence met up with Trump and told him he doesn’t have the power to decertify the election.
Trump’s statement said, ” the Vice President and I are in total agreement that the Vice President has the power to act”.
The big question is will Pence act?

Fox News covered Trump’s big announcement:
President Trump on Tuesday said he and Vice President Mike Pence are “in total agreement” that the vice president “has the power to act” and block the certification of the 2020 presidential election results on Wednesday.
The president’s comments came after The New York Times on Tuesday reported that Pence, during a conversation with Trump, told him that he had no power to block the certification of the election results during the joint session of Congress on Wednesday.
“The New York Times report regarding comments Vice President Pence supposedly made to me today is fake news. He never said that,” Trump said in a statement Tuesday night. “The Vice President and I are in total agreement that the Vice President has the power to act.”
Later on in the night Trump had more to say about Pence and tweeted this:
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!

CBS News covered the story also:
President Trump claimed in a statement on Tuesday night he and Vice President Mike Pence are in “total agreement” on the vice president’s authority regarding the Electoral College count, after multiple news outlets reported Pence told Mr. Trump he lacks the power to alter the election results.
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.
NEW: Trump denies reports that Pence told him he lacks the power to overturn the election.

I don’t know about you but I remember a time when you could read the New York Times and they actually had investigative journalism.
Now it’s just run by liberals who no longer write truthful stories but instead they write propaganda.
