Twitter has removed a tweet from President Trump that called out Mike Pence for not rejecting Electoral Votes.
President Trump at the “Save America Rally” made himself clear that he hoped Vice President Pence would have the courage to reject fraudulent Electoral Votes.
Pence then released a statement saying he would have no part in objecting to any Electoral votes.
President Trump responded to Pence’s statements and actions in the joint session of Congress by saying “Mike Pence didn’t have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our Country and our Constitution”.
Twitter immediately removed it and falsely stated that his Tweet encouraged the siege of the Capitol Building.
Here is the tweet that got deleted:
Trump takes aim at his own VP Mike Pence: “[He] didn’t have the courage to do what should have been done.”

Yahoo News dropped these details:
The president and his allies have been urging Pence to reject the 2020 results in Congress. As vice president, Pence presides over the final step in certifying the outcome of the election.
“Mike Pence didn’t have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our Country and our Constitution, giving States a chance to certify a corrected set of facts, not the fraudulent or inaccurate ones which they were asked to previously certify. USA demands the truth!” Trump said.
Earlier in the day, Pence issued a statement that signaled he would not adhere to Trump’s impossible demands.
“It is my considered judgment that my oath to support and defend the Constitution constrains me from claiming unilateral authority to determine which electoral votes should be counted and which should not,” Pence said.
Many Patriots took to Twitter and let Pence know how they feel toward Pence:
Mike Pence is a TRAITOR to the Republic for which it stands!

Fox 59 News added this tidbit:
Trump tweeted his disapproval of Pence after returning to the White House.
“Mike Pence didn’t have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our Country and our Constitution, giving States a chance to certify a corrected set of facts, not the fraudulent or inaccurate ones which they were asked to previously certify,” he wrote. “USA demands the truth!”
While Pence allies had made clear that he intended to defy Trump, they also understood that it was likely to enrage Trump and risked compromising Pence’s own political future. Pence is eyeing a run for the White House in 2024 and had banked on his years of loyalty to Trump to help him stand out in what is expected to be a crowded field.
Vice President Pence didn’t display any courage during the certification of the 2020 election.
He simply went through the motions and in doing so he made it absolutely clear what he stands for now.
