A 'secret' discussion between Vice President Mike Pence and President Donald Trump has been leaked and it reveals how Trump slammed Pence. The conversation took place during the final days of the administration. Two people who were aware of the call spoke to the New York Times and said that Trump had said a lot to Pence in order to convince him to help change the results of the 2020 election.

Trump repeatedly tried to encourage Pence to refuse to certify the results of the Electoral College vote that eventually confirmed Joe Biden to be the winner of the election that had taken place in November. Pence revealed that his role was largely ceremonial and he was only there to announce which ballots went where. Before Trump left for the Capitol, he had reportedly told Pence, "you can either go down in history as a patriot, or you can go down in history as a p***y." It is said that Pence had looked into whether he had the power to intervene or not but his counsel explained that he did not.

Pence eventually put out a statement saying that he would allow the Electoral College vote count to go ahead as had been anticipated. He wrote a three-page letter which was addressed to the members of Congress and said: "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."

The result left Trump infuriated and he took to Twitter to share that Pence did not have the guts to go through with his wishes. Trump had written, "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!"

Many social media users commented on the reports of what Trump had allegedly said. One such user shared, "Well Pence did go down in history as a patriot that night and the only p**** was the one pacing in our WH watching TV." Another added, "I’d like to be able to say that 'words' can never hurt me. And it’s blatantly misogynistic. But I’d honestly get internally angry if someone said that to me. I’d most likely say something regrettable back. Somehow I sense Pence just bowed his head and replied with silence." Yet another added, "I was just thinking, the past couple months must have been very difficult for the VP, and I can’t imagine it’s even tolerable since the attack. Maybe he’s just doing the best he can to get to the end without another fire."



 



 



 

We had earlier reported that Pence used House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-CA) own words against her in a letter on Tuesday, January 12. He explained why he wouldn't invoke the 25th Amendment to remove President Donald Trump from office. The letter follows reports that Democrats have introduced an article of impeachment against the president over the riot and violence which broke out last week where Trump supporters breached the Capitol.
