Trump was 'wrong' to claim VP could have overturned 2020 election: Mike Pence

WASHINGTON: Former US Vice President Mike Pence made it clear on Friday that he could not – and would not – overturn Donald Trump's victory in the 2020 presidential election.  On Jan. 6, when he witnessed the ceremonial certification of the 2020 election results, Trump's former vice president told a conservative group that he had "no right" to modify the outcome of the election.

The remarks were made during an event in Florida in reaction to former President Donald Trump's allegation that Pence "might" have changed the outcome of the White House campaign.

"President Donald Trump is incorrect. I didn't have the authority to reverse the election "Pence stated his opinion. "The presidency belongs to the people of the United States, and the people of the United States alone." "I had no right under the Constitution to influence the outcome of our election," the Republican from Indiana continued.

Trump has chastised Pence for certifying the Electoral College results of the 2020 presidential election, which Democrat Joe Biden won on January 6, 2021.

Trump's supporters stormed the Capitol that day, disrupting the process and culminating to his second impeachment by the House of Representatives just before his resignation.
