Vice President Mike Pence will preside over a joint session of Congress starting Wednesday at noon.

His role is to open the certificates of the electoral votes from each state and present them to the appointed “tellers” from the House and Senate in alphabetical order. After all electoral votes are counted, Pence will announce the presidential winner.

President Donald Trump has put pressure on Pence to overturn the election results in his favor. Tuesday night, Trump said that he and Pence “are in total agreement that the Vice President has the power to act.”

This statement came after The New York Times reported that Pence told Trump he had no power to block the certification of the election results on Wednesday.

Trump released a statement Tuesday night saying it was “fake news.”

“The New York Times report regarding comments Vice President Pence supposedly made to me today is fake news. He never said that. The Vice President and I are in total agreement that the Vice President has the power to act.”

“If Vice President Mike Pence comes through for us, we will win the Presidency,” Trump said Tuesday night on Twitter.

“He can decertify the results or send them back to the states for change and certification,” Trump said. “He can also decertify the illegal and corrupt results and send them to the House of Representatives for the one vote for one state tabulation.”

At an election eve rally in Georgia Monday night, Trump spoke to a crowd of supporters, “I hope Mike Pence comes through for us, I have to tell you.”

“I hope that our great vice president – our great vice president, comes through for us. He’s a great guy. Of course, if he doesn’t come through, I won’t like him as much,” he continued.

According to the Associated Press, Pence does not have the power under congressional or constitutional rules to govern the count.

However, more than 100 House Republicans and a dozen Senate Republicans, including Sen. Josh Hawley, have said they will support Trump and challenge the electoral votes in battleground states.

Trump is expected to speak in D.C. at 11 a.m. EST at the “Save America March.”

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
