A bipartisan Senate committee has connected seven deaths to the attack, which delayed a joint session of Congress to certify Biden’s win by several hours.Trump, the 2019 world champion, took advantage with 49 in reply before a long brown after some safety exchanges sealed the frame.And the endorsement comes a couple of months after Mike Pence , in a rare stand against the former president, rejected Trump’s claim that Pence could have reversed Trump’s election defeat during the joint congressional session that was temporarily interrupted by the Capitol insurrection.At one point that day, Secret Service agents tried to drive Pence away from the Capitol, where he was tasked with leading lawmakers’ certification of the presidential election results.But Pence wouldn’t leave, signaling his opposition to the mob’s goal of keeping Trump in power, the Maryland Democratic congressman , who serves on a House panel investigating the Capitol attack, said recently.It was the same story, however, after the interval as Trump prospered from range and Williams suffered another crucial in-off to dent his recovery hopes.“President Trump is wrong,” Pence told the conservative Federalist Society in February, according to National Public Radio (NPR).Trump won a messy fifth frame and came out on top of another safety battle in the sixth.

“I had no right to overturn the election.The presidency belongs to the American people and the American people alone.Trump was looking increasingly confident and produced breaks of 53 and 41 to extend his lead to six, leaving Williams with a mountain to climb in Friday’s second session.And frankly, there is no idea more un-American than the notion any one person could choose the American president.” When asked later about his brother’s remarks, Greg Pence stopped well short of agreeing with them, highlighting how reluctant Republicans are to speak out against Trump while it remains unclear how much power his still-coveted endorsements carry.“I stand by my brother and always will, and I’ll let him speak for himself about his remarks,” Greg Pence told NPR, in part.

Read more Greg Pence earlier this month also voted against referring criminal contempt charges against Trump aides Peter Navarro and Dan Scavino to the US justice department.Congress ultimately ended up making the referral.That stance on Friday helped the Republican congressman net a statement from Trump reading: “Greg Pence has my Complete and Total Endorsement!” Trump also hailed Greg Pence for opposing Biden’s immigration policies on the southern border, keeping guns accessible, opposing abortion and supporting the military.Greg Pence’s office didn’t immediately issue a statement in response to Trump’s endorsement.The former oil executive and Marine Corps veteran is facing a challenger in James Dean Alspach in the Republican primary on 3 May.

The victor would advance to an 8 November runoff against the winner of the Democratic primary, whose candidates are George Thomas Holland and Cynthia Wirth.Topics.

Go away Trump Does DT not go Hunting? I heard that one could shoot things in a defined area whilst outside Trump would endorse his own shadow ( does he have on- just asking) if he believed it would get him re-elected. Sorted And now we know why Trump refused to accept defeat because Putin counted on him to winn the election so that USA would let him have a walk over in Ukraine 😡 what a terrible shame that would have been for USA and Nato 😡
