The President’s challenge to the Electoral College is running out of time.
On Wednesday, a joint session of Congress will meet to certify the results.
And Donald Trump hit this Republican Senator who betrayed him with a warning that no one could believe.
Republican Senator Josh Hawley was the first to announce he would object to the results of a state and force a debate and vote on certification of the results.
Hawley was joined by Ted Cruz – both of whom are expected to run for President in 2024 if Donald Trump does not seek another term.
Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton is also positioning himself for a White House run and the Fake News Media long portrayed him as a “Trump loyalist.”
But on Monday, Cotton announced that he would vote to certify the results of Joe Biden’s election.
In his statement, Cotton argued that while he agreed there was voter fraud, Congress did not have the power to reject the results of the election.
“Nevertheless, the Founders entrusted our elections chiefly to the states – not Congress. They entrusted the election of our president to the people, acting through the Electoral College – not Congress,” Cotton added.
“And they entrusted the adjudication of election disputes to the courts – not Congress. Under the Constitution and federal law, Congress’s power is limited to counting electoral votes submitted by the states.”
President Trump was furious.
On social media, the President blasted Cotton as voting to certify the results of a fraudulent election and warmed that Republican voters “never forget” in a hint that by opposing the President, Cotton doomed any chances of mounting a successful Presidential campaign in 2024.
“How can you certify an election when the numbers being certified are verifiably WRONG. You will see the real numbers tonight during my speech, but especially on JANUARY 6th. @SenTomCotton Republicans have pluses & minuses, but one thing is sure, THEY NEVER FORGET!” the President wrote.
