President Donald Trump berated Vice President Mike Pence in a shocking phone call recently.
According to media reports, Trump cursed Pence just hours before the Capitol riots in DC. In a stern and furious voice. the US President demanded that Pence overthrow the current election results. The phone call took place on January 6th, just a few moments before the massive mob of Pro-Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol. This was the same moment when Mike Pence presided over Congress’s joint session.
The call aimed to serve as the last plea of ultimate desperation when it came to turning the tables for the Republicans in Trump’s favor. Unfortunately, it didn’t quite go as Trump planned.
Meanwhile, details regarding the phone call revealed how Trump mentioned to Pence that ‘you can either go down in history as a patriot or a p***y.
The rather bold and shocking warning didn’t seem to have any effect on the vice president.Since day one, Pence has remained Donald Trump’s number 2 when it came to loyalty and exhibiting quiet behavior. However, he reached a breaking point last week.
Critics mentioned how Pence most likely realized that a refusal was probably in his best interest. After all, it was an illegal plan by Trump and that meant not going forward with him would cost him his spot in the Trump camp, eliminating any further chance of a shot at future presidential plans.
It’s no surprise that Trump’s pressuring never ended. For days, Mike Pence held his peace as Trump constantly pressurized him to intervene in Congress. In the same way, he tried his best to pull out all the stops imaginable to block the certification for the election results.
After all of Trump’s election lawsuits went out the window, he slowly began to realize that Mike Pence had a lot of power when it came to making a selection for the next US president.
