Donald Trump has continued his efforts and desperately pushed forward his quest to remain in power. ) Put pressure on him to overturn the election results when the U.S. Congress convenes an election certification meeting on Wednesday.

At the joint meeting of the Senate and House of Representatives, the certification of election results is usually a ceremonial occasion, presided over by the vice president, and Pence’s job is to announce Joe Biden as the winner of the November election.

However, Trump made false statements on Tuesday, suggesting that Pence could use this occasion to invalidate the election results. Trump wrote on Twitter: “The vice president has the right to veto electors elected by fraud.” Trump’s intervention was connected to a rally in Georgia on Monday night, on the eve of two senator elections. The remarks made here echoed back and forth, and these two elections will determine which party can control the Senate. According to Trump, “I hope our great vice president…help us tide over the storm,” Trump said at the rally, “because if he doesn’t help us, I won’t like him that much.”

Electoral law experts denied Trump’s claim that Pence could prevent certification, and pointed out that if an objection is rejected by the Senate or House of Representatives, the objection is invalid.

The House of Representatives is controlled by Democrats, and most Republican senators have not joined Texas Senator Ted Curz and Missouri Senator Josh Hawley to prevent certification.

According to Reuters, a former White House official who was in regular contact with Pence’s team told Reuters that Pence plans to show his support for the president in a statement, but he will guard the limits of his role. Pence Chief of Staff Marc Short told Reuters on Monday that Pence “will stick to the Constitution and comply with regulations.”
