Former U.S. President Donald Trump on Saturday called Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell an “old crow”; while reiterating his criticism of his vice president, Mike Pence, for not having defended the idea of fraud in the November 2020 elections. Trump, who was president between 2017 and 2021, responded to Pence, who this Friday in Orlando (Florida) maintained that the former president was “wrong” since as vice president “he had no right to annul the elections.”

What’s In Statement?

“I just saw Mike Pence’s statement about the fact that he had no right to do anything about Electoral Vote Counting, other than being an automatic transmission belt of old Crow Mitch McConnell so that (current President Joe) Biden would be elected president as soon as possible,” Trump said in a note. In fact, the former president insisted on his accusations without evidence, already refuted by the US justice, indicating that “the position of Vice President is not an automatic transmission belt if there are obvious signs of electoral fraud or irregularities.”

“A great opportunity was missed, but not forever, and in the meantime our country is going to hell,” he added.The crossover of statements shows the open war within the Republican Party: with Trump supporters, on the one hand; and the more traditional apparatus of conservatives. Pence, in his speeches, interspersed optimistic messages about the results that Republicans will obtain in the upcoming election appointments with a defense of their role on January 6, 2021 and harsh criticism of the Joe Biden Administration.

Hours after the storming of the Capitol by a Trumpist mob, which left five dead and more than a hundred police officers injured, Pence presided over the legislative session in which Joe Biden’s victory in the electoral college was certified by a wide margin. Last week, Trump said he will pardon the crimes of those who stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, if he returns to power after the 2024 election, a suggestion that quickly drew pushback from members of his own party.

The former president, who has not yet announced whether he will run in the 2024 elections, has repeatedly rejected the prosecution of those who have been accused of violently attacking the Capitol to prevent Congress from certifying Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 elections.
