President Donald Trump ripped Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and GOP Sens. John Thune and John Cornyn as “weak and ineffective” the day before Jan. 6th electoral college vote certification.
McConnell, Cornyn, and Thune have all declared publicly that they will vote to certify the 2020 election on Jan. 6th in favor of Democrat Joe Biden. Other GOP Sens. who have stated that they will not object to certification include Tom Cotton of Arkansas and Susan Collins of Maine.
However, a number of GOP Senators have committed to objecting to the certification of results. Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri was the first to publicly commit to doing so (and has been threatened by ANTIFA for doing so). Sen. Ted Cruz is leading a delegation of eleven Republican senators that include Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, and Tommy Tuberville of Alabama that will object to the certification of results unless there is an emergency 10-day audit of the election results.
The thousands of people Trump is referring to in his tweet are supporters who have already begun to flood Washington, D.C. in protest of the 2020 election. Numerous videos popped up on social media platforms showcasing Trump supporters flocking to D.C.
Trump announced that he will be speaking to the crowd of supporters who have taken their time to travel to D.C. and show their support for him.
