Trump Delivers Warning To Sen. Tom Cotton for Refusing To Challenge Electoral Vote Count

President Donald Trump is taking a swing at Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.).

The president continued to push unsubstantiated claims of widespread voter fraud, tweeting, “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.”

Trump added a warning for Cotton, “[Tom Cotton] Republicans have pluses [and] minuses, but one thing is sure, THEY NEVER FORGET!”

See Trump’s tweet below:

Trump’s remarks come after Cotton rejected the push by at least 12 of his Republican colleagues in the Senate to challenge the Electoral College count during the joint session of Congress on Jan. 6, as IJR reported.

Cotton said in a statement that while he has concerns about “irregularities” in the 2020 presidential election, “I will not oppose the counting of certified electoral votes on January 6.”

He wrote:

“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. 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.”

“If Congress purported to overturn the results of the Electoral College, it would not only exceed that power, but also establish unwise precedents,” Cotton added.

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) also came out against the plans by several Republican lawmakers, calling it an “egregious ploy” in rejecting electors, which he says, “may enhance the political ambition of some, but dangerously threatens our Democratic Republic.”

Trump has refused to concede the election, even after the Electoral College vote affirmed Joe Biden’s win.

Trump also wrote in another tweet on Monday, “The ‘Surrender Caucus’ within the Republican Party will go down in infamy as weak and ineffective ‘guardians’ of our Nation, who were willing to accept the certification of fraudulent presidential numbers!”

Ahead of the joint session on Wednesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) wrote a letter to her Democratic colleagues on Sunday, where she said, “Over the years, we have experienced many challenges in the House, but no situation matches the Trump presidency and the Trump disrespect for the will of the people.”

She also wrote, “If a written objection is lodged by a Member of the House and Senate, we then meet in our individual chambers for up to two hours of debate. Only then will Members be recognized to speak on the Floor. Unless both the House and Senate vote to reject the Electoral count for the state in question, the objection is rejected.”

  1. i totally agree with you mike, like i have said so many times, what part of YOU LOST! does that dodo trump NOT understand

  2. When are these pathetic Republicans going to stand up to trump show some balls and say FU.

  3. You trumpturds are a broken record. Supply some proof. Contrary to what you think, posting something, no matter HOW many times you post it, doesn’t make it true…lol

  4. Everyone down deep knows the democrats controlled and stole the election. But with the MSM Hollywood and academia the forces are very strong. The lure of freebies is too great. The country loses

    1. Georgia is a Republican state. Republicans control the voter registration and vote counting mechanisms. It’s surprising (a little) that Georgia could have swung Democrat, but it’s beyond belief that Democrats could have conspired at all levels to sabotage the vote. Real conspiracies fall apart when they get big. If there was a conspiracy as big as Trump says, if hundreds of thousands of votes were taken away from him and given to Biden, as Trump says, then there’d be lots of evidence. The Republican Secretary of State of Georgia has looked, and hasn’t found evidence, beyond the unverified anecdotes a few Trump supporters repeat. The fraud doesn’t check out. The Georgia officials are honest. Trump lost.

    2. Everyone..??? No, Try something else Fascist. The American People (Those neither #45, nor his base have anything to do with)… did not steal any damned thing. Only the Tabloids for Fascist scum that you and your degenerate brethren go to for Truth exclaim such. Only the Nuggets of truth that Trump squeezes out of his pants leg for his bases dining pleasure claim such. Only the face dragging Traitor scum of Trump. Trumps Punks, exclaim such. And as far as you claim about freebies, shove it up your backside boy, that is another old and worn out line of BS from you stupid Fascist trash. Listen, go pack up Old Glory from the pole if you have the audacity to raise her in your hypocrisy, and tack her next to your toilet. Stop the sickening hypocrisy. Paper mache, BS “patriots” and Christ-Less worshipers of a bastardized gospel of accommodation are ALL Trumps trash represent.

  5. “You will see the real numbers tonight during my speech” King Donald The Loser

    Oh, wow, a SPEECH? That’s aMAzing, Your Highness! I will be sure to stay up and listen to it over and over. You realize that you have to at least convince a court, right?

    What a dummy.

  6. It happened in 2016 by the Dems so what’s the reason now? Same thing! If Fraud exists in any instance then it’s FRAUD. Trump WINS! Even now as we go to vote again tomorrow? Are we sure these votes aren’t fraudulent also. I say why vote if Fraud exist.

    1. Even if the November Georgia count gets given to King Donald The Loser he STILL loses the election.

      His whole effort is a sham, a grift. It doesn’t matter what he does, now. Georgia and all other states have already certified their local votes. The Electoral votes are what matter and everything will be officially over on Wednesday.

    2. You are correct. Fraud is fraud no matter how much or how little. And it should be of concern to anyone with ethics. For anyone who is concerned there are verifiable videos showing that happened. As well as sworn statements that appear to be tossed aside.

      1. Fraud is a serious offense, whether electoral fraud, or insurance fraud, or bank fraud, or tax fraud and it ALL should be investigated, right, Surely?

        Fortunately, NY is investigating his many economic fraud. As usual, the weak and feckless Democratic Party is going to look forward, not back, just like the weak Obama did with Bush 2.

      2. “Sworn” statements? Any verification of anybody willing to swear to it, to put themselves at risk of perjury for attesting to a lie?

    3. It did not happen in 2016 moron. It only “happened” in your Tabloids for Idiots, the National Enquirer like cat-box liners around the net that fed the pseudo-American scum of the red State trash. Brietbart, OANN, NewsMax, Alex Jones, Western Journalism, WND, Young Conservatives, Conservative Tribune, Conservative Press, Barbwire, The Federalist, Chicks on the Right, Being Conservative, Uncle Sams Misguided Children, Tacticalshit.Com (The real wording…), Jay Sekulow, Michael Savage, Cain, Geller, Levin, Leo Hohmann, AZPatriots, Trunews, The Heritage Foundation, BareNakedIslam, so called “Patriot” Militias” (Neo-Trash III%’ers) and other Fascist, Racist Bigots like ACT for America, the Oath Keepers and others Many many pages that were gleaned for those accusations of Closet Muslims, Deals with the Muslim Brotherhood, plots to destroy America with the help of the U.N., the Russians, Chinese, South Americans, Africans, and lets not forget how the “America Corps.” (which was/is a great opportunity for young folks) was twisted by their kind into an Anti-American group nick-named “Obamas Private Army…. ” and so on. Demanding the death penalty of his admin for “Treason”?? Etc. etc…. And they still do regardless of the Fact that their Lying as***es were debunked and tossed a number of times. And it goes on and on. Everything is “Fake News” (Because that POS Fascist As***le in the WH that they cheer says so), and at the same time #45 repeats bu****it of the same caliber as the sorry, self-righteous phonies. Their claims of “for Obama and others True Patriotism” “Faith in Christ” and dedication to God and Country are pure bu***hit. THey wave the Flag of this Great Nation of People, when they may as well take a dump on it, and have a group buttwipe with it. The disgrace of the complete Hypocrisy to everything they claim, their Hate, Fear and Rumor mongering, their racist bigotry, avarice IS a disgrace to this Country, its People, it’s History. No, their degenerate platform, that Liars Pulpit is NOT founded upon the “Faith and Values” of our noble Founders and Forefathers whose very names they drag through the gutter to the sewer thier platform was born in. Nope, I did not even vote for Obama, and am not a fan of Hillery but no one has to be to see, (As AMERICANS now do), the travesty of that Despot they applaud regardless of what he does. NOTHING for the People. Nothing, but a self-serving, pandering wannabe that plays to his equally degenerate, Fascist Nationalist followers. No, the Fascist Nationalist filth that follow that thing in the WH have no regard whatsover for “Truth” when it comes to #45, their claims of Christian faith, nor anything that tells them what they do not want to hear. The most PRIME Example is their despot himself… He is a known Liars Liar. He has Lied through his teeth ever since he was allowed to find a podium, and disgraces the Flags of this Country by being allowed in their vicinity, and his thralls fall down and worshiped him…
