Trump blasts Pence's decision not to object to electoral count

United States President Donald Trump criticized on Wednesday US Vice President Mike Pence after he refused to overturn the Electoral College's vote earlier during the day.

"Mike Pence didn’t have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our Country and our Constitution, giving States a chance to certify a corrected set of facts, not the fraudulent or inaccurate ones which they were asked to previously certify. USA demands the truth," Trump wrote in a tweet shortly after Congress ajdourned.

Pence issued a statement earlier during the day, stressing that he is reluctant to claim "unilateral authority to determine which electoral votes should be counted and which should not."
