“On January 20, 2021, Joe Biden will be inaugurated president of the United States. The states will count the votes that they have in a timely fashion,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in an interview with MSNBC. She was responding to a question of what the Democrats would do if Trump prematurely declared victory on election night.
“The easiest thing for [Trump] to do is to stand up like a man and accept the results of an election of the American people,” Pelosi continued. “For him to make these kinds of statements shows his lack of patriotism, his undermining of our elections while he allows foreign countries like his friend [Russian President Vladimir] Putin to undermine the integrity of our election, he himself is doing it as well.”
