Sorry for delay - connection problems:
Trump has again said VP Pence “has to “come through for us” by sending the election “back to the states.”
Said he had just spoken to Pence and told him “it doesn’t take courage” to object but it would take courage to do
Also piled on Republicans who do not join the objection and urged the crowd to “primary the hell out of the ones” who do not fight.
Critiqued McConnell over the 2k stimulus, mocked Romney.
Said the crowd would “walk down to the Capitol” and that he would be with them.
Pool has no further information on that.
Check quotes against broadcast and transcript.
