Trump promised he would not concede this race.
And so far, he’s continued to be a man of his word.
Yesterday, the Blaze shared a conversation in which the President told Glenn Beck he had no plans of throwing in the towel. Why would he? It’s been a dog fight for four long years.

Today, Trump stood his ground. And things haven’t died down yet. In fact, crowds stormed the White House as Congress worked to carry out the biggest miscarriage of justice in generations.
The view of Trump supporters is incredible. And undeniable.

As expected, Arizona representatives want to see the states electoral votes flipped to Trump.
As The Hill notes:
Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) objected to recording his home state’s Electoral College tally, triggering a debate and votes in the House and Senate.
After there were no objections to the tallies in Alabama and Alaska, both won by Trump, Gosar rose to object to the tally in Arizona, where President-elect Joe Biden won in a tight vote.
Vice President Pence, who is presiding over the joint session, asked Gosar if his objection was in writing and joined by a senator, a requirement to trigger the debate and vote.
Gosar said it was and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) chimed in with his objection.
Republicans supportive of the move then stood to applaud Gosar.
However, before this article was even written, protesters stormed the capitol.

If you’re not watching the play by play, you need to be! Because there is no possible way to explain the many things happening today. Sadly, violence erupted. One person was reportedly shot. The Virginia Governor called upon the National Guard to quell the unrest.
Go in Peace
Trump later asked supporters to dial back demonstrations amid safety fears.
The Hill adds:
President Trump on Wednesday urged his supporters who laid siege to the Capitol to “go home in peace,” hours after they first forced their way into the building.
In a one-minute taped video released on social media, Trump urged his supporters to disperse. But he reiterated his false claims that his election defeat was “fraudulent,” which was the basis for the protest in the first place.
“You have to go home now. We have to have peace,” Trump said. “We have to have law and order. We have to respect our great people in law and order. We don’t want anybody hurt.”
Sadly, I can’t tell you what the right or wrong thing to do is.
As a mom, I never want to see violence. As a citizen of this great nation, I know our freedom was won with bloodshed.
Is this the war we must fight? Because it’s not just about who the president is. It’s about the fact that this government of the people, by the people, is not carried out by our hard working citizens. It’s a crooked game with crooked players and it’s time we scratch that and start again.
