Romney blasts ‘undemocratic’ Trump for pressuring Republicans to overturn election results

By Timothy Bella November 20, 2020 (WashingtonPost.com)

Republican Sen. Mitt Romney (Utah) late on Thursday denounced President Trump’s attempt to pressure Republican officials to reverse the results of the election, describing it as among the most “undemocratic” actions ever taken by a sitting president.

“Having failed to make even a plausible case of widespread fraud or conspiracy before any court of law, the President has now resorted to overt pressure on state and local officials to subvert the will of the people and overturn the election,” the senator from Utah and frequent Trump critic said in a statement posted to Twitter. “It is difficult to imagine a worse, more undemocratic action by a sitting American President.”Updated November 19, 2020
