This morning Palmer Report pointed out that Mike Pence is now acting as the de facto President of the United States, and that’s not really okay, because Donald Trump still holds the actual title. Pence is needlessly putting the nation at risk because he lacks the guts to invoke the 25th Amendment.
In another sign that Mike Pence is now the de facto President, he called incoming Vice President Kamala Harris today and offered to work with her going forward. That’s a good thing. It’s a lot better than if Pence weren’t cooperating with the Biden administration. But it’s still not okay that Pence is allowing Trump to remain in power until inauguration day.
