Appearing with Jake Tapper on CNN, Utah Senator Mitt Romney responded to a report claiming that President Trump had considered invoking Martial law by saying that “it’s going nowhere.”
Tapper asked Romney “This is, needless to say, quite alarming and scary to a lot of people. What will the Senate do to make sure this doesn’t happen?”
Romney responded “Well, it’s not going to happen. It’s going nowhere.”
He added “It’s really sad in a lot of respects and embarrassing because the president could, right now, be writing the last chapter of this administration with a victory lap with regards to the vaccine.”
Saturday, Trump disputed the report of “Martial Law” consideration as “Fake News” tweeting “Martial law = Fake News. Just more knowingly bad reporting!”
Martial law = Fake News. Just more knowingly bad reporting!
