Conservative group Defending Democracy Together (DDT) launched a website advocating the removal of President Donald Trump from office and allowing Vice President Mike Pence to take his place, saying that “while Pence isn’t the president of anyone’s dreams, he isn’t Donald Trump either. So there’s that.”
Pence served six terms as a Congressman for Indiana before becoming the state’s governor in 2013. He became vice president after Donald Trump won the election in 2016.
“President Trump’s defenders have endlessly repeated the preposterous claim that impeaching and removing a president undoes an election, as if that weird inauguration and the midterm elections where Republicans got throttled never happened,” said DDT spokesperson Tim Miller in a Thursday press release.
“Removing the president doesn’t overturn the election,” Miller continued. “It won’t put Hillary Clinton or Nancy Pelosi in the White House. Instead it will give us President Mike Pence. And while Pence isn’t the president of anyone’s dreams, he isn’t Donald Trump either. So there’s that.”
