Wisconsin House Speaker says within the last week Trump called to ask him to overturn 2020 election

The speaker of the Wisconsin Assembly claims that former President Donald Trump is still pressing to overturn the 2020 election results in the Badger State.

In fact, according to Wisconsin State Assembly Speaker Robin Vos (R), Trump called him as recently as “within the last week” to decertify the 2020 results in the state that he won in 2016.

WISN reporter Matt Smith questioned Vos about when he last spoke with the former president, prompting the reply, “Within the last week.”

“Within the last week?” Smith asked.

“Before or after he tweeted about you?” he added, referring to Trump’s post on Truth Social in which he called Vos out as a “long time professional RINO” after the decision by the state supreme court on drop boxes.

“Before,” Vos told WISN. “It’s very consistent. He makes his case, which I respect. He would like us to do something different in Wisconsin. I explained that it’s not allowed under the Constitution. He has a different opinion and he put the tweet out, so that’s it.”

“The court case as you read it does not go back and say what happened in 2020 was illegal,” Vos said. “It just says going forward it can’t happen.”

“How would you describe your relationship with him?” Smith asked the speaker. “Because after, he comes out and he calls you a RINO and saying you’re allowing Democrats to get away with murder.”

“Yup,” Vos responded. “I think we all know Donald Trump is Donald Trump. There’s very little that we can do to try to control or predict what he will do.”

Earlier this month, the state’s high court ruled that absentee ballot drop boxes can only be placed in election offices. Trump took to his social media platform to react:

“Looks like Speaker Robin Vos, a long time professional RINO always looking to guard his flank, will be doing nothing about the amazing Wisconsin Supreme Court decision stating loud and clear that the impossible to control Ballot “Unlock” Boxes in the State are ILLEGAL. What a waste of brilliant and courageous decision by Wisconsin’s Highest Court. The Democrats would like to sincerely thank Robin, and all of his fellow RINOs, for letting them get away with “murder.” A Rigged & Stolen Election!”

 

Vos responded by saying there was “no way” to overturn the election in that state.

“As I’ve said before, I applaud the Supreme Court’s decision on drop boxes. I agree with President Trump that it was a courageous decision,” he said in a statement to WKOW. “But, as I’ve also said, as have so many other legal scholars, there is no way to reclaim electors and overturn the election.”

He explained his future plans to the outlet.

“My plan is to focus on electing a Republican Governor so Governor Evers cannot again veto the 22 election reform bills we’ve passed,” Vos said. “The Assembly will take these bills up again first thing next legislative session.”
