On Tuesday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “Cavuto: Coast to Coast,” Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) stated that people “just gotta get over” President-Elect Donald Trump’s election in response to efforts to deny Trump a victory.
Manchin reacted to efforts to deny Trump an electoral victory by saying, “people just gotta get over it and go on. I mean, let’s get on with governing this country, making us the world leader, and keeping — maintaining that superpower status. And that means we’ve all got to get behind our president, whether you voted for him or not, and work with him, and try to make him successful, and be respectful if we disagree and find a different path forward. But I’m just — I mean, this is taking too much time and energy. There’s too much — too many other things to be concerned about. And I think we have the greatest system of democracy in the world. It’s not perfect. They’re going to make some mistakes, but it’s one we can trust. Now, I trust it, and I feel very comfortable with it.”
