There are more than a dozen senators ready to help Donald Trump in his efforts to scrap the 2020 election results. Among these are prominent GOP lawmakers like Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley.
And while it doesn't matter whether the number is 1 or 50, it doesn't change the election results. However, that doesn't mean Trump isn't mad at the Senators for not joining him in his fight.
John Cornyn, John Thune and Mitch McConnell have shown no interest in joining the challenge. On Tuesday night, Trump called all three men in an angry tweet.
"Hope the Democrats, "Trump began, and more importantly, the weak and ineffective RINO section of the Republican Party is looking at the thousands of people flocking to DC. They will not stand for a landslide election victory being stolen. @senatemajldr@ JohnCornyn@SenJohnThune ”

Of course there are problems for Trump every 3 men. After Thune announced that he would not participate in the election campaign, the President asked Governor Kristi Noem to prime him. Noem refused.
Not only is McConnell not participating in the fight, he has reportedly asked all Republican Senate officials not to participate.
Cornyn was asked if he would join the fight earlier this week. He told reporters, “As a former judge, I view this process with the same impartial, evidence-based decision-making as my work at the bank. So unless substantial new evidence is presented during the challenge of each state's ballot, I will not object to the confirmation of this stave's election results based on unproven allegations. "
