POLITICS. Pence assured that he has maintained communication with Trump / EFE
This Thursday on the conservative podcast “Ruthless”, former Vice President Mike Pence assured that he has spoken “a dozen times” since last January with former President Donald Trump, despite criticism by the former president against the official for not blocking the certification of the results of the Electoral College on January 6.
The context: On that date, Trump, who led a protest over the results of the November 2020 presidential elections, asked Pence to stop the act that would take place hours later on Capitol Hill. The former vice president refused and, despite the pause due to the irruption of a mob at the headquarters of Congress, he commanded the appointment that gave Biden the victory.
- Videos showed that part of the group that participated in the assault on the Capitol chanted “Hang Mike Pence.”
- The Republican has repeated on numerous occasions that he does not regret having acted as he did on January 6.
What do they say?: “Obviously, it was a difficult day. It was a dark day in our Capitol building. We have overcome it. We finished the job, and I can honestly tell you that my focus is completely on the future, and I think the future is bright, “said former Vice President Pence.
- In a June interview with Fox News, Trump said about Pence that they had a good relationship even though he “disappointed me,” referring to January 6.
- Although he has been silent on the issue, Pence could appear in the Republican Party’s race for the 2024 presidential election.
