The Washington Post reports:
When former vice president Mike Pence reemerged for his first post-White House appearance at a convention center chicken dinner here Thursday night, he did not mention how then-President Donald Trump’s supporters marauded through the Capitol on Jan. 6, threatening to hang him.
Or that the president attacked him on Twitter as lacking “courage” as the Secret Service rushed him to safety that day. Or the criticism Trump has leveled toward his former No. 2 in recent weeks.
In fact, as Pence met privately with about 400 pastors in the cavernous First Baptist Church downtown and traveled across South Carolina, hobnobbing with and fundraising for Christian groups and conservative candidates, he spoke with an almost reverence about the former president.
Read the full article. Pence’s appearance in early primary state South Carolina is part of laying the groundwork for his 2024 presidential bid.
During a swing through South Carolina, the former vice president praised Trump’s record and did not address how Trump supporters attacked the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. https://t.co/wWs5Zwi5yg
