Pence: I May Never See Eye-To-Eye With Trump On Riot

NBC News reports:

Former Vice President Mike Pence delivered his strongest comments yet about the Jan. 6 pro-Trump riot attack on the U.S. Capitol on Thursday, saying he and former President Donald Trump may never see “eye to eye” on the event.

“January 6 was a dark day in the history of the United States Capitol,” Pence said at the Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, Republican Committee’s Lincoln-Reagan Dinner.

He added: “You know, President Trump and I have spoken many times since we left office. And I don’t know if we’ll ever see eye to eye on that day.” Pence still praised the accomplishments of the Trump administration.

CNN reports:

The two men did not speak for several days after the attack and have since gone their separate ways — including on Inauguration Day for President Joe Biden, when Pence remained in Washington to attend Biden’s swearing-in ceremony and Trump left for Florida before it began.

Despite their occasional phone conversations, Trump has continued to criticize Pence and then-Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in his post-presidential statements for allowing Congress to certify the 2020 election outcome.

As recently as May 15, Trump accused Pence in a statement circulated by his Save America PAC of lacking the “courage” to help overturn the election results.
