Donald Trump and Mike Pence forged a successful partnership during their time in office.
But all is finished.
That became clear when Donald Trump hit Mike Pence with some bad news about 2024.
Donald Trump continues to strongly hint that he will run for president again in 2024.
That led to the obvious question of if Trump would keep Mike Pence as his running mate.
Trump repeatedly alluded to the fact that Pence would not be on the ticket in 2024 if Trump won the GOP nomination.
But in an interview with the Washington Examiner, Trump confirmed that Pence would not be Trump’s selection as vice presidential nominee.
“I don’t think the people would accept it,” Trump told the Examiner’s David Drucker.
Trump explained that he and Pence worked well together, but Trump stated that the breaking point in their relationship came when on January 6 Pence did not reject Electoral College results Trump claimed were arrived at by fraud.
“Mike and I had a great relationship except for the very important factor that took place at the end. We had a very good relationship,” Trump told the Examiner. “I haven’t spoken to him in a long time.”
Pence recently spoke out against Trump’s claims about January 6 stating Trump was wrong about January 6 and that the vice president could not single-handedly overturn the election results.
The former vice president told a crowd at a Federalist Society event:
There are those in our party who believe that as the presiding officer over the joint session of Congress, that I possess unilateral authority to reject Electoral College votes. And I heard this week that President Trump said I had the right to overturn the election.
But President Trump is wrong. I had no right to overturn the election. The presidency belongs the American people, and the American people alone. And frankly, there’s no idea more un-American than the notion that any one person could choose the American president.
Trump responded to these comments claiming Pence did not want to act on January 6.
“Mike thought he was going to be a human conveyor belt, that no matter how fraudulent the votes, you have to send them up to the Old Crow,” Trump said in the interview.
Pence pointed to the Constitution saying the vice president had no power on January 6 except for a ceremonial role in merely counting the votes.
Trump argued that Congress looking to reform the Electoral Count Act to clarify that the vice president cannot reject Electoral College results meant Pence could have acted.
“But that turned out to be wrong. Because now, as you know, they are feverishly working to try and get it so that the vice president cannot do what Mike said he couldn’t do,” Trump added.
“I was disappointed in Mike,” Trump concluded.
