Donald Trump and Mike Pence formed a productive and successful partnership over the last four years.
But now President Trump could move on.
And Donald Trump is facing this major decision about Mike Pence’s future.
On January 6 Vice President Mike Pence will perform his constitutional duty as President of the Senate and preside over a joint session of Congress to certify the results of the Electoral College.
If no Senator objects or one does and the objections fail, then Vice President Pence will officially close the book on Donald Trump’s Presidency by making the controversial results of the 2020 election official.
Axios reports this duty finds him crosswise with President Trump.
“Pence’s role on Jan. 6 has begun to loom large in Trump’s mind, according to people who’ve discussed the matter with him,” Axios reports.
Axios also reports that “Trump would view Pence performing his constitutional duty — and validating the election result — as the ultimate betrayal.”
Vice President Pence knew this was coming and scheduled a departure on a foreign trip within hours of the joint session concluding.
Pence hopes out of sight equals being out of mind.
But Pence could dodge their ire by leaving Washington immediately for the Middle East and Europe. According to three U.S. officials familiar with the planning, the vice president is eyeing a foreign trip that would take him overseas for nearly a week, starting on Jan. 6.
Though Pence aides declined to confirm details of the trip, which remains tentative, a U.S. government document seen by POLITICO shows the vice president is due to travel to Bahrain, Israel and Poland, with the possibility of more stops being added. A pre-advance team of Pence aides and other U.S. officials left earlier this week to visit the planned stops in preparation for the multicountry tour, which would be Pence’s first trip abroad since last January, when he traveled to Rome and Jerusalem on a whirlwind two-day sojourn.
Vice President Pence is strongly looking at a run for President in 2024 if Donald Trump does not run.
When Joe Biden ran for President this past year, Donald Trump mocked him for not immediately securing the endorsement of his former boss Barack Obama.
If Vice President Pence’s final act in office is certifying Joe Biden’s fraudulent election win then Donald Trump will not only refuse to endorse Pence if Trump does not run in 2024, but he will also actively seek to defeat him.
And that would be the end of Pence’s presidential aspirations.
