With there seemingly being a move away from Trump in the Republican Party, everyone is opening up a bit more on their feelings about Trump.
Now, we already knew there was no love lost between Trump and Pence.
Pence, however, just kicked open the door, threw in a grenade, and slammed that door shut for good.
Pence has chosen his words about Trump very carefully until now.
He has never really poked the bear, but it seems like he saw an opening after the election, so he wants to blow Trump right out of the water.
On his problems with Trump, Pence stated, “The president’s words that day at the rally endangered me and my family and everyone at the Capitol building.
“The president’s words were reckless, and his actions were reckless.
“It was clear he decided to be part of the problem.”
Trump had stated that Pence lacked the courage to refuse to certify the election.
In reality, Pence did not have that authority as the role of the VP in the certification process.
There is a significant misunderstanding of his role as per the Constitution.
Pence said he turned to his daughter, who was present at the time, and stated, “I turned to my daughter, who was standing nearby, and I said, ‘It doesn’t take courage to break the law. It takes courage to uphold the law.'”
Pence has a new memoir about to come out, “So Help Me God,” and I would imagine it will shed considerable light on how the relationship faltered toward the end of Trump’s presidency.
