Mike Pence made one admission about the 2020 election that will make Trump’s blood boil

Mike Pence and Donald Trump are in open warfare.

The tension goes back to the 2020 election.

And now Mike Pence made one admission about the 2020 election that will make Trump’s blood boil.

Mike Pence is planning to run for President in 2024 whether Donald Trump enters the race or not.

That means Republican Primary voters face a situation where the last GOP President squared off with his Vice President for the Party’s Presidential nomination.

Polls show Pence lost significant support among Trump’s base following the events of January 6.

To that end, Pence is trying to refashion himself as the candidate of the GOP establishment.

That’s why Pence released a 28-page American Freedom Agenda document outlining the policy platform he intends to base his Presidential campaign on.

Pence knows he needs to create distance between himself and Trump.

And Pence chose election integrity to break with Trump.

In the Freedom Agenda, Pence implicitly attacks Donald Trump for continuing to claim voter fraud in the last election as a losing proposition.

“Elections are about the future, and frankly the opposition would love nothing more for conservatives to talk about the past or to talk of the mess they’ve made of the President,” Pence said on a conference call with reporters promoting the agenda.

Pence argued the path forward for the Republican Party was to focus on the future.

“And I think by relentlessly focusing on the future we can stop the radical Left, we can turn this country around, we can win the Congress and State Houses back in 2022, and we can win back America in 2024 and beyond,” Pence added.

Donald Trump makes the exact opposite argument.

Trump proposes that unless the Republican Party focuses on election integrity, the base will not turn out in subsequent elections.

If Pence and Trump ran against each other in the 2024 Republican Presidential Primary, the polls show Trump would enter the race as the overwhelming favorite.

Pence finds himself a candidate with no real political base.

Never-Trumpers despise Pence because no matter what he did on January 6 or how he tries to distance himself from Trump, the Trump-haters still regard him as a Trump stooge.

And the Trump base rejected Pence as a serious heir to the Trump movement after he dismissed the former President’s plea to reject the certified Electoral College results on January 6.
