Mike Pence refused to say one thing under pressure
Vice President Mike Pence has loyally served Donald Trump during his time in office.
That was just put to the test.
And Mike Pence just refused to say one thing under pressure.
Even weak-kneed RINOs like Mitt Romney are caving to Black Lives Matter and its radical political agenda.
Romney marched with the group and even blurted out the catch phrase “black lives matter.”
During an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Vice President Mike Pence refused to give in to pressure and utter “black lives matter” because the Vice President said the group’s far-left political agenda made him uncomfortable.
“And as a pro-life American, I also believe that all life matters, born and unborn,” Pence told CBS interviewer John Dickerson. “But what I see in the leaders of the black lives matter movement is a political agenda of the radical left that would defund the police . . .”
Dickerson interjected and tried to get Pence to say “black lives matter.”
But Pence stated you could not separate the phrase from the ideology that underpinned the group.
“That would tear down monuments, that would press a radical left agenda and support calls for the kind of violence that has beset the very communities that they say that they’re advocating for,” Pence added.
Pence rejected the idea that you had to say certain catch phrases to show support for the black community.
Instead, the Vice President pointed out that the Trump administration demonstrated that black lives mattered by enacting policies that promoted sage neighborhoods and prevented lawlessness.
“I’ve literally met with African American leaders around this country, and in the national capital area, who made it clear to us they want law and order, they want peace in our streets,” Pence said.
