Mike Pence responded to a question with four words that will stun Donald Trump
Mike Pence continues to tweak Donald Trump.
Pence’s every move has led to 2024 speculation.
And Mike Pence responded to a question with four words that will stun Donald Trump.
Former Vice President Mike Pence spoke at an event at the University of Virginia.
Before Pence spoke, the speech made national news, as a woke mob tried to cancel the event by claiming the former Vice President engaged in “hate speech.”
After that effort to suppress free speech on the University of Virginia campus failed, Pence delivered his talk in a direct rebuke to cancel culture.
Former Vice President Pence made news during the speech as well.
Of course, the headlines centered around Pence’s comments about a potential 2024 Presidential campaign.
“I was just wondering if you’re planning to run in 2024 for President,” a student asked the former Vice President.
“I’ll keep you posted,” Pence responded.
The fact that Pence is making tours to deliver public speeches leaves the strong impression that he is planning to run for President no matter what Donald Trump decides to do in 2024.
Donald Trump does not believe Pence will run against him.
When the Washington Post’s Josh Dawsey asked Trump whether Pence or several other Republicans would enter the race if he ran for re-election, Trump answered that he did not think those other candidates would run.
“If I ran, I can’t imagine they’d want to run. Some out of loyalty would have had a hard time running. I think that most of those people, and almost every name you mentioned, is there because of me. In some cases, because I backed them and endorsed them,” Trump stated.
But what is clear is that if Pence wants to be on the ticket in 2024, it will not be as Donald Trump’s running mate.
Trump told the Washington Examiner that his base would not accept Pence as his Vice Presidential nominee.
“I don’t think the people would accept it,” Trump stated.
Trump said he worked well with Pence up until the moment on January 6, where he did not reject certified Electoral College results that the former President claimed were the result of voter 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 stated. “I haven’t spoken to him in a long time.”
For his part, Pence dropped hints that he intends to challenge Trump by echoing corporate-controlled media and Democrat Party talking points that Trump was a Vladimir Putin stooge.
“There is no room in this Party for apologists for Putin,” Pence declared at a Republican National Committee donor retreat.
