VideoFormer United States Vice President Mike Pence has reiterated his support for former President Donald Trump in what appeared to be the first election speech in the 2024 presidential election. Trump stormed the Capitol, also targeting Pence.
Pence gave the speech to a conservative Christian audience in South Carolina on Thursday. There, he praised what he saw as the achievements of the Trump administration. Pence is seen as a contender for the Republican nomination in the upcoming presidential election. In addition to Pence, former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are said to have presidential ambitions.
However, the realization of these ambitions is still being complicated by former President Trump, who is playing with the idea of running again. On Thursday, Trump said “100 percent” that he would definitely consider a new campaign.
Relations between Trump and Pence reached a nadir after the Capitol storm on January 6. This arose out of Trump’s unproven claims that he lost the November 2020 election due to electoral fraud. Pence refused to acknowledge this and refused to cooperate in an attempt to sabotage parliament’s approval of the election results. When crowds of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol for this purpose, the then vice president’s security guards narrowly managed to transport him and his family to safety.
However, on Thursday, it seemed as though nothing at all had happened between Pence and Trump. In his speech, Pence attacked President Joe Biden, who said he poured “a torrent of left-wing politics” in the United States in his first 100 days in the White House.
Despite Pence’s loyalty, Trump told Fox News on Thursday that if he gets the Republican nomination, he will consider electing Ron DeSantis, the governor of Florida, as vice president. This seems to preclude Trump from campaigning with Pence again.
