Since Pence failed to stop the certification of the 2020 election Republican voter support for him has tanked. His relationship with Trump has also soured.
45th President Donald Trump was finally asked if Pence would be his running mate – he all but shut the door on it saying “I don’t think people would accept it.”
Former President Donald Trump is effectively ruling out tapping former Vice President Mike Pence as his running mate should he mount a third White House bid in 2024 and win the Republican nomination.
â€œI donâ€™t think the people would accept it,â€ Trump told the Washington Examiner Tuesday evening during a wide-ranging telephone interview from Mar-a-Lago, his private social club and political headquarters in Palm Beach, Florida.
Trump continues to insist otherwise. He pointed to bipartisan talks on Capitol Hill to reform the Electoral Count Act, the law governing the congressional certification of Electoral College results, as proof his vice president could have thrown out electoral votes from various states and facilitated a second term for the Trump-Pence ticket. The former president called Pence a â€œreally fine personâ€ but signaled their relationship might be irrevocably broken.
â€œMike and I had a great relationship except for the very important factor that took place at the end. We had a very good relationship,â€ Trump said. â€œI havenâ€™t spoken to him in a long time.â€
