“Former President Donald Trump fired back at former Vice President Mike Pence on Monday, saying the failure to proceed to debate on the 2020 Electoral College vote was the true cause of the Jan. 6 unrest at the Capitol.
“Had he sent the votes back to the legislatures, they wouldn’t have had a problem with Jan. 6, so in many ways you can blame him for Jan. 6,” Trump told reporters on Trump Force One, en route to his Monday night speech in Davenport, Iowa, The Washington Post reported.
“Had he sent them back to Pennsylvania, Georgia, Arizona, the states, I believe, number one, you have had a different outcome,” Trump continued. “But I also believe you wouldn’t have had ‘Jan. 6,’ as we call it.”
Trump was responding to Pence’s most critical remarks yet of his former boss.
“President Trump was wrong,” Pence told a Saturday Gridiron Dinner. “I had no right to overturn the election. And his reckless words endangered my family and everyone at the Capitol that day, and I know history will hold Donald Trump accountable.
“Make no mistake about it, what happened that day was a disgrace — and it mocks decency to portray it any other way,” added Pence.
Trump characterized the amped-up rhetoric from his former VP as being a politically opportunistic attack, amid Pence’s own presidential aspirations.
“I guess he figured that being nice is not working,” Trump told reporters on the plane, according to the Post. “But, you know, he’s out there campaigning. And he’s trying very hard. And he’s a nice man, I’ve known him, I had a very good relationship until the end.”
Trump repeated his position that Pence had authority — as evidenced by the Democrat-led Congress’ immediate effort to change the laws.
“He had the right to send them back. Otherwise, they wouldn’t have changed the Voting Act,” Trump concluded on the plan.” (Courtesy Newsmax.com)
Former President Donald J Trump is being more nice about the words spoken by the turncoat professional politician than I would have.
I was truly shocked when Mike Pence first turned on President Donald J. Trump.
Perhaps, I shouldn’t have been.
The things which drew a lot of average Americans to literally fall in love with Candidate and then President Donald J. Trump was the fact that he was “one of us”.
He was not a professional politicians.
He knew how to laugh and he spoke to us, whether in one of his live appearances or on television, as if we were close friends who had known each other all of our lives.
He was authentic.
Unfortunately, with the future of our Constitutional Republic hanging in the balance, average Americans found out that his Vice-President, Mike Pence, was not.
Former Vice-President Mike Pence proved himself to be just another plain vanilla professional politician, more than willing to trade his spine for political expediency.
And, boys and girls, as we all know, actions have consequences.
Failure to act does, too.
In Pence’s case, his failure to act started our Sovereign Nation on a downward spiral, at home and abroad.
At that time, Pence’s actions really disillusioned me.
You see, Pence proclaims himself to be a Christian.
Well, that’s not for me to judge.
However, he turned his back on a man whom Dr. James Dobson described after sitting down with him before the 2016 Presidential Election as “a new Christian”…to side with individuals who want to legalize full-term abortions and who believe in 36 genders.
One of the “Fruits (or Gifts) of the Holy Spirit” described in the Bible is that of “discernment”.
I think that Brother Pence needs to exchange his “gift of discernment” for one that actually works.
What he did on that fateful day has proven to be a disastrous decision.
His decision to run for President will turn out to be one, as well.
