Trump says Pence has “very disappointed” him in not overturning the election

Former President Donald Trump stressed that when asked about the possibility of running against his former running mate in 2024, former Vice President Mike Pence “deeply disappointed” him by not reversing his 2020 election loss.

Trump continued the remarks during a phone interview Monday The John Fredricks Show. The former president was asked about a New York Times Report released hours earlier that included a quote from Pence that suggested he might try to challenge Trump in the next presidential election.

Trump did not comment directly on the possibility of opposing Pence, instead repeating his grievances about the former vice president’s refusal to overturn his January 6, 2021 defeat of President Joe Biden in Congress. Despite the lack of credible evidence, Trump has continued to falsely claim the election was “stolen.”

“I am very disappointed in Mike, as are many others,” Trump said. “He just disappointed me a lot. He had a great opportunity and all he had to do was just send it back to the legislature, let them decide… So I’m very disappointed in the stance he took.”

“We have to see what all happens,” he added. “But I only know one thing: Our country has probably never been as bad as it is now.”

Former Trump adviser Peter Navarro, who guest-starred during the show’s live taping in Georgia, told the former president the “worst thing” Pence did to him was “not put the knife in your back, it was.” to stab you in the chest”. “

In addition to speaking out against Pence, Trump urged the audience to vote for his supported GOP gubernatorial candidate in Georgia, David Perdue, who was also a guest on the show. Polls show that Perdue remains well behind Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp a day before the Republican primary.

Trump and Pence have been increasingly at odds with each other since leaving office. The feud has recently escalated because Pence has taken several symbolic moves away from Trump, including a recent decision to fight with Kemp, whom Trump has denounced as “RINO” (Republican in name only) for not recognizing his 2020 defeat in Georgia could cancel.

“Mike Pence was to lose a governor’s race in 2016 before he was caught and his political career saved,” said Trump spokesman Taylor Budowich The New York Times On Monday. “Now Pence is desperate to chase after his lost relevance, parachuting into races hoping someone will be on the lookout.”

“The reality is that President Trump is already 82-3 on his endorsements, and there’s nothing stopping him from saving America in 2022 and beyond,” Budowich added.

Trump’s claim that Pence had the power to overturn the 2020 results has been contradicted by multiple fact checks. During a Federalist Society speech in Florida in February, Pence also insisted he could not have overturned the election while targeting Trump for making what he called an “un-American” proposal.

“President Trump is wrong. I had no right to overturn the election,” Pence said during the speech. “The Presidency belongs to the American people and only to the American people. In all honesty, there is almost no idea more un-American than the idea that any person could choose America’s president.”
