Former Vice President and RINO Mike Pence is making the rounds disparaging the determined support President Donald J. Trump has been receiving for a possible 2024 presidential bid.
“Pence hints he would NOT support Trump in 2024 if he runs for president: Says ‘there might be somebody else I’d prefer more’ when pressed by students,” the Daily Mail said, prompting to speculation about other potential candidates.
At a recent speaking event in Georgetown, Pence was bluntly asked if he would support Trump in 2024 and received cheers when he responded negatively.
Trump and Pence have both shown interest in running for president in 2024, which may put the two running mates against one other.
‘What I can tell you is, I have every confidence that the Republican Party is going to sort out leadership,’ Pence stated. ‘All my focus has been on the midterm elections, and it’ll stay that way for the next 20 days.’
‘But after that, we’ll be thinking about the future, ours and the nation’s,’ Pence continued. ‘I’ll keep you posted.’
Trump continued to hint at a 2024 run last week.
Politico claimed that during a fundraiser at his Mar-a-Lago club, he promised participants he would disclose his political future “‘very soon” and that people would be “very happy.”
The most unequivocal declaration to date was made during the summer when he told New York Magazine, ‘In my own mind, I’ve already made that decision.’
This weekend, the former president will hold a major political event in the red state of Texas, despite the region not facing competitive 2022 elections.
Pence has been simultaneously conducting donor retreats and constructing a political apparatus that he may utilize to launch his own 2024 campaign.
Trump and Pence fell out after four years of co-governance after Pence declined to reverse the 2020 election when he presided over the joint session of Congress on January 6 to declare President Joe Biden’s victory.
Trump has subsequently stated that he would select a different running partner if he ran again.
Other Republicans are likewise laying the basis for presidential campaigns.
Politico reported on the efforts of Senators Tom Cotton and Tim Scott earlier this month.
