Pence Says He May Never See Trump ‘Eye to Eye’ on Capitol Riot
Former Vice President Mike Pence’s speech illustrated the careful balance he is aiming to strike in squaring the rhetoric of the Republican Party under former President Donald J. Trump while standing by his opposition to Mr. Trump’s attempts to overturn the results of the 2020 election.
You know, we’ve all been through a lot over the past year. Global pandemic, civil unrest. A divisive election. And tragedy at our nation’s Capitol. As I said that day, Jan. 6 was a dark day in the history of the United States Capitol. But thanks to the swift action of the Capitol Police and federal law enforcement, violence was quelled. The Capitol was secured. And that same day, we reconvene the Congress and did our duty under the Constitution and the laws of the United States. You know, President Trump and I have spoken many times since we left office. And I don’t know if we’ll ever see eye to eye on that day. But I will always be proud of what we accomplished for the American people over the last four years.
