Vice President Mike Pence Declares on Fox News: ‘I Won’t Support Donald Trump’

Former Vice President Mike Pence has publicly stated that he will not endorse Donald Trump for president.

During an appearance on Friday’s episode of “The Story,” former Vice President Mike Pence was asked by Martha MacCallum if he intends to vote for the man he served under for four years. Instead of dodging the question, as he had done in the past, Pence, who ran against Trump for the nomination, provided a clear and definitive response.

Martha MacCallum mentioned that she had not communicated with the former President Trump since he secured the nomination earlier this week. She highlighted that Trump has gained endorsements from some of his previous contenders. However, MacCallum expressed curiosity about whether she would endorse the former president or not.

Pence gave a response:

Well, Martha, I appreciate the question. And it should come as no surprise that I will not be endorsing Donald Trump this year. Look, I’m incredibly proud of the record of our administration. It was a conservative record that made America more prosperous, more secure and saw conservatives appointed to our courts in a more peaceful world. But that being said, during my presidential campaign, I made it clear there were profound differences between me and President Trump on a range of issues. And not just our difference on my constitutional duties that I exercised on January 6th. I mean, as I have watched his candidacy unfold, I’ve seen him walking away from our commitment to confronting the national debt. I’ve seen him starting to shy away from a commitment to the sanctity of human life. And this last week his reversal on getting tough on China and supporting our administration’s effort to force a sale of ByteDance, TikTok–

During the interview, MacCallum interjected to inquire about Pence’s thoughts on Trump’s change of stance regarding TikTok. Specifically, she questioned why Trump now opposes the legislation passed by the House, which mandates a Chinese company to divest its ownership in the platform.

During the interview, MacCallum posed a question to Pence, asking him if he plans to vote for President Joe Biden.

“I would never cast my vote for Joe Biden,” asserted Pence, emphasizing his decision not to disclose his favored candidate.

After losing the 2020 election, Trump encouraged Pence, who was presiding over the certification of the election in Congress, to refuse to certify it. Trump’s lawyers argued that Pence had the power to send the election to Republican legislatures in states where Trump had lost, and those legislatures could then vote to recognize slates of Trump electors as the legitimate ones.
