In an interview with ABC’s David Muir, former Vice President Mike Pence was asked whether he thought that Donald Trump should become the President again. In response, Pence had said that he thought there were better options. He also added that this would be in the hands of the American people, but from his viewpoint, there were better options for the future.
Pence also told Muir that outside of politics people in America tend to get along, so they should have a national leader that inspires that “compassion and generosity of spirit.”
Trump announced another bid for the White House at his Mar-a-Lago estate on Tuesday.
Pence has previously published an op-ed by The Wall Street Journal in which he described being upset over the events that took place on Jan.6, 2021. He also recalled that his family had been there, as a mob of pro-supporters had entered the Capitol and were chanting “Hang Mike Pence”.
Pence’s op-ed is an adapted segment from his memoir, “So Help Me God.”
The House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack has also reported on how Trump and his allies attempted to pressure Pence into not certifying the 2020 election results.
When Muir asked Pence whether he would be running for President. Pence replied that it is something that he is considering with his family.
