Pence Tells Jesse Watters He Hasn’t Spoken to Trump Since the Summer: ‘January 6 Was Difficult’

( Former Vice President Mike Pence never really disappeared from the public eye, appearing at conservative events across the country and reportedly forming a team of staff to test the waters for a future presidential run. However, his recent interview on Jesse Watters Prime Time on Fox News indicates that he might be willing to step further into the limelight as we head towards the 2022 midterms and the Republican presidential primaries sometime after that.

On Thursday, former Vice President Pence discussed the unpopularity of Vice President Kamala Harris, rising gas prices, and what his relationship with former President Donald Trump is like.

When Watters asked Pence whether he is still in contact with the president, he told the Fox anchor that they last spoke during the summer of 2021.

“And you know I’ve said many times, it was difficult, January 6 was difficult. It was a tragic day in the life of the nation,” Pence said, indicating that the issue of the election and whether or not the vice president has the right to reject presidential electors when faced with evidence of election misconduct remains contentious.

Pence said that he knows he did his duty under the constitution of the United States, but that the president and he sat down, spoke about it, talked it through and then “parted amicably.”

It means that should former President Donald Trump formally announce a run for president in 2024, he not only won’t be running with Vice President Pence…but he could even be going head-to-head with him.

That might get…ugly.
