Former Vice President Mike Pence spoke at a Republican dinner in New Hampshire this week and addressed his current relationship with former President Donald Trump.

For whatever reason, Pence felt the need to bring up the unrest on January 6th, noting that he’s talked to Trump several times since then but that they will never “see eye to eye” on the matter.

Pence on Jan. 6: “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…” pic.twitter.com/AibOUha531

Pence would go on to thank the Capitol Police for their “swift” action, noting that the Congress reconvened and certified the election some hours later. Pence also suggested that he’s not going to let what happened on January 6th overshadow the aspirations of “millions of Americans,” noting that we have a new administration that is further dividing the nation and pushing a far-left agenda. The former VP did not elaborate further on exactly what he and Trump don’t see eye to eye on, though, it likely involves Pence’s presiding over the certification of Biden’s election and not necessarily the violence that occurred.

From these comments, I think we can ascertain a few things. For starters, the Pence-Trump relationship appears to be over. If Trump does run again in 2024, something very much up in the air, you can probably safely place your bet on Pence not being a part of that ticket. Honestly, I don’t get the feeling Pence would even accept any future invitation from Trump. I think the bond between the two has been firmly broken over the last several months.

Whether Pence himself will try to run for president if Trump chooses to play kingmaker is another question. I think he has his eye on that judging by his recent appearances, but I also think he will end up getting creamed by Ron DeSantis if it comes down to that.
