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.
