Former president Donald Trump on Saturday said it is “too soon to tell” if he would invite former vice president Mike Pence to be his running mate if he launches a 2024 presidential campaign. 

“Well I don’t know, it’s really too soon to tell. But certainly we had a very good relationship I was disappointed with Mike on one thing as he understands and some other people understand, but overall, I had a very good relationship with Mike and he’s a very fine person and a fine man,” Trump said In an interview with Fox News after delivering a speech at the North Carolina GOP state convention, 

Trump was likely referring to his disappointment with the former vice president’s unwillingness to reject the Electoral College vote on January 6.

Trump’s supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol as Congress met to certify President Biden’s win. Rioters were recorded chanting “Hang Mike Pence” while running through the Capitol.

During the riots, Trump reportedly did not reach out to Pence, who was sheltering in a secure location in the Capitol building.
