The former vice president tells Republicans not to let Democrats and the news media divide them over the U.S. Capitol attack.
MANCHESTER, N.H. ― Former Vice President Mike Pence acknowledged Thursday for the first time his break from his ex-boss over the Jan. 6 insurrection, but he still did not blame Donald Trump for inciting the violent attack that nearly got him killed.
“As I said that day, Jan. 6 was a dark day in the history of the United States Capitol,” Pence told about 360 Republicans gathered for the Hillsborough County Lincoln-Reagan Dinner. “You know, 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 about that day. But I will always be proud of what we accomplished for the American people over the last four years.”
