Pence Uses Announcement To Swipe At Trump & Prepare For 2024

Well, it appears that the 2024 GOP primary has already started even though nobody has announced they are running.

Former Vice President Mike Pence recently announced his new policy platform and took a jab at former President Trump in the process.

The move appears selfish, we haven’t even gotten through the 2022 midterms yet and Pence is swiping at Trump.

“Elections are about the future, and frankly the opposition would love nothing more for conservatives to talk about the past or to talk of the mess they’ve made of the president,” Pence said to numerous news outlets during a conference call.

“And I think by relentlessly focusing on the future we can stop the radical left, we can turn this country around, we can win the Congress and statehouses back in 2022, and we can win back America in 2024 and beyond,” he added.

Pence’s platform does mention election reform but never mentions the 2020 presidential election. The former Vice President’s policy requires mandatory voter identification and would require that mail-in voting be used in “rare” circumstances.

Then Pence took a swipe at Trump by taking his words out of context.

From Politico:

His platform also takes a stand against Russian President Vladimir Putin, who Trump recently described as a “genius.” It says that “Russia harms American interests by threatening American allies,” and that “Putin undermines freedom and democracy at home and abroad.”
