Donald Trump: I’d be president right now if it weren’t for Mike Pence

Speaking on the pro-Trump network Newsmax this Monday, former President Donald Trump threw some shade at his former Vice President, Mike Pence, suggesting that if he didn’t certify the 2020 election results on Jan. 6, he still might be president.

“What’s your take on Mike Pence and what’s the relationship like?” Real America’s Voice host David Brody asked Trump.

“Well, I’ve always liked Mike and I’m very disappointed that he didn’t send it back to the legislatures when you have more votes than you have voters in some cases, and when you have the kind of things that were known then,” Trump said.

“I was disappointed that he didn’t send it back,” Trump continued. “I felt that he had the right to send it back. He should have sent it back. That’s my opinion.”

“I think you may have found that you would have had a different president right now had he sent them back,” he added.

In the run-up to Jan. 6, then-president Trump tried to force Pence to overturn Joe Biden’s victory, falsely claiming that Pence had the power to throw out electoral votes when Congress met to certify the 2020 election’s results. To this day, Pence is seen as a “traitor” by some of Trump’s most loyal followers.
