(TheIndependentStar.com) – The alleged tensions between former Vice President Mike Pence and former President Donald Trump near the end of their term were often a talking point in the media. Many focused on the events of January 6 as giving rise to some type of clash between the two, but remarks from the former vice president show that may not have been the case.
October 4, on Fox’s Hannity program, former Vice President Pence told host Sean Hannity he felt the tragedy of January 6 has become a weapon with which to put down supporters of the Trump administration. He said it is a ploy to distract from the failings of the current administration and is nothing more than a way to demean the 74 million people who voted to keep him and the former president in office.

Prior to these comments, Hannity had asked Pence about his ongoing relationship with the 45th president. Pence said they remain in contact, and had great conversations following the vote to certify the election in favor of Joe Biden. Despite immediate backlash from the former president, Pence said they are on amicable terms now.
The former vice president said Republicans should not be looking back at those times. Instead, he suggests maintaining a focus on the future and the 2022 midterms.
