Pence glosses over Trump's VP snub during first speech since leaving office and slams Biden's 'radical' first 100 days
MIKE Pence has glossed over Donald Trump’s Vice President snub during his first speech since leaving office and slammed Joe Biden’s “radical” first 100 days.
The former Vice President, 61, failed to address the apparent snub paid by Donald Trump after he named Ron DeSantis as a possible vice president in the 2024 race.
Trump suggested that he would run alongside the Florida Governor in a third run during an interview with Fox Business on Thursday.
He was then asked if he would considering running alongside DeSantis, who Trump has always had a good relationship with.
"Certainly," he confirmed. "Ron would be considered. He's a great guy."
Pence, who recently underwent surgery to install a pacemaker, though chose to ignore Trump’s comments during a speech to an evangelical audience at the annual gala of the conservative non-profit, Palmetto Family Council, in South Carolina, on Thursday.
He did though set out a right-wing, Republican set of policies that he claimed would “win back America,” potentially positioning himself as a presidential candidate for 2024.
Pence said: “Our agenda is clear. It’s the agenda implemented in the four years of the Trump-Pence administration, built on a strong national defense, secure borders, free-market economics, America first trade deals, Conservative judges and it’s a movement built upholding all of the God-given liberties enshrined in the Constitution.”
He also took aim at what he called the “far-left agenda of the Biden-Harris administration” during the first 100 days of being in office.
He said: said: “After 100 days of open borders, runaway spending, plans for higher taxes, a bigger welfare state, more government, defunding the police, abandoning the right to life, cancelling our most cherished liberties, I’ve had enough.”
He added: “After 100 days, I think the time has come for Americans devoted to faith and family and freedom and limited government to stand up and to unite behind a positive agenda and win back America, and it starts right here and right now in South Carolina.”
“The time has come for freedom-loving Americans to stand up to the far left agenda of the Biden-Harris, administration and say enough is enough,” he said.
“It’s time to unite behind a positive agenda built upon our highest ideals and win back America. And we have the winning agenda, men and women, I have no doubt about it, built on American values and on our confidence in the American people.”
It’s expected Pence will hit the campaign trail ahead of mid-term elections in 2022.
