Pence Says He Was “Angered” by Trump’s “Reckless” Actions on January 6, 2021

HeadlineNov 15, 2022

Former Vice President Mike Pence told ABC News in an interview broadcast on Monday that Trump’s actions on January 6 “endangered” his family, as well as everyone at the Capitol that day. And Pence said he was “angered” over Trump’s tweet on January 6 that Pence “didn’t have the courage to do what should have been done.”

Mike Pence: “And I said, 'It doesn't take courage to break the law; it takes courage to uphold the law.’ I mean, the president’s words were reckless. It was clear he decided to be part of the problem.”

Pence granted ABC News the interview just as he published his new memoir, entitled “So Help Me God.” Today Donald Trump is expected to announce from his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, that he’s running for the presidency again in 2024.
