Donald Trump issued a statement praising former Vice President Mike Pence for his comments claiming that media coverage of the Capitol Rising of Jan.
In an interview with Fox News personality Sean Hannity earlier this week, Pence, who was the target of some hideous threats from a handful of riot protesters, made some surprising comments.
He condemned the media focus of the so-called “uprising” as obsessed with “a day in January”.
“I know the media is trying to divert attention from the failed agenda of the Biden administration by focusing on one day in January,” said Pence.
“They want to use that one day to try to humiliate the character and intentions of 74 million Americans who believed we could be strong and wealthy again and support our government in 2016 and 2020,” continued Trump’s former right-wing Hand away.

“The disastrous withdrawal of the Biden government from Afghanistan was the biggest foreign policy debacle since the hostage-taking in Iran,” he said. “And it never had to happen.”
President Biden’s refusal to take the advice of his own military leader resulted in a suicide bombing that killed 13 soldiers, a retaliatory drone attack by the United States that killed 10 civilians – including a development worker and 7 children – and left countless Americans behind the Taliban-controlled country.

“Vice President Mike PenceTestimony during his interview with the great Sean Hannity severely destroys and discredits the Unselect Committee’s witch hunt over the events of January 6, “he said.

Pence also revealed that he and former President Trump split just days after the Capitol uprising, but on good terms.
“I can tell you we broke up amicably at the end of our term, and we’ve talked several times since we left,” Pence said, claiming their strong relationship carried her through the turmoil.
“You can’t spend nearly five years in a political foxhole with someone without building a strong relationship,” he added, suggesting that the future should be where everyone is worried now.

Democrats and the media would prefer the American people to focus on the Capitol insurrection, knowing full well that this is the only thing that will pull independent voters off the ballot in the upcoming election.
The Democrats face the possibility of a bloodbath in the 2022 midterm elections, with polls already leaning towards Republicans, an unpopular Democratic President and a White House, making matters worse every day.
