Donald Trump praised former Vice President Mike Pence for his remarks, claiming that media coverage of the January 6th Capitol riots “insulted” Trump supporters and distracted them from the failure of the Biden administration.
In an interview with Fox News personality Shawn Hannity earlier this week, Pence, who was the target of some vicious threats by a handful of riot protesters, made some surprising remarks.
He called the media focus of the so-called ‘rebellion’ obsessed with “one day in January”.
“I know the media wants to be distracted from the Biden administration’s failed agenda by focusing on one day in January,” Pence said.
Trump’s former right-hand man continued, “They want to try to discredit the character and intentions of the 74 million Americans who believed we could be strong and prosperous again and supported our administration in 2016 and 2020.”

“The catastrophic withdrawal of the Biden administration from Afghanistan was the biggest loss of foreign policy since the Iranian hostage crisis,” he said. “And it never happened.”
President Biden’s reluctance to listen to his own military leader’s advice has killed one service member in a suicide bombing, a retaliatory drone strike in the United States has killed 10 civilians – including aid workers and children – and scores of Americans have fled the Taliban-controlled country.

Pence further revealed that former President Trump and he parted ways shortly after the Capitol riots, but did so on good terms.
“I can tell you that at the end of the administration we were friendlyly separated, and we’ve both talked several times since leaving office,” Pence said, adding that their strong relationship has taken them through their instability.
“You can’t spend nearly five years in a political foxhole with anyone without building a strong relationship,” he said.

Democrats and the media will rather focus the American people on the Capital Riot, knowing full well that this is the only thing that will move independent voters away from the ballot box in the upcoming election.
Democrats are facing the possibility of a bloody by-election in mid-2022, with votes already leaning towards Republicans, an unpopular Democrat president and a White House that is making matters worse on a daily basis.
