Pence: ‘Trump Asked Me To Choose Him Or The Constitution – I Chose The Constitution’

  • Mike Pence directly addressed the rivalry between him and Donald Trump, saying on January 6, his then-boss asked him to “choose between him and the constitution.”
  • “January 6 was a tragic day in the life of our nation,” Pence began. “As I’ve said many times, on that fateful day, President Trump’s words were reckless, and endangered my family and everyone at the Capitol. But the American people deserve to know that on that day, President Trump also demanded that I choose between him and the constitution. Now, voters will be faced with the same choice: I chose the constitution and I always will.”
