Former Vice President Mike Pence said he is confident Donald Trump would not be the Republican nominee.
During an appearance on CBS’s “Face The Nation” on Sunday, Pence said, “I remain confident, more confident after Wednesday night that the Republican nominee will not be the former President Trump.”
Last month, Tucker Carlson effectively ended Mike Pence’s career over his indifference to domestic problems and his support of Ukraine.
When Pence responded to Tucker, saying he believed the U.S. should continue sending more money to Ukraine, the audience booed.
Here is what Tucker said:
“You’re running for President. Are you distressed that Ukrainians don’t have enough American tanks?! EVERY city in the U.S. has become much worse over the past three years…and it’s VISIBLE. Our economy has degraded…suicide rate has jumped…crime has exponentially increased, and yet your concern is that the Ukrainians – country that most people can’t find on a map who’ve received tens of billions of U.S. tax dollars don’t have enough tanks!” Tucker said.
Tucker continued, “I think it’s a fair question to ask, where’s the concern for the United States?”
“That’s not my concern,” Pence said. “Tucker, I’ve heard that routine from you before, but that’s not my concern!”
Last month, Carlson has described Pence as “creepy” and “sinister” in an upcoming biography.
The Dossier, a Substack page run by independent journalist Jordan Schachtel, obtained a copy of Chadwick Moore’s “Tucker,” where the former Fox News host recalled his dealings with Pence.
“I’ve been around him a lot and always felt that he was a totally sinister figure, craven and dishonest,” he said.
“Everything about Pence is false.”
Despite Pence’s claims that Trump won’t be the nominee, Trump’s poll numbers continue to rise.
Following last week’s debate, a new poll shows Trump crushing Florida Ron DeSantis 61-9 and topping Joe Biden 44-41 in a general election.
