Former President Donald Trump, who has continued to openly and brazenly lie about the events of January 6, the day a mob of his supporters stormed the United States Capitol in a bid to overturn the 2020 election results, praised his former Vice President, Mike Pence after Pence appeared on Fox News and accused the media of focusing on “one day in January.”
Former Vice President Mike Pence criticized President Joe Biden’s sweeping Covid-19 vaccination requirements. Pence lent himself to hyperbole, saying the announcement was “unlike anything I have ever heard from an American president.”

Donald Trump doesn’t have much use for friends. His two closest friends were a bodyguard who worked in his administration and Michael Cohen, a lawyer who went to jail for him.
