Former Vice President Mike Pence said in a speech to Republicans in Manchester, NH. that the GOP must fight President Joe Biden’s $2.3 trillion spending plan, calling it “a thinly disguised climate change bill.”
Pence, who claims to have spoken with former President Donald Trump on several occasions, told reporters that he and the ex-President have a disagreement on the happenings at The Capitol Building on Jan. 6th, but also said he did not want to give Democrats any fodder to use the event to detract from the administration’s achievements over the prior four years.
“I will not allow Democrats or their allies in the media to use one tragic day to discredit the aspirations of millions of Americans — or allow Democrats and their allies in the media to distract our attention from a new administration intent on dividing our country to advance their radical agenda,” Pence told NH GOP supporters on Thursday.
Pence was in the Senate chambers on Jan. 6th presiding over certifying the Electoral College results of the 2020 election.
The former Veep also refuted Biden’s call of law enforcement’s inherit systemic racism stating, “Black lives are not endangered by police, black lives are saved by police every day.”
