In his latest interview with CNN, former Vice President Mike Pence shied away from sharing if he will support Trump if he wins the 2024 GOP presidential primary.
CNN host Dana Bash’s asked Pence if he would support Trump if he won the GOP primary to which Pence responded “Dana, I tell you, I don’t think we’ll have to make that decision.”
Pence continued “I’m confident I’ll be able to support the Republican nominee, especially if it’s me.”

Check out what The Washington Examiner reported:
Former Vice President Mike Pence wouldn’t say he would support former President Donald Trump, his onetime boss, if Trump eventually became the GOP’s presidential nominee next year during an interview on CNN’s State of the Union.Advertisement
When host Dana Bash questioned if Pence would rule out voting for Trump, Pence replied, “Dana, I tell you, I don’t think we’ll have to make that decision.”
“I’m confident I’ll be able to support the Republican nominee, especially if it’s me,” Pence continued during his interview with Bash. “I will tell you, I’m confident as they’ve done so many times before. Republican primary voters are going to choose new leadership for a new time in the life of our nation. We simply have got to move our country forward.”
The two running mates, now turned 2024 rivals, have ratcheted up their attacks against one another after a special counsel unveiled a third indictment against Trump over his alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential results and the subsequent Jan. 6 Capitol riot. Pence, in particular, has stressed on the campaign trail that he put his duty to the Constitution over Trump’s efforts to pressure him not to certify the 2020 results. He again reiterated those comments on Sunday.
“President Trump was wrong then, and he’s wrong now. I had no right to overturn the election,” Pence told Bash. “I truly do believe that we kept our oath to the Constitution that day. But the American people deserve to know that President Trump asked me to put him over my oath to the Constitution, but I kept my oath, and I always will.”
Besides making headlines for taking shots at Trump, pence recently made headlines again after making major blunder in his latest campaign add.

Former Vice President Mike Pence is being mercilessly mocked on social media over a new campaign ad that appears to show him pretending to pump gas.
Pence, who continues to struggle in the polls while challenging former President Donald Trump and other Republicans for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination, on Tuesday shared a short video of himself presenting the “Pence Plan” for energy while “pumping gas” into a red pickup truck on X, formerly Twitter.
The video shows the former vice president exiting the truck while inviting his viewers to “remember $2 a gallon gas.” Pence then picks up a gas pump and goes through the motions of fueling the truck while denouncing President Joe Biden’s “war on energy.”
