Trump and Pence had friendly telephone conversation
President Donald Trump and his vice president Mike Pence had a “good conversation” at the White House on Monday evening. It was their first meeting since Trump supporters stormed the Capitol last Wednesday. The two would have discussed their last week until the inauguration of their successors and agreed to continue their work.
Trump and Pence would also have agreed that ‘the perpetrators of violence’ at the Capitol are not representative of the almost 75 million Americans who voted in the November presidential elections at Trump.
In the last few days there has been tension between the two because Pence had not complied with Trump’s request to thwart the ratification of Joe Biden’s election victory in Congress.
Trump then posted on Twitter that Pence “did not have the courage to do what was necessary to protect the country and the Constitution”. Trump repeated his claims that there was a large-scale election fraud.
