Americans will have “better choices” than Trump in 2024

Former Vice President Mike Pence believes Americans will have “better choices” than Donald Trump in future elections and said he is “prayingly considering” launching his own candidacy for the 2024 White House.

When asked Monday by ABC’s David Muir if 76-year-old Trump should ever be president again, the former vice president replied that he thinks “it’s up to the American people.”

“But I think we’re going to have better choices going forward,” Pence continued.

“People in this country actually get along really well once you’re out of politics. And I think they want to see their national leaders begin to reflect the same, the same compassion and the same generosity of spirit. And I think, so I think there’s going to be better decisions in the coming days.”

“And for me and my family, we’re going to think about what our roles will be in that,” he added.

The Native American native told Muir that he and his family are considering a presidential bid in 2024 and that the decision will not be influenced by Trump’s upcoming announcement in the White House of a potential presidential nomination of his own.

“We’re thinking about it in our house. Prayerful consideration,” Pence said.

The former vice president would not speculate on his chances against his former boss in the primaries.

“Well, others would have to say that,” Pence said when asked if he could beat Trump. “And it would be up to us to decide whether or not to test that.”

Karen Pence, the former vice president’s wife, added during Monday’s TV special that she and her husband expect to raise the matter with their three children over the holiday season. She said the decision will depend on whether “they feel called” or not.

When asked about Trump’s Mar-a-Lago announcement, which is scheduled for Tuesday night, Mike Pence said he expects to see it.

During the interview, the former vice president also expressed anger at Trump over the former president’s actions that led to the Jan. 6 Capitol riots.

Pence told Muir that Trump’s actions during the riots “put me and my family and everyone in the Capitol at risk.”

“The president’s words were reckless and his actions were reckless,” Pence said, bluntly calling the former president “part of the problem” on Jan. 6.

Pence said he did not speak to Trump for five days after Jan. 6 and that he did not hear from the President or the White House at all that day.

The former vice president said he and his ex-boss spoke after his presidency, but not since the summer of 2021, when Pence said Trump had returned to his pre-January days. 6 rhetoric on the 2020 election.

Pence added that prior to the Capitol riot, Trump was advised by a group of lawyers who should not have been allowed onto White House grounds, calling some of Trump’s aides “deeply bad advisers.” Americans will have “better choices” than Trump in 2024
