The liberal media had spent much of the day sowing the seeds of disparity within the White House.
It was their hope to give the impression that all was not well between President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, perhaps in an attempt to further wound the Commander in Chief as their vague “impeachment inquiry” rolls on. For many, the literal distance between Trump and Pence was seen as some sort of discouraging sign, while others decried what they saw as the President throwing his number two man under the bus in comments just days ago.
Today, Mike Pence laid all of this to rest.
Vice President Mike Pence is defending President Donald Trump’s call that foreign governments investigate one of Trump’s leading Democratic rivals.
And Pence is echoing Trump’s private and public urging of Ukraine’s president to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and Biden’s family. Earlier Thursday, Trump said China should investigate Biden. There’s been no evidence of wrongdoing by either Biden.
Pence tells reporters at an event in Arizona that he thinks “the American people have a right to know if the vice president of the United States or his family profited from his position as vice president during the last administration.”
Pence reiterated that the President motives were pure in his hopes to root out corruption and “drain the swamp”, even mentioning that creed itself.
The Democrats will now look to regroup after so thoroughly misreading the Vice President’s actions over the course of the last few days.
