Trump’s Threats from January 6: “Forgiveness is Not Optional,” said Pence
Former Vice President Mike Pence has stated that he has forgiven former President Donald Trump for his actions during the violence that occurred in the Capitol. He made this statement while referencing his Christian faith.
Pence made the remark during an appearance on CNN’s Jake Tapper’s town hall to promote his new book. This appearance comes as talk swirls over whether or not he will challenge his former running mate in the Republican presidential primary. Pence was joined by Jake Tapper for the event.
On CNN, Pence acknowledged that he may in fact enter the race, and he linked his forgiveness for Trump to his own desire for a future political environment with more civility and respect, a yearning that Pence has discussed at length in recent interviews. Pence also tied his forgiveness for Trump to his own desire for a future political environment with more diversity.
“The tweets and phrases that the President used earlier in the day were irresponsible. They put my family and everyone else at the Capitol in peril, and I was furious about it,” Pence said to Tapper during the town hall meeting.
As I wrote in my book “So Help Me God” that was just released today, I’m incredibly proud of the record of the Trump-Pence Administration.

Pence said, “But you know, my Christian religion encourages me to be fast to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry.” “But you know, I am quick to listen to you.” And according to the teachings of the Christian religion, the act of forgiving others is obligatory. When we say “forgive those who trespass against us” as part of “The Lord’s Prayer,” we mean it literally.
Pence continued by describing the conversations he had with Trump after the attack on the Capitol, claiming that the previous president had made “the proper words for the country.”
On CNN, Vice President Mike Pence stated, “I’m as human as the next guy, and I still pray for the president, and I pray for the grace to forgive him and all those responsible for that horrible day.” “I’m as human as the next guy,” Pence continued.

Pence continued by saying, “But I honestly do believe that we live in a time when the citizens of the United States ought to be searching our hearts and having more grace toward one another.” “And it seems like our country is more divided now than it has ever been, even broadcast networks seem to be perceived to be divided along partisan lines, which is why I’m grateful for the opportunity to be on CNN today,” she said. “And it seems like our country is more divided now than it has ever been.”
Pence’s participation on the network comes only one day after President Trump made his formal announcement that he will run for president again in 2024. The January 6 panel responds to Pence’s additional interview questions.

Pence stated once again at the town hall that he believes there will be “better choices” than Trump in the Republican primary, and he responded to questions about whether or not he plans to run for president by adding, “I’ll keep you posted.”
He lauded the achievements of the Trump administration while expressing regret over the way in which it came to an end with the bloodshed on January 6. Pence told Tapper, “In the end, our administration did not finish well.” “In the end, our administration did not end well.”
