Mike Pence will not endorse former President Trump in the upcoming presidential elections


Former Vice President Mike Pence will not support former President Trump in the upcoming presidential elections.

Mike Pence, who served as Vice President to Donald Trump for four years, said yesterday that he will not endorse his former boss before the American presidential elections in November.

Pence, who ended his presidential campaign for 2024 amid unpromising poll numbers, told Fox News, "It's not surprising that I won't endorse Donald Trump this year."

Trump won enough delegates this week to, mathematically speaking, secure the Republican Party's nomination and is set to run for president again, facing Democratic President Joe Biden on November fifth.

On that day, Pence, as Vice President, assumed the honorary role of the President of the U.S. Senate and was responsible for certifying Biden's win in the 2020 election over Trump.

He refused Trump's instructions to postpone or suspend the certification of the election results, a move that angered Trump and led to him rebuking Pence, while some rioters chanted "hang Mike Pence," according to Reuters.

Pence worked faithfully with Trump but publicly distanced himself from the former Republican president due to his role in the riots that erupted on January sixth, 2021, at the U.S. Capitol Building, carried out by Trump supporters.

During his presidential campaign, Pence said his life was endangered that day and urged Republican voters in the primaries not to choose Trump as their White House nominee this year.

Pence ended his attempt to secure the Republican Party's nomination in October.
