Mike Pence attacked Trump in this wild turn of events

Former Vice President Pence has a lot of work to do if he wants to repair his relationship with Trump. But his recent actions have put a fork in that chance.

Because Mike Pence attacked Trump in this wild turn of events.

Pence is currently in an uphill battle to win the Republican nomination for President.

At the top of the polls is former President Donald Trump.

So in an effort to gain more support from conservatives, Pence decided to launch an attack on his former running mate as well as fellow Republican candidates, in an interview with Fox News Digital.

“I think we have a very clear choice that’s emerging, not just between candidates but between a philosophy of governance, and Republicans are facing a Republican time for choosing,” the former Vice President said.

“I really do believe that we’re in the midst of a healthy debate in the Republican Party today – whether or not we’re going to continue to hue towards that time-honored conservative agenda of a strong national defense, American leadership in the world, limited government, fiscal responsibility, traditional values, and the right to life, or whether we’re going to follow the siren song of populism away from many of those same timeless conservative principles.”

Mike Pence understands that he must go on the offense if he’s to get out of the single digits in the polls.

And to do that, he’s going to continue to call out Trump and candidates like him for going against the values of conservatism.

According to Pence, “When Donald Trump ran in 2016, he ran on a promise that we would govern as conservatives. And we did. For four years we rebuilt our military, we cut taxes, we rolled back regulations, unleashed American energy, and appointed conservatives to our courts at every level.”

“But now, the former president and some of his imitators in the Republican primary make no such promise.”

One of the candidates Mike Pence believes is an “imitator,” is Vivek Ramaswamy, who hasn’t been shy in defending Trump.

It will be interesting to see if Pence’s attempts to call for true conservatism to come back to the Republican Party will work or not.

But his aides believe it’s a solid strategy.

“Mike is trying to take a stand to remind our party of the value of conservatism,” Pence’s aide said.

Donald Trump, however, will likely shoot down the attacks from Mike Pence, considering he is the one who has transformed the party into what it is today.

Despite that, Pence will continue to push conservative values.

“I believe that the majority of Republican primary voters, I believe the majority of Americans, know that the commitment to a strong national defense, American leadership, fiscal responsibility, and traditional values is an American agenda that will make our country more prosperous and more secure and more free.”

Pence better hope this plan of his works. If not, he will have to climb a bigger hill than before if he’s to be the Republican nominee.
