Mike Pence has claimed that Donald Trump’s attempt to overturn Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 US presidential election is “new bottom” in their troubled relationship.2016 Pence, Trump’s vice presidential nominee in 2018, made the remark in an excerpt from his memoir “So Help Me.”
The former Indiana governor continued to criticize the 45th president’s “fatal decision” to reverse advice about admitting defeat to Biden.
Instead, Pence said his former boss had put in place an unqualified team of outside lawyers to oversee the strategy.
The 63-year-old also explained how he and Trump clashed in the Oval Office because the former US president demanded evidence to back up his unsubstantiated claim that the election was stolen.
“It was a new low, even in an office accustomed to rowdy debates,” Pence argued.

But the excerpt didn’t mention Pence’s thoughts on Jan. 6, 2021, when Trump supporters stormed the Capitol.
Pence was forced to flee the Senate after a mob stormed Congress after Trump declared that “Mike Pence didn’t have the courage to do what he had to do.”
“So Help Me God” will be released on November 15th and comes as Pence continues to position himself as a potential Republican candidate for 2024.
At an event at Georgetown University last month, the former vice president appeared to hint that he might run to replace Biden.
