( – On Sunday, former Vice President Mike Pence (R) claimed he would not be endorsing former president Donald Trump not so much because of the actions he had taken on the day of the Capitol attack but rather because his policies did not align with conservative principles. 

During an interview on CBS News’s “Face the Nation” with Margaret Brennan, Pence argued that there was an issue regarding Constitutional fealty and that this was not a small matter. However, as he argued his decision was not just influenced by that. 

He continued by stating that he could not in “good conscience” give the former president his endorsement in 2024 when he was walking away from conservative values and principles. He added that this did not just relate to his stance regarding the Constitution but also was focused on his commitment to fiscal responsibility, America’s position as a world leader, and the sanctity of life. He then noted that Trump was even walking back on previous statements he had made regarding a possible TikTok ban. 

Pence noted that Trump’s administration had been instrumental in altering how the country viewed China and that he was now reversing his stance regarding TikTok. Pence argued that this was not something he could support which is why he was opting to not endorse the former President in the upcoming general election. 

Trump is currently the 2024 presumptive Republican presidential nominee. In 2020 after losing the presidential election Trump had taken a number of actions to try and reverse the election results.
