‘We’ll never see eye to eye on that day’: Mike Pence relives split with Donald Trump over MAGA riot

Mike Pence said on Thursday he doubted he would ever ‘see eye to eye’ with Donald Trump about the Capitol insurrection, but insisted he was proud to have served as his vice president.

MAGA rioters stormed the Capitol building on January 6 as the then-Vice President was ratifying the result of the 2020 election, with some chanting: ‘Hang Mike Pence!’ when he said he did not have the power to overturn Joe Biden’s victory.

Pence, his wife Karen and daughter Charlotte were hurried to a secure facility with seconds to spare, as protesters rampaged through the building and came within yards of breaching the Senate chamber.

But Trump and his allies have played down the seriousness of the riot, with representative Andrew Clyde saying it was like a ‘normal tourist visit.’

Speaking at a Republican fundraiser Pence said:  ‘You know, President Trump and I have spoken many times since we left office. And I don’t know if we’ll ever see eye to eye on that day.
