2020 ELECTION/GOP/MIKE PENCE: “Trump, speaking at a Republican National Committee gathering at his Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Fla., excoriated a number of Republicans even as he publicly called for party unity…

Trump said the crowd at his rally preceding the Capitol attack was so large — falsely claiming that ‘some people say it was over a million people’ — because supporters were upset about fraud and said he was ‘disappointed’ in former vice president Mike Pence for certifying the [2020] election later that day. He expressed no regret about his actions on Jan. 6, nor about those of the Capitol rioters.

‘I wish that Mike Pence had the courage to send it back to the legislatures. . . . I like him so much. I was so disappointed,’ Trump said.”
