CIVIL UNREST/MIKE PENCE: “Former Vice President Pence on Thursday [June 3, 2021] called Jan. 6 a ‘dark day’ in U.S. history, his strongest statement yet on the Capitol insurrection.

What he’s saying: ‘…President Trump and I have spoken many times since we left office,’ the former VP said in a public address in Hillsborough County, New Hampshire. ‘And I don’t know if we’ll ever see eye to eye on that day. But I will always be proud of what we accomplished for the American people over the last four years.

And I will not allow Democrats or their allies in the media to use one tragic day to discredit the aspirations of millions of Americans, or allow Democrats or their allies in the media to distract our attention from a new administration intent on dividing our country to advance their radical agenda.’”
