TRUMP: ‘Too Soon to Tell’ if Pence Will Be Running Mate in Potential 2024 Run

'It's too early to be discussing running mates certainly...'

Former president Donald Trump said this weekend that it’s “too soon to tell” if he would choose former vice president Mike Pence as his running mate again if he chooses to run for the White House in 2024.

After speaking at the North Carolina GOP state convention, Trump told Fox News that while he and Pence still had a “very good relationship,” he was “disappointed” that Pence refused to help him contest the results of the 2020 presidential election when Congress met to certify the Electoral College’s votes on Jan. 6.

When asked if, given the events of Jan. 6, he would still work with Pence on a future campaign, Trump said: “Well, I don’t know. It’s really too soon to tell.”

“But certainly we had a very good relationship,” Trump continued. “I was disappointed with Mike on one thing, as he understands and some other people understand, but, overall, I had a very good relationship with Mike, and he’s a very fine person and a fine man.”

Trump added that he believes their relationship is still a good one.

“I was disappointed on one account, but that was a choice that Mike made, and I want people to make their own decisions, and he did,” Trump said.

“And, you know, Mike and I have a good relationship. We continue to have a good — but it’s too early to be discussing running mates certainly,” he added.

Trump’s remarks came after Pence said last week that when it comes to the events of Jan. 6, he and Trump might never “see eye to eye on that day.”

“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. But I will always be proud of what we accomplished for the American people over the last four years,” Pence said.
