Vice President Mike Pence is furious with President Donald Trump over the way the president has handled his loss to President-elect Joe Biden, according to a Republican senator.
Sen. Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma had a “long conversation” with Pence on Tuesday night, a day before pro-Trump rioters broke into the Capitol in Washington, D.C. in protest of the election results. Inhofe relayed that Pence felt a sense of betrayal from the president after he attacked him over the Electoral College certification.
“I’ve known Mike Pence forever,” Inhofe said Tuesday night, according to Tulsa World. “I’ve never seen Pence as angry as he was today.”
“I had a long conversation with him,” Inhofe added. “He said, ‘After all the things I’ve done for [Trump].’”
Pence’s anger at the president is likely to not have abated on Wednesday after the president ramped up pressure on Pence calling for him to refuse to certify Biden’s election victory. Congress certified Biden’s victory early
