“It’s absurd. Really what you’ve got here is speculation, conjecture, half-truth masquerading as news on the front page of the never-Trump New York Times.”
Vice President Mike Pence’s press secretary said Monday that President Trump and his second-in-command are not divided over the 2020 election and are focused together on the administration’s agenda.
According to a Washington Examiner report:
“We obviously never talk about the private discussions between the president and the vice president, but the one thing I can tell you is that the president and vice president are on the same page. They speak constantly, regularly, multiple times a day. There’s no confusion here,” Marc Lotter said on Fox News.
Pence called the report “disgraceful” and an “attempt by the media to divide this administration,” according to a statement issued Sunday.
Lotter reiterated Pence’s disgust with the report Monday.
“It’s absurd. Really what you’ve got here is speculation, conjecture, half-truth masquerading as news on the front page of the never-Trump New York Times,” said Lotter. “The vice president has been nothing but supportive, is supportive of the president, and his singular focus is making sure the president’s agenda is enacted and that the president is re-elected in 2020.”
Lotter also pointed to a July fundraiser in D.C. where Ivanka Trump introduced Pence at a leadership PAC event, after the Times reported that Pence’s fundraising committee has raised more in disclosed donations than the president’s.
“There is absolutely no separation in this administration between the president’s team, the vice president’s team,” added Lotter.”
Do you agree that the NY times report was “half-truth masquerading as news on the front page” to divide Donald Trump and Mike Pence?
