Mike Pence, who served as former US President Donald Trump's Vice President, said yesterday (Saturday) in an interview with the "Fox News" network that he will not support Trump's candidacy for the US presidency in the elections this coming November. Pence's statement comes after last Tuesday, Donald Trump officially secured the 1,215 delegates required to become the Republican Party's candidate for the US presidency.

In an interview with Fox News, Pence said that "this should not surprise anyone" and noted that it was no secret that the two had had their share of "deep disagreements" not only around the controversy regarding the results of the 2020 elections. Pence did point out, however, that he was "proud to have worked under Trump during his time as president in the White House."

Trump caused a media buzz this week when he said that if elected again, the first thing he would do would be to pardon incarcerated rioters who were imprisoned for their actions during the attack on the Capitol Building on January 6, 2021. During the riots that took place in Washington, D.C. after Trump's loss to Biden, four protesters were killed and over 50 people were arrested.

In addition, CNN reported this week that advisers who worked under Trump during his time in the White House testified about the former president's controversial statements. According to the report, John Kelly, who served as chief of staff in the White House, testified to a controversial statement by Trump who allegedly said that, "Hitler did some good things, he rebuilt the economy." According to Kelly, Trump expressed appreciation for senior Nazi Party officers loyalty to their leader. In response, Kelly told him that, "You can never say good things about Hitler."
