Pence Tells Trump and GOP Imitators to “Go Back to Truth Social”

Sep 6, 2023 | True Patriot News Daily

In a speech at the Young America's Foundation's National Conservative Student Conference in Washington, D.C., Pence said that the Republican Party is at a crossroads and that it must choose between “conservatism” and “Trumpism.”

“Some people may choose to follow the siren song of unprincipled populism,” Pence said. “But I'm here to tell you, conservatism is the only way to win.”

Pence's speech was a clear rebuke of Trump and his continued influence over the Republican Party. Trump has repeatedly attacked Pence since the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol, when Pence refused to go along with Trump's demands to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

In his speech, Pence also criticized some of Trump's policies, such as his trade war with China and his tariffs on goods imported from other countries. Pence said that these policies have hurt American businesses and consumers.

Pence's speech is likely to further divide the Republican Party. Some Republicans have remained loyal to Trump, while others have become increasingly critical of him. It remains to be seen which faction of the party will prevail in the 2024 presidential election.

In addition to his criticism of Trump, Pence also used his speech to lay out his own vision for the future of the Republican Party. He called for a return to traditional conservative values, such as limited government, free markets, and a strong national defense.

 Former Vice President Mike Pence argues that former President Donald Trump “and some of his imitators in the Republican primary” are walking away from core conservative values.

It's a charge the former vice president made in an interview with Fox News Digital on the eve of a highly-billed speech Pence will deliver on Wednesday titled “Populism vs. Conservatism: Republicans' Time for Choosing.”

Pence will give his address at Saint Anselm College's New Hampshire Institute of Politics, a must-stop for White House hopefuls in the state that holds the first primary and second overall contest in the GOP presidential nominating calendar.

“I think we have a very clear choice that’s emerging, not just between candidates but between a philosophy of governance, and Republicans are facing a Republican time for choosing,” Pence emphasized during his Fox News interview at a campaign stop in New Hampshire.
