Former President Trump slammed his former running mate on Saturday for going “to the Dark Side” as former Vice President Mike Pence has continued to stand by his decision to certify the 2020 election in the wake of Trump’s most recent indictment.

“WOW, it’s finally happened! Liddle’ Mike Pence, a man who was about to be ousted as Governor Indiana until I came along and made him V.P., has gone to the Dark Side,” Trump wrote in a post on Truth Social.

“I never told a newly emboldened (not based on his 2% poll numbers!) Pence to put me above the Constitution, or that Mike was ‘too honest,’” the former president added. “He’s delusional, and now he wants to show he’s a tough guy.”


Trump was indicted on four counts on Tuesday over his efforts to cling to power after the 2020 election. The indictment detailed the former president’s repeated attempts to convince Pence to send back or reject electoral votes during Congress’ certification of the election on Jan. 6, 2021.

During a call on Jan. 1, 2021, Pence reportedly told Trump that he did not believe there was a “constitutional basis” for him to reject the results of the election and that it was “improper,” to which the former president allegedly said that Pence was “too honest,” according to the indictment.
