Donald Trump doesn’t have a lot of sense of friends. His two closest friends were a bodyguard who worked in his administration and Michael Cohen, a lawyer who went to jail for him.
Once the friendship is useful, Trump quickly takes the exit. And when Mike Pence decided not to help the former president overthrow the election, he was no longer as useful.
However, the former vice president does not appear to have received the memo. According to a report from CNN:
“Pence told a group of Republican lawmakers on Tuesday that in addition to remaining close friends with Trump, he also plans to create a political action organization to defend the government’s record. And North Carolina representative Jim Banks, who was part of the meeting held at Pence’s interim office, said the uprising “never surfaced.” Six weeks before a potentially fatal experience made possible by your ex-boss? It’s time to let the past be the past. “
Banks said of the two men’s relationship: “He spoke very positively about his relationship with President Trump. I feel like they talk a lot and have the same personal friendship and relationship that they have had for four years. “

Trump signaled back in January that pence had outlived its usefulness. He tweeted: “Mike Pence did not have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our country and our Constitution, and gave states the opportunity to certify a corrected set of facts, not the fraudulent or inaccurate ones they previously reported had to certify. USA demands the truth! “
