Speaking to Vanity Fair, a friend of Mike Pence says the former vice president is still upset over the fact that Donald Trump put him and his family in danger on Jan. 6.
Pence is reportedly "still angry that Trump placed his and his family members' lives in jeopardy," Vanity Fair reports, citing Pence's friend. Trump and Pence "still trade phone calls sporadically," according to their advisers.
During the Capitol riot, Trump supporters were caught on video chanting "Hang Mike Pence!"
"I heard at least 3 different rioters at the Capitol say that they hoped to find Vice President Mike Pence and execute him by hanging him from a Capitol Hill tree as a traitor," reported Reuters photographer Jim Bourg. "It was a common line being repeated. Many more were just talking about how the VP should be executed."
Trump and Pence have avoided being seen together in public. Pence is reportedly seeking a 2024 presidential bid.
"He's making real money for the first time in his life," said one longtime friend. "Running for president is also a great way of making six-figure speeches."
