Mike Pence slams Biden’s handling of the economy and avoids criticizing Trump

Mike Pence criticized Joe Biden’s stewardship of the economy, but avoided any criticism of Donald Trump, who had called him a “human conveyor belt” for failing to reject what he believes were fraudulent votes in the 2020 election.

“Tough economic times are coming,” Pence said Monday during a speech to the University Club of Chicago, which he used as an indictment of Biden’s presidency.

“The economic woes that we are now dealing with have been almost single-handedly caused by one person,” he said.

And, he warned, Americans “know more economic pain to come.”

Pence, who is examining a presidential bid for 2024, called for a “change of direction.”

“The truth is that a majority of Americans know that President Biden’s economic policies have failed utterly and completely and that it is time to change course for America,” he said.

Pence, in a speech that could be seen as a campaign platform, criticized Biden for the high gas prices the country faces, inflation and the shortage of baby food.

“The Biden administration has squandered American wealth faster than any other administration in our country’s history,” he said.

‘Inflation is rampant. Gas and food prices are rising. Real wages are falling. And the stock market plummets. Grocery stores are empty from time to time, and the confidence and pride that have been synonymous with the American people in recent years has been replaced by fear and national unrest,” Pence said.

But he also remarkably failed to criticize Trump, who continued to criticize him for failing to reverse the results of the 2020 presidential election when Pence oversaw electoral college certification — a ceremonial role.

Pence indirectly referred to January 6, but did not refer to what he was going through that day — the MAGA crowd shouted to hang him — nor did he mention Trump’s role in the uprising.

“You know we’ve all been through a lot in recent years – a global pandemic, social unrest, divisive elections, a tragic day in our nation’s capital and this government that seemingly every day is driving our economy into the abyss of socialist prosperity. state,” said Pence.

But he went no further than that and returned to criticizing Biden.

The special committee investigating Jan. 6 focused during Thursday’s hearing on Pence and the pressure Trump and his allies are putting on him to reject Biden’s election victory.

Testimonials showed that Trump disapproved of his then vice president as a ‘sul’.

And, after the hearing, in his address to religious conservatives at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s “Road to the Majority” meeting, Trump again denounced his vice president.

“Mike was afraid of whatever he was afraid of,” Trump said.

“But as you heard a year and a half ago, Mike Pence had absolutely no choice but to be a human assembly line… even if the voices were fraudulent.

“They said he had to send the votes… couldn’t do anything.”

Trump will soon be Illinois too. He’s going there this weekend — ahead of the state primaries — to hold a rally in support of freshman Rep. Mary Miller, whom he supported in a one-on-one Republican matchup with five-year Rep. Rodney Davis.

The only mention of Trump that Pence made on Monday was bragging about the country’s economic record under the Trump presidency.

President Biden inherited the most prosperous economy in the history of the world. Before the pandemic hit under the Trump pence administration, Americans had gained more than 7 million new jobs,” Pence said.

Pence focused many of his comments on the economic hardship many Americans are feeling. Voters give Biden low marks on his way of handling the economy. And Democrats fear they could lose control of Congress in the upcoming midterm elections because of voters’ financial misfortune.

“I am confident that unless this administration changes course and their allies in Congress change course drastically, the American people will change leadership, and very quickly,” he said.

Pence said that under his and Trump’s tenure, “America became the world’s largest producer of oil and natural gas.”

And he lashed out at Biden for blaming Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine for high gas prices across the country.

President Biden has given Vladimir Putin the unscrupulous invasion of Ukraine for our current energy crisis. The truth is that gasoline prices are skyrocketing, not because of the war in Ukraine. Gas prices are rising because of Joe Biden’s war on energy and it has to stop and stop today,” he said.

Meanwhile, members of the committee investigating the uprising said they could subpoena Pence.

“We’re not taking anything off the table in terms of witnesses who haven’t yet testified,” said Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, who described a subpoena from Pence as “definitely a possibility.”
