The United States President, Donald Trump met with his Vice, Mike Pence for the first time on Monday, after the Capitol riot last week.
According to reports, President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence had a “good conversation” at the White House on Monday evening, a senior administration official said.
The conversation was their first since the Republican president lambasted Pence on Wednesday for not seeking to block the certification in Congress of Democratic President-elect Joe Biden’s Electoral College win.
A source familiar with the situation told Reuters that Trump had not reached out to Vice, Pence to check on his safety on Wednesday when he was evacuated after a mob of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol in the middle of the certification process.
The official said Trump and Pence discussed the Capitol riot in their Oval Office meeting on Monday.
“They reiterated that those who broke the law and stormed the Capitol last week do not represent the America first movement backed by 75 million Americans, and pledged to continue the work on behalf of the country for the remainder of their term,” the official said in a statement.
“The two had a good conversation, discussing the week ahead and reflecting on the last four years of the administration’s work and accomplishments,” the official added.
