Vice President Mike Pence

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Vice President Mike Pence released a statement in response to a New York Times story that says Pence might be preparing to run for President in 2020.

In the statement, Pence called the story posted in Sunday’s New York Times “disgraceful and offensive” and made use of the hot catch-phrase of the day, “fake news”.

Here is Pence’s statement:

Today’s article in the New York Times is disgraceful and offensive to me, my family, and our entire team. The allegations in this article are categorically false and represent just the latest attempt by the media to divide this Administration.

Thanks to the President’s leadership, we are rebuilding the military, ISIS is on the run, and we’ve seen more than 1 million jobs created while the stock market hits all-time highs.

The American people know that I could not be more honored to be working side by side with a president who is making America great again.

Whatever fake news may come our way, my entire team will continue to focus all our efforts to advance the President’s agenda and see him re-elected in 2020. Any suggestion otherwise is both laughable and absurd.

    I see there are those hanging on to their hate and not accepting Trumps election. The witch hunt won’t work. Should the Republicrats try and hurt Trump, the people will vote him right back in. Watch 2020 and get ready to get you feelings hurt again.

    Why you liberals don’t want America to be great is just plain backward. Trump is already put America on track to success and greatness again. We all see the positive results of his agenda.

    Yes, I totally support President Trump’s efforts Making America Great Again!

    You liberals should too.

      To you and other wingers, making America great means eliminating all others except white, anglo saxon Protestants. They are the chosen ones. And to your kind, the founder of Christianity was a white guy who just happened to be born in Bethlehem.

    I didn’t report or delete anything. I don’t care what the gang of five has to say about me or my posts. I let their post speak for them. It’s a free country. Besides, NIT likes the bickering back and forth.

    Trump will not only run in 2020 he will WIN!

    This country finally has a President that stands for America and the party of hate is trying everything they can think of to bring down President Trump. I am putting my money on the American People. When the 2018 midterm elections are over you are going to see more Republicans elected and some Republican’s replaced with conservative Republicans.

    America is on the road to become GREAT AGAIN. Even though we are seeing a lot of road blocks by Republicans too, the American People see what’s going on and will make the necessary changes at the ballot box.

      You are delusional.
      Trump won’t even make it 4 years, maybe not even two years.
      He is a disaster for this country and will either resign in disgrace or be impeached by his own Republicans.
      You just keep on drinking that Kool-aid watchdog, like the good little Trump lemming that you are.
      Trump is a dangerous fool and you are just a fool.

      If what you say is true, that Republicans will win more and more seats in 2018, then our country is doomed. If one party has that much control, our forefathers fought the Revolutionary War for nothing. They wanted this country to be based on compromise not authoritarian rule. They left England because they had no say in the government. They came here to create a nation that tolerated differences and, when differences arose, some sort of compromise be created. They divided the government into 3 branches so that no single branch could overrule the other. The branches were to check the others and mediate when a branch stepped over the bounds of decency and law. You, and others like you, want it your way and would be perfectly content to watch the other side be massacred or imprisoned. If the right is able to pull off what you seem to believe will happen, then there will be a faction that will advocate for the elimination of progressives. They are there now and their numbers are growing daily. Will the right check this faction? No, because it would decrease their power. We will end up no better than Russia, Syria or any other country that has dictatorial rule. God help us.

        And if you want examples of what the country would look like when the libs are back in power take a gander at Illinois and California. And also consider what happened to the national debt under 8 years of Obama. Yep, that’s what the country needs alright. Crat control again.

          If you want an example of what this country will look like with all Republicans in office, take a gander at Kansas. Look what a liberal governor has done for Minnesota.

          Illinois and California each have state economies which are larger than most country’s. Either state has boatloads of high paying jobs. Any discussion of debt is really worthless if you don’t consider the debtors ability to repay the debt. It’s akin to saying Bill Gates is in dire straits because he has a $10,000 credit card bill. Sure a $10,000 credit card bill is big problem for a typical NIT reader, but to Bill Gates, it’s paid off with just a few hours at the office.

            Wait a minute here, you can’t compare Bill Gates to a government. Bill Gates has the money and California and Illinois do NOT. They only have the ability to TAX the crap out of the citizens living in each of those states. You leverage property and savings not people?

            I know you want to but the po’folks out here will rebel against that notion.

            That is what Fascist/Socialist/Progressive/Liberal/Democrats do to free people. In fact that’s what they have been doing to all Americans all along, and if haven’t noticed, people are pissed off about it.

            Eventually you end up with rebellion and chaos. Every country that has did the whole Socialist thing, taxing and spreading the wealth ends in war against their own government. Pretty close to 100 million people have died breaking free of Taxing People out of their hard earned money.

            You have completely missed the point. I know they don’t tell you this on conservative talk radio, but a discussion of debt is totally incomplete without considering the debtors ability to repay a debt. Illinois and California have state economies which dwarf states like Iowa or Minnesota. Consequently, those states can service very large debts.

    No BS to it. Liberal haters are now using my handle to post just to stir the pot. I am thinking Matt may have to register handles and we have to sign in to use them.

    Progressive/liberals/socialist/Democrats can’t win the debate so now they are impersonating others to spread fake news! This tactic won’t work either!!

    Because the snowflake Trump supporters don’t like it when someone suggests that Trump, Trump’s Family, Pence, and several members of Trump’s cabinet won’t be around to run in 2020. This would be of course because of their treasonous collusion with Russia. So rather than listen to that viewpoint they cry to the “Publisher” (LOL) and have him remove the comments so their sensitive natures and get back to the echo chamber that is NIT. PS Trump is going to have the grandest grand jury!

      You’re absolutely right he’s lying. Pence will go down with Trump. He knows too much about covering up their treasonous Russian collusion. He will be indicted right along with the rest of the family.

          The Russian Collusion lie was the worst of all lies. After months of investigations there is zero proof of collusion. Hilary on the other hand should be in jail.

        It’s slowly dawning on Republicans that Trump just might be the worst president ever.

        All is not well in Republicanville.
        No matter how slavish the Fox News segments become, it ain’t working; it is slowly dawning on Republicans that the president they are so dutifully protecting and sucking up to may, in fact, be an idiot.

        The only people still supporting Trump are dumbasses.
