(DailyVantage.com) – Former Vice President Mike Pence warned in an interview that current US President Joe Biden was indirectly empowering “evil” in the world with his “message of weakness.”
Pence claimed in an interview with Breitbart News on April 19 that world peace could only be achieved only through “strength” and through the United States protecting its “interests” across the globe. The former vice president went on argue that “weakness arouses evil” and that Biden’s administration had sent the world a message that the US was weak after it pulled out of Afghanistan and attempted to return to the Iran nuclear deal.
During the interview, Pence suggested that the US could look strong again by continuing to fund Ukraine’s conflict with Russia. Pence claimed the conflict was of vital importance to the US — despite describing it as “not our war” — because China was monitoring America’s response to the Russian invasion in preparation for its own alleged future invasion of Taiwan.
Pence suggested that if Beijing could detect weakness in the United States’ response to the Russia-Ukraine conflict, then it would feel more empowered to take over Taiwan despite American threats and warnings.
Pence’s stance on the conflict is in complete opposition to former US President Donald Trump’s own position. Trump has repeatedly stated that Ukraine is not of vital strategic importance to the US and has criticized the amount of money that the US government has spent on the conflict — arguing that just a fraction of the money could have been used to solve the American homeless veteran crisis.
Despite running together in 2016 and 2020, Trump and Pence are both running for president in 2024 separately after a rift developed between the two towards the end of the Trump-Pence administration in 2020.
All major polls currently show Trump as the clear frontrunner in the 2024 Republican primary, followed by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. Most polls place Pence third in the race and with significantly less support than both Trump and DeSantis.
