Pence Slams ‘Disgraceful’ New York Times Over ‘Fake News’ Article


Recommended Posts


Vice President Mike Pence blasted The New York Times on Sunday over an article suggesting that he is forming a shadow political campaign to run for president in 2020.

In a statement issued by the White House, Pence called the Times piece “fake news” as well as “disgraceful and offensive” and “laughable and absurd.”

“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,” Pence said.

In the Times article, headlined “Republican Shadow Campaign for 2020 Take Shape as Trump Doubts Grow,” reporters Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns assert that Pence is creating an “independent power base” in case there is an opening for president in three years.

The piece does not suggest that Pence will directly oppose President Trump in 2020. But the article notes that Trump’s political future is uncertain given the investigation being conducted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his rocky start so far.


The campaign that isn't.
