Former Vice President Mike Pence reportedly spoke highly of former President Donald Trump during a meeting with Republican lawmakers on Tuesday.
"He spoke very favorably about his relationship with President Trump," said Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN). "I got the sense they speak often and maintain the same personal friendship and relationship now that they have for four years."
The group met with Pence to discuss the future of the Republican Party and about Pence becoming more visible to the public after declining an invitation to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
"He'll be launching an organization defending the successful Trump-Pence record of the last four years," said Banks about Pence. "He talked about how in 2009, the new Democrat President, Democrat House, Democrat Senate — how similar that moment was to this moment. A massive spending deal Democrats pushed in 2009 that overreached, every single [House] Republican voted against in 2009. That sure looks like the $1.9 trillion bill that's on the floor this week."
Pence had split from Trump on the certification of Biden's Electoral College victory.
