He continued, "But I turned to my daughter, who was standing nearby, and I said: "It doesn't take courage to break the law. It takes courage to uphold the law. I mean, the president's words were reckless. It was clear he decided to be part of the problem," reported Daily Mail.

During the capitol riots, Trump tweeted against Pence, claiming, "Mike Pence didn't have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our Country and our Constitution, giving States a chance to certify a corrected set of facts, not the fraudulent or inaccurate ones which they were asked to previously certify. USA demands the truth!."

Pence is all set to release his memoir, 'So Help Me God' on Tuesday, November 15, reported Daily Mail. He had previously interacted with The Wall Street Journal and answered regarding how he stepped out of the Capitol with the help of the secret emergency service.

He said, "We walked out into the hall slowly. All around us was a blur of motion and chaos: security and police officers directing people to safety, staffers shouting and running for shelter. I heard footsteps and angry chanting. Making our way to the basement of the Capitol took a few extra minutes because I insisted that we walk, not run. The Secret Service team grudgingly accommodated me.'

'22 months to finally grow a spine'

The Internet quickly reacted to Pence's statement. A user said, "Pence should go away. He's not relevant." Another claimed, "22 months to finally grow a spine." "This man sat there everyday and said nothing. He’s a coward. Bye Felicia," said a user. A tweet read, "So courageous to speak out now that Ultra MAGA is over." A tweet read, "He should have said all of this ALL of 2021 and 2022!!! He's knows the country has turned the page of tfg and NOW he wants to get back into politics. Too little, too late!!!"

Meanwhile, a user added, "In order to sell a book." "He wasn't part of the problem, he WAS the problem," stated a user. Another explained, "Of course. But saying it NOW because everyone has abandoned an already sunken ship doesn’t alter his complicity in the previous administration’s actions. Pence is trash." "Trump's words were "if you're going to go, go peacefully & patriotically" This is well documented, along with the FBI ruling that President Trump didn't incite violence. @Mike_Pence and @NBCNews are embarrassing themselves," added another.
