Mike Pence Sparks Doubt With His Story About an Exchange With Putin


Former Vice President Mike Pence made a claim about an exchange he allegedly had with Russian President Vladimir Putin, but Twitter users are not buying it.

During an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, Pence explained, “I’ve stood closer than I am to you and looked Vladimir Putin right in the eye and told him things he didn’t wanna hear.”

Pence added, “If you think he’s going to stop, if he captures Ukraine, in re-establishing the old Soviet sphere, you’ve got another thing coming.”

When asked if he believes Putin would go to Poland, Pence did not appear sure.

However, he suggested other countries would be at risk.

During a speech at the Heritage Foundation in October, Pence warned conservatives against expressing their support for Putin.

“As Russia continues its unconscionable war of aggression to Ukraine, I believe that conservatives must make it clear that Putin must stop and Putin will pay,” he said.

Pence added, “There can be no room in the conservative movement for apologists to Putin. There is only room in this movement for champions of freedom.”
