Mike Pence Takes Veiled Swipe at Trump: ‘No Room’ for Putin ‘Apologists’ in GOP

Former Vice President Mike Pence has taken a veiled swipe at President Donald Trump, suggesting that the 45th POTUS is an “apologist for Putin.”

Pence made the remarks during a Friday speech to the Republican Party’s top donors in New Orleans.

Pence called on the GOP to move on from the 2020 election before saying “there is no room in this party for apologists for Putin.”

“Elections are about the future,” Pence said.

“My fellow Republicans, we can only win if we are united around an optimistic vision for the future based on our highest values.

“We cannot win by fighting yesterday’s battles, or by relitigating the past.

“Where would Russian tanks be today if NATO had not expanded the borders of freedom?

“There is no room in this party for apologists for Putin.

“There is only room for champions of freedom.”

Pence also took aim at Biden during his speech.

“It’s no coincidence that Russia waited until 2022 to invade Ukraine,” Pence said.

“Weakness arouses evil, and the magnitude of evil sweeping across Ukraine speaks volumes about this president.”

Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy held a zoom meeting with the US Senate today where he asked again for a no-fly zone, which would put America in direct conflict with Russia.

From Fox News:

Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy asked Congress for more lethal aid, more planes, more sanctions and to shut down Russian oil exports during a virtual video call with lawmakers Saturday as Washington weighs more aid to help Ukraine fight off a brutal Russian invasion. 

Zelenskyy spoke on a Zoom video call with more than 280 senators and House members. He wore a military green T-shirt, spoke aside a Ukrainian flag and appealed to the U.S. lawmakers for more help.

“He spoke from the heart,” Sen. Steve Daines, R-Mont., said on Fox News Channel, adding that Zelenskyy also requested to close the skies with a no-fly zone.  

The meeting comes as NATO rejected a Zelenskyy request for a no-fly zone over Ukraine to provide air cover for the Ukrainian people.

Zelenskyy slammed the decision, but NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg warned that having alliance planes over Ukrainian airspace could spark a new world war.
