The security advisor to the White House, Robert O’Brien, praised Mike Pence for showing great courage and bravery recently.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, he praised Vice President Mike Pence with fine words. He referred to Pence as a ‘genuinely fine as well as a decent man.’ This was right after President Trump went after him again.
Meanwhile, the sudden praise for the vice president came when US President Donald Trump began issuing a series of bizarre statements.
Here is where he asked a mob of his supporters that invaded the Capitol to display tolerance while remaining peaceful.In addition, he continued with his age-old claims of how the US 2020 elections were rigged, leading to his loss.
On the other hand, O’Brien wrote a series of heartfelt notes to Pence, which were later released to the public.
Here, he mentioned how he just ended a telephonic conversation with Pence.Also, he called him out for exhibiting a great deal of courage recently, similar to how he did at the Capitol on 9/11. At that time, Pence was a Congressman.
O’Brien ended the note with how honored and proud he felt to serve with the current vice president.
The sudden outburst of praise comes at a time when drama rocked the US nation recently. Here, Trump attacked ‘weak’ Republicans for refusing to back up his election fraud accusations, as well as refusal to overturn the current election result.
Meanwhile, O’Brien’s reference to the 9/11 attacks that took place in 2001 recalled another monumental occasion. Here, the attack’s prime focus were symbols of the US power, as well as one that many officials believe aimed to target the Capitol itself.
Trump demanded the vice president to not recognize all the electors present in states where Joe Biden won. This is where Trump asserted that a massive fraud took place, without showcasing any forms of evidence.
As tensions in the state worsened, Pence called in the National Guard to assist other law enforcement officials in controlling the situation. And that was undoubtedly a sheer act of bravery.
