The Washington Examiner, citing anonymous sources, said Trump told his comrades that if Mr. Pence was at CPAC 2021, he would not attend. “For [ông] Trump, there’s no way back for it [ông] Pence, Washington Examiner quoted “A source close to the former president“. The source added: “[Ông] Trump did not want to stand on the same stage as his former deputy“.
However, Mr Trump’s adviser Jason Miller on Monday (February 22) wrote on Twitter: “The story of [tờ Washington Examiner] is completely wrong, and attacks with “anonymous sources” to cause sharing are the reason why people disgust the media “.
“President Trump has not made any such demands or requests, and in fact, President Trump and Vice President Pence had a great conversation last week.”Mr. Miller wrote.
This story is patently false, and these “anonymously sourced” attacks designed to create division are why people distrust the media.
No such demand or request was ever made by President Trump, and in fact, President Trump and Vice President Pence had a great call last week! https://t.co/pIedeEIZ6X

But for Mr. Pence, the former Vice President will not attend CPAC 2021, scheduled to take place from February 25 to February 28 in Orlando, Florida, according to CPAC organizer Matt Schlapp.
“I will encourage him to come ”, Says Matt Schlapp. He said former Vice President Pence has declined an invitation to attend CPAC 20201. “I think the right-wing movement and the right-wing community want to hear their leaders speak and want to listen to those who want to lead this movement in the future. All of that will start on Friday [25/2] in Orlando“, Said Mr. Schlapp.
CPAC CEO Dan Schneider also told MSNBC on Sunday (February 21): “We are delighted that the president will be with us, and we are disappointed that the vice president will not come. We think it was his mistake. We rightists think of Vice President Pence with great honor and respect. He is a true warrior of conservatism“. Mr. Schneider added that Mr. Pence has spoken more than a dozen times at CPAC over the years. And this year, if Mr. Pence does, he will be “Warmly welcomed“.
