There are not many people out there who have forgiven Mike Pence for his spinless actions on January 20th and it appears that President Trump hasn’t forgiven either.
There was no reason at all that Pence could have not stopped the certification of the votes from the contested states, but he did and allowed a stolen election to stand. It seemed for a moment that Trump and Pence had mended the fence between them and that the two would be a possible ticket again in 2024, but after this statement that was just released, it doesn’t seem likely.
Now, he doesn’t formally say that Pence is not EVER going to be a running mate with him, but Trump made his feelings clear about his former VP.

Conservative Brief had more on President Trump’s statement on Pence:
Donald Trump went scorched earth on Mike Pence with a brutal statement and declared that the 2020 presidential election “will go down as the crime of the century.”
Late on Saturday, Trump went after Pence and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
“As our Country is being destroyed, both inside and out, the Presidential Election of 2020 will go down as THE CRIME OF THE CENTURY!” Trump said in a statement.
The next statement took aim at Pence for refusing to send back the Electoral College vote for re-certification.
In this excerpt, Politico writes about DeSantis possibly being an alternative VP candidate:
Spokespeople for DeSantis did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Trump’s remarks about the Republican governor of his adopted home state, which come as DeSantis has cultivated presidential speculation of his own. The praise for DeSantis also represents the latest public fissure in the once-airtight relationship between Trump and former Vice President Mike Pence.
Trump has repeatedly attacked Pence for not doing more to reverse the outcome of the 2020 election — a constitutional authority experts agree the vice president does not have — and even tweeted criticism of Pence as pro-Trump rioters stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6 and threatened his life.
Trump has not yet announced whether he will seek another term in 2024 but said on Thursday that he is “100 percent” considering a campaign. His indecision has temporarily frozen a Republican field of White House hopefuls fearful of moving against a former president who remains exceedingly popular with GOP voters.
