Former Vice President Mike Pence called out Donald Trump on Monday after the former president asserted that the Constitution be disregarded to allow him to return to the White House.

“I must tell you that I think that everyone that serves in public office, everyone that aspires to serve or serve again should make it clear that we will support and defend the Constitution of the United States,” Pence said on WVOC radio in Columbia, S.C., ahead of a visit to the state on Tuesday.

Pence, who has said he is contemplating a 2024 presidential bid, noted that every federal official takes an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution.

The former vice president also claimed that he upheld his oath to defend the Constitution throughout his four years, particularly in the final weeks of his term as Trump pressured him to reject the 2020 election results.
