Former vice president of the United States Mike Pence announced this Saturday that he is withdrawing his candidacy in the Republican primaries for the 2024 presidential elections.
“This is not my time,” Pence said during his speech at the Republican Jewish Convention being held in Las Vegas, in which he promised to continue defending conservative values and the Constitution.
Pence’s announcement caught those attending this event by surprise, in which all the Republican candidates are participating and which will be closed by the former president and favorite in the polls, Donald Trump.
Whoever was Trump’s vice president surprised everyone when he interrupted his words of support for Israel to make his “personal” announcement. “After much prayer and deliberationI have decided to suspend my campaign for the Presidency starting today,” he said.
He explained that when he ran in the primaries he did so because he thought that this country has “a lot of problems,” and because he was raised to believe that “To whom much is given, much will be required with everything our country faces”.
