Donald Trump has lashed out at his Vice President Mike Pence, criticizing him for refusing to endorse his false claims that the 2020 election was rigged.
The real estate mogul rejected a question from CNN moderator Kaitlin Collins about whether he would apologize to his former director.
‘No, he did something wrong. I should have returned the votes to the state legislatures and I think we would have had a different result,” the former president told CNN.

I am inclined to forgive many of them. I can’t say for each one because a couple of them probably came out of Control,” Trump said.
The prime time forum in New Hampshire was already expected to be noteworthy when it was publicly announced last week.
Trump and CNN have long clashed, with the former president often calling the network “fake news.”
But jurors in New York found that Trump had sexually abused and smeared advice columnist E. Jean Carroll, though they rejected his claim that he raped her.
The jury awarded him $5 million in damages. Trump called the verdict “an embarrassment” and vowed to appeal.
A small group of anti-Trump protesters gathered Wednesday night outside the town hall site at Saint Anselm College in Manchester.
Their banners included messages like ‘No one is above the law’ and ‘Elections, not insurrection’.
The appearance will also serve as another foil to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who is seen as Trump’s main rival for the Republican Party’s presidential nomination.
The 44-year-old is expected to launch his campaign in the coming weeks but has come under constant attack from Trump for dodging the press.
