Pence ‘Proud’ of High Court: ‘Elections Have Consequences’

Mike Pence, the former Vice President, recently returned from Ukraine, marking him as the first presidential candidate to visit the conflict-ridden U.S. ally. Notably, Pence also shared his “pride” over the recent landmark Supreme Court rulings.

“I share the pride of every other conservative American in this new conservative majority on the Supreme Court of the United States,” Pence mentioned in an interview with Newsmax host Tom Basile, which aired on Sunday.

Pence was involved in the interviewing process for all Supreme Court candidates during the Trump administration and provided advice to former President Donald Trump on the conservative appointees who eventually cast the pivotal votes on three significant cases this week.

“This week they fulfilled our hope and expectation to enforce the law as it stands, to restrict the unconstitutional student loan forgiveness by the Biden administration, to terminate race-based admissions in our colleges, pushing us towards the goal of a color-blind society, and crucially – perhaps most significantly: affirming the religious freedom of every American of every faith,” Pence added.

He stressed, “It’s a reminder that elections bear consequences.”

Under the Trump administration, with Pence’s involvement and advice, Justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett were appointed to the bench. They played crucial roles in this week’s rulings, shaping them in a conservative, rule-of-law manner.

“The nomination of those three justices to the Supreme Court and the way they’re upholding our constitutional rights and highest principles bring me immense pride,” Pence concluded.
