( – Despite that they’ve been on shaky terms over the last few years, Former Vice President Mike Pence has still offered the occasional comment praising Former President Donald Trump and their time working together. In a recent interview, Pence spoke confidently about his own campaign while arguing that there was no one else who could have defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016.

During an appearance on the “Hugh Hewitt Show,” Pence argued that he had complete confidence in Americans and specifically Republican voters that they are going to choose the “right standard bearer.” However, he argued that much like he has stated before, no one but Trump could have defeated Clinton in the 2016 race and that this was something Republican primary voters were aware of.

Pence pointed out that originally, he had endorsed Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in Iowa instead of Trump, but that was before he started believing in the Trump movement. He argued that he was proud to have campaigned and served alongside Trump for four years, despite that in the end they had a “falling out.”

He added that to this day, he is proud of the Trump administration’s record, despite the fact that he and Trump completely disagreed on what the Constitution requires of the Vice President regarding the Electoral College Certification.

The primary debates are likely going to provide more insight into the differences that each candidate has, but Pence has argued that his experience allows him to have a slight edge. He added that he has some experience when it comes to a nationally televised debate and that there are people who believe that he did all right.

Pence even argued that he might be the best candidate to debate against Trump, as this is something he did many times during their close collaboration for four years. He expressed confidence during the interview that Republican voters would “choose wisely” as they had in the past, and that he and those voters would take the White House along with the chambers of Congress.
