After Pence told Trump on the morning of Jan. 6 that he would not agree to the coup plot, Trump changed his speech to attack Pence and incite the mob against his vice president.

1/6 member of the commission Rep. Pete Aguilar said, “OhYour investigation has found that the early draft of the speech on January 6, prepared for the president, does not include a mention of the vice president. The president reviewed it to include criticism of the vice president, and then revealed it further.
The original draft of Trump’s speech did not contain any references to Mike Pence, but Trump changed his speech and eliminated the attacks on Pence after his vice president refused to agree to his plan to cancel the election.
Trump intended to direct the crowd against Mike Pence. His initial speech was bad enough as he called on his supporters to march on the Capitol, but Trump accepted the call for action and targeted the crowd.
Republicans can no longer deny that Trump did not try to incite violence. The failed former president wanted to scare Pence into stealing the election for him.
Along with the evidence that Trump suggests Pence deserves to be hanged while the attack is ongoing, it is undeniable that Trump tried to terrorize Mike Pence.
