“President Donald Trump was acquitted forever,” Pence said to cheers and applause at a dinner in his honor at The Citadel military college, referencing the Senate impeachment trial.

Pence also took the opportunity to criticize House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for ripping up her copy of Trump’s State of the Union remarks, musing, “I didn’t know if she’d ripped up the State of the Union speech or the Constitution.”
