Trump and Mike Pence, spoke today, I'm told -- the 1st time since his supporters rioted at the US Capitol while the @VP was presiding over formal certification of the president's re-election defeat.
Pence and Trump in mtg today “reiterated that those who broke the law and stormed the Capitol last week do not represent the America first movement backed by 75 million Americans, and pledged to continue the work on behalf of the country for the remainder of their term,” SAO says
Key part of statement from senior admin official confirming our scoop on Pence and Trump meeting in Oval today:

They “....pledged to continue the work on behalf of the country for the remainder of their term.”
The @VP just left the West Wing, headed for Naval Observatory. Per early accounts I’m hearing, Trump/Pence meeting was a reconciliation meeting of sorts.

BREAKING: A top Pentagon official, retired Brigadier General Anthony Tata, has tested positive for coronavirus, sources tell me. It's the second time the coronavirus outbreak has hit senior ranks of the U.S. military.

Trump says “from what I heard” Senate Judiciary’s @LindseyGrahamSC

AMY CONEY BARRETT is Trump's frontrunner for the US Supreme Court seat.

His repeated comments that he's looking at five women is partly an effort to build suspense, as he often does.
