China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

Vice-Pres­i­dent Mike Pence has pushed back against a news re­port sug­gest­ing he is lay­ing ground­work for a pos­si­ble the pres­i­den­tial bid in 2020 if Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump does not run. In a state­ment re­leased by the White House, Pence said Sun­day’s story in The New York Times “is dis­grace­ful and of­fen­sive to me, my fam­ily, and our en­tire team”. He added that “the al­le­ga­tions in this ar­ti­cle are cat­e­gor­i­cally false.” The ar­ti­cle said Pence has set up a fundrais­ing com­mit­tee which can ac­cept checks of up to $5,000 from in­di­vid­ual donors.
