Vice President Pence has hit back at a New York Times article he found “disgraceful and offensive.”

The New York Times reported on Saturday several advisers to Pence revealed he is ready to run for President in 2020 if Trump does not, revealing he has reportedly been hosting events at his residence for party donors.

Pence called rumors of him working behind the scenes on a 2020 presidential run “laughable and absurd.”

The former Indiana Governor released a statement, saying:

“Today’s article in the New York Time is disgraceful and offensive to me, my family, and our entire team. The allegations in this article are categorically false and represent just the latest attempt by the media to divide this Administration.

Thanks to the President’s leadership, we are rebuilding the military, ISIS is on the run, and we’ve seen more than 1 million jobs created while the stock market hits all time highs.

The American people know that I could not be more honored to be working side by side with a President who is making America great again.

Whatever fake news may come our way, my entire team will continue to focus all our efforts to advance the President’s agenda and see him re-elected in 2020. Any suggestion otherwise is both laughable and absurd.”
