Trump loses...what incentive for Pence to pardon him?

People have speculated when Trump loses, he will resign & have Pence pardon any future guilty vetdicts. But what incentive would Pence have? It would kill any attempts by him to run in the future because the animal base won't be enough! In other words, the resignation & the deal should have already been done so that Pence would be the Repub nominee. Don is going to end up with his bare ass blowing in the wind😊

It will depend on what he gets convicted of.

He may become a jeopardy question but he’ll always be in the list. That might be enough (along with 20 million over the next 20 years).
