Kinzinger Rejects Pence Likening Reagan to Trump: 'No Comparison'
  • GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger rejected former Vice President Pence's comparison of Trump to Ronald Reagan.
  • "Reagan inspired. Trump destroyed. No comparison," Kinzinger tweeted in response to Pence.
  • On Thursday, Pence also defended his role in certifying President Biden's 2020 electoral victory.
During a speech at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Calif., Pence praised the 40th president, who served from 1981 to 1989, as a "one of a kind" and a "disruptor."

Pence then linked Reagan's legacy to that of Trump.

... When Kinzinger, who voted to impeach the former president for his role in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, got wind of Pence's comments, he was unforgiving in his assessment.

"Reagan inspired. Trump destroyed. No comparison," he wrote on Twitter. "I am still amazed at these people that are so deferential to the weakest man I ever met."

... During an appearance on "Fox News Sunday" last month, Kinzinger blasted Trump once again, telling host Chris Wallace that Republican voters have "had their patriotism abused by somebody that simply wants to use it to maintain power."
