Mike Pence, the vice president of the United States, said that the White House wants to defund Planned Parenthood in the health care bill to replace Obamacare. Pence will be meeting with a number of groups opposed to abortion rights later today. The groups have said that they want the language of the new bill clearly state that tax credits can not be used for abortions.

On January 27, 2017, during March for Life in Washington, Pence said "Life is winning again in America. That is evident in the election of pro-life majorities, in the Congress of the United States of America. But it is no more evident in any way than in the historic election of a president who stands for a stronger America, a more prosperous America, and a president who proudly stands for the right to life, President Donald Trump!"

He then also promised that "This administration will work with the Congress to end taxpayer funding of abortion and abortion providers."

During the presidential campaign it might have seemed that Trump and Pence are not on the same page most of the time, and that Pence might be a good counterbalance to Trump, but that might not be the case after all.

While Trump would probably disagree with everything here, that's exactly what he did. Of course, he would probably say that he didn't fire anyone, but Sessions submitted his resignation letter himself. Which is true, but we all know how things like this are being done. He would also probably say that Session wasn't sent away because of the probe but because he was doing bad job in general. And, of course, he would most definitely lie about his own lies.
