Pence and Trump finally speak after post-riot estrangement

https://www.cnn.com/2021/01/11/politics/trump-pence-25th-amendment/index.html

Please note, that this section of the story is 8 paragraphs down from the top of the story...
....(This shows Trump's true character....)
____________________________________________________________________________________
Pence finally got "a glimpse of POTUS' vindictiveness," one source familiar with the situation said, using the acronym for President of the United States.

Trump's treatment of a man who served him faithfully for more than four years outraged those in Pence's orbit -- but also many in Trump's, who view Pence as the most loyal of lieutenants whose treatment they regarded as deeply unfair. And while Pence now appears unlikely to entertain invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office, he has not weighed in on it publicly, allowing the idea to persist, which people close to him described as intentional.

Pence, who is often internally mocked for how deferential he is toward Trump, has taken a quiet but defiant stance in their final days in office. One source close to the vice president said Pence is hoping to spend his remaining days in office telegraphing "to our allies and adversaries that we have a fully functioning government."

After the two men spoke Monday, a source close to the vice president told CNN's Jim Acosta that Pence's advisers are trying to cool the temperature with Trump after their initial outcry.

This is the 3rd paragraph of the above article:

On Monday, after an extended period of silence, Trump and Pence spoke for the first time after a deadly riot of Trump supporters broke out at the US Capitol with Pence inside, according to two administration officials.
