Analysis: A Mike Pence Presidency Is No Longer Just Dinner Party Chatter in DC — Is He Up to the Job?

  Analysis: A Mike Pence Presidency Is No Longer Just Dinner Party Chatter in DC — Is He Up to the Job? As Donald Trump's troubles mount and support for impeachment grows, it's not unthinkable that we'd find ourselves with President Pence. That scenario has seemed far-fetched — until this week. At the moment there don't seem to be enough GOP senators who would vote to convict Trump if the Democratic-controlled House passes articles of impeachment against him. But the president hasn't been able to quash "Ukraine-gate," the scandal that erupted after a White House whistleblower reported that Trump pressed Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky for dirt on Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

He said the NBA was acting like a "wholly owned subsidiary of the authoritarian regime" for failing to stand up to the government's criticism of Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey.

"Some of the NBA's biggest players and owners, who routinely exercise their freedom to criticize this country, lose their voices when it comes to the freedom and rights of other peoples," the vice president said.

Pence spoke at the Wilson Center in Washington to outline the Trump administration's China policy amid talks on a new trade deal between China and the U.S. He criticized previous administrations for tolerating human rights abuses and unfair trade practices.

"The political establishment was not only silent in the face of China's economic aggression and human rights abuses, but enabled them," he said.

He also sounded an alarm about China's influence campaigns and its crackdown on free speech and other rights in Hong Kong.

The U.S. is not seeking a confrontation with China but "a level playing field, open markets, fair trade and a respect for our values," Pence said.
