Former Vice President Mike Pence is sharing details about his time with time with former President Donald Trump, including how the two spoke just a few days before Trump's supporters rushed to the U.S. Capitol building to attempt to stop the Senate from certifying Joe Biden as the next president.

Pence recalled the reality star saying he was "too honest" and "hundreds of thousands are going to hate your guts" when he refused to support a lawsuit giving him the authority to have Trump become president again.

“I don’t want to see ‘Pence Opposes Gohmert Suit’ as a headline this morning,” Trump told Pence, referring to the lawsuit filed by House Rep. Louie Gohmert which attempted to give Pence the power to decide what electoral votes count.

“People are gonna think you’re stupid,” Trump allegedly told Pence. “You can be a historic figure … but if you wimp out, you’re just another somebody.”

“The president laid into me. ‘You’ll go down as a wimp,’ he said. ‘If you do that, I made a big mistake five years ago!’” Pence recalled of their conversation the night before January 6.

After the January 6 attack, which saw several people get arrested, Trump seemed to feel remorse for his actions.

“With genuine sadness in his voice, the president mused: ‘What if we hadn’t had the rally? What if they hadn’t gone to the Capitol?’” Pence wrote about their conversation on January 11. “Then he said, ‘It’s too terrible to end like this.’”

Meanwhile, it seems like The Apprentice alum is gearing up to run for president — again.

As OK! previously reported, Trump will have some news to share in the next few weeks.

“This is the year we’re going to take back the House. We’re going to take back the Senate, and we’re going to take back America, and in 2024, most importantly, we are going to take back our magnificent White House,” Trump said at a recent rally.
