(CBrief) – Former President Donald Trump appeared to some to have taken a swipe at his former Vice President Mike Pence during a speech at the National Rifle Association convention.

It happened on Saturday after Pence had been booed to start his speech in front of the conservative crowd.

“We’re leading so big in the polls, not only against Republicans, but also against Joe Biden. And if you take a look at this week’s Morning Consult poll, I led the field by 33 points with Trump 56 to Sanctus 23, Pence five,” the former president said.

“I hope you gave Pence a good warm approval. He could, nope, because he is a, he is a nice man. If you want to really know the truth. He is. He’s a good man. And I heard it was very rough. It’s a big news story. You’ve made news today. I don’t know what you did, but you made news today with with the introduction you gave!” he said.

“And Nikki Haley, that’s another beauty she’s at four and Abbott’s at one. I don’t think Abbott’s going to run. Governor of Texas. In a two way poll of Florida last week it was Trump 47 and Desanctis 32%. And there was another poll in Florida where Trump was at 80 and Desanctis was at 50. And that’s a Florida poll and Texas is Trump 52%, DeSantis 20, Pence five. Haley Four, uh, you know, the only way we could lose is if we go prevent defense,” he said.
