President Trump has reportedly told aides to never mention President Nixon after comparisons have been made between both men’s final days in office.

Trump has reportedly made clear to aides in “separate conversations” that even mentioning Nixon was banned, CNN reported, citing people around the president.

According to the news outlet, he told one adviser in an expletive-filled rant to never bring up Nixon, the only president to ever resign from office, again. On mentions of Trump resigning, the news outlet also reports that Trump told people that he couldn’t count on Vice President Pence to pardon him like President Ford pardoned Nixon.
